The development of fiber optic sensors has advanced to the point where they now play a significant role in the creation of the next generation of inertial measurement units (IMU).
The next generation of IMUs will provide lower cost, large dynamic range, precision, flexibility of design, and inexpensive fault tolerant system design because of the special properties of Fiber Optic Sensors.
The Global fiber optic inertial measurement unit accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
GranStal’s top-of-the-line inertial measurement unit, the GS-IMU3000TA, was created specially to fulfill the demands of the most difficult applications and operating conditions. It uses the most recent closed-loop Fiber Optic Gyro (FOG) and Quartz Pendulous Accelerometer technology, producing better performance, dependability, and stability over time.
The EN-300 Precision Fiber Optic Inertial Measurement Unit was created by EMCORE. The EMCORE EN-300 is an innovative design that incorporates EMCORE’s unique integrated optical devices to improve performance, offering up to five times better performance. It offers less noise, and more stability, and gyro-compassing allows it to statically determine North to an accuracy of less than one degree.
The tactical grade Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) from LITIS provides almost fiber optic gyro (FOG) performance in a small, light, and durable design. It permits quick system upgrades that offer improved functionality while reducing GNSS dependency.
Inertial measurement units, attitude heading reference systems, and inertial navigation systems will be developed for commercial and defence customers through a partnership between Honeywell and Civitanavi Systems, two of the top producers of inertial navigation, georeferencing, and stabilisation systems.
The first item to be released as a result of this partnership will be the HG2800 high-performance, tactical-grade inertial measurement unit (IMU), which will find use on a variety of commercial and military aircraft as well as for other purposes.
The fiber-optic gyroscopes (FOG) and micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) accelerometers of the HG2800 IMU are intended for enhanced pointing, stabilisation, and brief navigation at low power and low noise.
The deal to buy the assets and liabilities of the L3Harris Space and Navigation company has been verified by EMCORE Corporation. EMCORE will acquire the Master Supply Agreements (MSAs) for the BoRG (Booster Rate Gyro) and TAIMU (Tri-Axial Inertial Measurement Unit) launch vehicle programs as part of the agreement, opening up opportunities for collaboration with L3Harris to grow their respective businesses.
EMCORE provides high-performance inertial navigation sensors and systems for aerospace, defence, and commercial applications, including UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and robotics. With this acquisition, the markets for Strategic Grade and Space-Qualified Fiber Optic Gyroscope (FOG) products are added.
