Asteroid Day 2022
On International Asteroid Day we wanted to reflect on what asteroids are, why space-based...
An IMU is a combination of multiple accelerometers and gyroscopes axes. Traditionally, an IMU is built with an accelerometer and gyroscopes to measure absolute spatial displacement. In comparison, an INS is a system integrating an IMU combined with a GPS/GNSS/GLONASS chip and computational skill.
Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) and Inertial navigation systems (INS) are highly complex and technologically advanced products requiring high performing sensors.
They require analytical inputs from accelerometer and gyroscope to track the position and orientation of an object relative to the starting point and velocity of the object. Since there is an ever-increasing demand for accuracy in IMU's and INS's across various application platforms within space, maritime, aerospace and land applications, the sensors within them must be advanced.
InnaLabs® Quartz Servo Accelerometers, Coriolis Vibratory Gyroscopes and experienced engineers enable IMU and INS designers to produce enhanced technology for today's advanced systems.
Cost advantage and simple structure
Accelerometers which are integrated into navigation, guidance or piloting systems are required to meet very demanding performance requirements in terms of accuracy, stability and linearity. Typically these requirements must be achieved under stringent conditions, at sea, on land, in air, and over the full life cycle of the system. Therefore not surprisingly, only two technologies so far have risen to the challenge and have demonstrated the right capabilities: Vibrating Beam Accelerometer technology and Quartz Pendulous Accelerometer technology. Since their roll out in the ‘90s, Quartz Pendulous Accelerometers rapidly became the most widely used accelerometers for high-grade navigation applications and this position remains largely unchallenged to this time.
