ship inertial navigation system / GPS
The MGC R2 product is a fully inertial navigation system (INS). It can output heading, roll, pitch, heave and position. Acceleration and velocity of linear motions, as well as angular rates, are output from the unit. The MGC R2 product outputs both processed and raw (gyro and accelerometer) sensor data.
The MGC R2 product can be used as a stand-alone unit or as an IMU in other systems. The product is designed for high precision maritime applications such as offshore operations and seabed mapping. The product includes integrated navigation algorithms with input from a GNSS receiver for output of aided position and heading data. The proven PFreeHeave® algorithms are part of the navigation algorithms that enable down to 2 cm accuracy in delayed heave output and 5 cm accuracy in real-time heave output. The linear position and velocity measurements can be output in up to four different points on the vessel.
The mounting bracket has been specially designed to enable easy alignment to the vessel axis or the axes of the system on which the unit shall measure the motion. This will ensure that the user gets precise measurements from the unit when it is installed.
