The MRU 5+ product is upgraded with the best MEMS based gyro technology available. With exceptional low angle noise and bias stability the product is ideal for integrated INS/GNSS systems and demanding survey applications. The MRU 5+ provides documented roll and pitch accuracy of 0.01° and angle noise less than 0.002°. Every unit is delivered with an individual calibration certificate documenting this accuracy. This is made possible by use of accurate inertial sensors including three rate gyros and linear accelerometers. The accelerometers included are of excellent tactical navigation grade performance.
