Subsea Technology & Rentals Ltd (STR), global specialists in the design, manufacture and rental of advanced subsea technology for the offshore energy industry are pleased to announce a partnership agreement with USA  based Inertial Labs to distribute their innovative motion reference systems.

Inertial Labsí newest product, the Motion Reference Unit (MRU-B2), along with their Enhanced Motion Reference Unit (MRU-E) and (MRU-P) professional model will be the latest products to join STRís expanding rental pool.

The Motion Reference Unit (MRU-B2), is an inertial sensor-based orientation, positioning, and control solution for a diverse array of marine and subsea applications.  It has been 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. The MRU-B2 features high precision inertial sensors for superior accuracy in multiple tasks.

Through STR, Inertial Labs also provides an Enhanced Motion Reference Unit (MRU-E) that contains embedded heading reference and MRU-P professional model which measures horizontal positions and velocities of vessels, boats, ships and offshore platforms with the accuracy of DGPS/RTK.

James Marraccini, President & CEO, at Inertial Labs said: "We're pleased to be able to offer our unique, innovative and marine standard certified Motion Reference Units for marine, offshore and subsea applications through STR.  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 which will suit the needs of STRís client base."

Neil Jackson, Sales and Operations Manager at STR, commented on expanding their inventory of motion reference units and the benefits customers can expect.
