The continued move higher in the radio-frequency spectrum coupled with the evolution of more accurate phased-array systems has driven the need for inertial measurement units (IMUs), gyroscopes, and accelerometers to be integrated into these systems./span>

This webinar will focus on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)-based systems, that measure pointing, motion, and axis deviations and their applicability to modern radar, communications, and electronic warfare systems. Accurate IMUs are not just needed on airborne and marine-based radar and communications systems. With accuracy, as well as resolution that is improving exponentially, paired with larger independent array designs, it has become critical for advanced radar systems to have their own numerous ecosystems of IMUs integrated to enable the performance expected of the next generation. This technology also applies to terrestrial phased-array systems in motion.

Attendees will learn:

  • Challenges in radar applications that would benefit from inertial sensors
  • Key inertial requirements that come into play
  • Tradeoffs
