Inertial Labs Launches Its New Motion Reference Unit

Inertial Labs has launched an inertial sensor-based orientation, positioning, and control solution for marine and subsea applications following qualification tests at Norwegian Motion Lab.

According to the company, the so-called Motion Reference Unit (MRU-B2) was designed to meet the exacting standards for Heave, Surge, Sway, angular rates, accelerations, heading, velocity and positioning required by maritime and hydrographic applications for any type of device upon which it’s mounted.

“We’re pleased to be able to offer our unique, innovative and marine standards certified Motion Reference Units for marine, offshore and subsea applications,” said Inertial Labs’ CEO and president, Jamie Marraccini. “We’ve combined small size, high-performance and an affordable price in a single, precision measurement instrument that meets the requirements of a wide range of position and orientation applications.”

The company’s MRU can be¬†applicable for a multitude of uses including¬†vessels and ships, active heave compensators (AHC), helidecks, along with offshore platforms, echo sounders and buoys. It’s also appropriate for ROV and dynamically positioning systems (DPS) watercraft.
