SBG Systems Introduces Ekinox Micro, a High-Performance GNSS-Aided INS for Mission Critical Applications

Combining high-performance MEMS tactical inertial sensor with a quad-constellation, dual-antenna GNSS receiver, Ekinox Micro is the logical choice for mission-critical applications. It meets theMIL-STD-461, MIL-STD-1275, and MIL-STD-810 standards, ensuring reliable and accurate performance even in the harshest environments.

Measuring just 4.2 x 5.7 x 6.0 cm and weighing only 165 g, Ekinox Micro is small and lightweight, yet rugged enough to handle any application. It includes pre-configured motion profiles for land, air, and marine applications, allowing the sensor and algorithms to be tuned for maximum performance in any condition.

One of the features of Ekinox Micro is its dual-antenna GNSS receiver for heading. However, field-proven algorithms also allow maximum performance even in single-antenna mode for all but lowest dynamics applications.

Ekinox Micro is designed for ease of use and integration, with simple connectors, a web configuration interface, a datalogger, Ethernet connectivity, a PTP server, and a REST API for configuration and multiple input and output formats. This allows developers to easily integrate it into their applications and workflows.

Ekinox Micro is RTK compatible and based on a tactical 0.8°/h class IMU calibrated across the entire operating temperature range, with accuracy roll/pitch of 0.015° and accuracy heading of 0.035° and accuracy position of 1.2 m in without any corrections or 1cm in RTK.

Ekinox Micro also embeds several technologies to fight against GNSS jamming and spoofing. Its dual-band, full-constellation GNSS significantly reduces the chance of an attack being successful. Its mitigation algorithms filter jamming and spoofing, with flags to inform the user whenever corrupted signal is detected.

Furthermore, Ekinox Micro offers an automatic aggressive regression mode to fall back on inertial sensors and velocity aiding as soon as a potential jamming or spoofing event is detected. This allows the system to be used in hostile environments with great efficiency, and to continue navigating for extended periods of time when combined with velocity aiding such as Odometry, DVL or Airdata.

Ekinox Micro is the perfect solution for applications that require high-precision navigation in a small, rugged package. It offers unparalleled accuracy, ease of use, and integration, making it the ideal choice for any mission-critical application.
