Silicon Sensing brings latest space-focused inertial products to Space Tech Expo

Silicon Sensing Systems will exhibit four new inertial products developed to meet the demands of the space market at Space Tech Expo in Bremen, Germany, this month.

Each of the micro electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) products being exhibited offers a performance alternative to equivalent, but heavier and less robust, fibre optic or dynamically tuned gyro-based devices. All offer excellent angle random walk, bias instability and low noise performance combined with high shock survivability.

The CRH03 is a miniature, standalone single axis gyro. The RPU30 is a compact and rugged, 3 axis gyroscope for applications where linear acceleration measurement is not needed. The IMU20 is a highly ruggedized, 6 degrees of freedom (DoF) inertial measurement unit (IMU) suited to the highest impact and vibration environments. And the DMU41 is a compact, 9 DoF IMU and the highest performing silicon MEMS IMU on the market today.

All these products are based around Silicon Sensing’s proven, unique, resonating ring gyroscopes with the IMU’s also using the company’s market-leading accelerometers. The performance of each can be tailored to meet specific operational requirements whilst most are available as either an OEM or packaged device.

Steve Capers, General Manager of Silicon Sensing comments: “These non-ITAR products will meet motion sensing requirements across the launch vehicle and small satellite markets, offering ultra-reliable, sustained performance in the severest environments and wherever space and power is at a premium.”
