Swathe Services takes delivery of new SBG Systems Ekinox2 INS

27 October 2017

As a result of increasing sales into the UK market, Swathe Services has recently invested in the new SBG Ekinox 2 series Intertial Navigation System (INS system).

Originally released in 2013, the new generation of advanced and compact accelerometers and gyroscopes has enhanced the Ekinox INS attitude accuracy by a factor of two. Based on tactical grade MEMS chips, the Ekinox 2 series now gives 0.02° roll and pitch, 0.05° heading and a centimetre-level position. It is ideal for demanding applications such as hydrography and mobile mapping on land, on the sea or in the air.

Since becoming a distributor for SBG in the UK and Ireland markets in February 2016, Swathe Services has sold over 150 SBG INS systems across the Ellipse, Ekinox and Apogee series covering both the land and marine markets.
