SBG Systems has announced the tactical-grade Pulse-40 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) in a miniaturized size for accuracy and ruggedness in harsh conditions, with excellent size, weight, power, and cost rating ( SWAP-C) for its category.
The Pulse-40 is a 6-degree-of-freedom tactical-grade IMU integrating micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) three-axis accelerometers and gyroscopes in a unique redundant design that helps reduce system size while pushing the level maximum performance.
Among the performance specs, the Pulse-40 features excellent gyroscope and accelerometer bias instability of 0.8°/h and 6µg respectively, enabling long dead reckoning and maintaining excellent heading performance. .
Through careful selection of sensors with extremely low Vibration Rectification Error (VRE), the Pulse-40 can withstand high vibration environments, up to 10g RMS. Data reliability during operation is also ensured by the built-in continuous built-in test, enabled by the integration of redundant sensors. This functionality is a key parameter for critical applications. The Pulse-40 requires no periodic maintenance. An intensive qualification process including accelerated aging guarantees stable sensor behavior over time.
The Pulse-40 comes with a 2 year warranty. It is without export license and without ITAR.
SBG Systems has a long experience in the design of inertial navigation systems (INS) based on quality MEMS. Extensive research into signal processing, microelectronics, calibration algorithms and sensor qualification has earned the company a reputation for accuracy and reliability since 2007. Its sensor calibration and validation tools, initially based on a single-axis motion simulator with a temperature chamber, have evolved over the years and are now based on 100% automated multi-axis motion simulators with thermal chambers. The high level of automation mitigates the risk of human error and ensures that all delivered products meet their specifications.
SBG Systems is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company.
