SMC has developed its IMU range of Motion Sensors to  meet the requirements of the hydrographic and marine  sectors. The IMU range provides high accuracy motion  measurement data in dynamic environment in all areas from  small hydrographic vessels to large oil rigs in all weather  conditions.

The SMC IMU uses solid state gyros and accelerometers to provide real time motion measurements with high dynamic accuracy even during accelerations. State of the art design, construction and assembly produce an IMU with an extremely high reliability in the most demanding marine environment.  Ideal for providing heave compensation for a wide range Single Beam Echosounders or Sub Bottom Profilings such as the Knudsen Pinger Echosounder / Chirp SBP.
