Inertial Aerosystems is launching a new, robust, Micro Electromechanical System (MEMS) gyro-based inertial measurement unit with run stability of 10deg/hour. Manufactured by Honeywell and designated the HG 1900, this product was originally developed for the defence and space industries. Its performance is consistent with tactical missile and smart munitions requirements. The high performance device is said to be cost-effective for numerous commercial applications.
This innovative product boasts a high level of automatic computation as well as complete attitude measurement. Incorporated in the unit are three quartz accelerometers and three tactical MEMS gyroscopes, together with a proven ARM7 microprocessor. It also features a low power consumption of less than 3W, a +/-15V DC or +5V DC supply, an operating temperature range of -55 to +85degC and an accelerometer range of +/-70 'g'. Contained in a physically integrated and hermetically sealed package, the unit measures less than 75mm in height and diameter and weighs less than 450g.
Inertial Aerosystems says the HG 1900 will find applications in military and commercial navigation, robotics, offshore drilling, as well as unmanned land and marine vehicles.
