Modern Inertial Applications for Aerospace and Defense
There are challenges in MEMS technology today that existing options are either too large or overall performance is inefficient. The latest family of ADI MEMS addresses this. As ADI surpasses the 1 degree per hour IMU barrier, small MEMS devices can now be incorporated into newer technologies like soldier wearables, small munitions, and barrel stabilizations systems along with historical applications such as ADAHARS, UAVs, and vehicle stability.
Attendees will learn:
- Recent advances in MEMS inertials providing increased performance in small packages
- How to select and implement the correct MEMS gyroscope, accelerometer and/or inertial measurement unit for military applications
