Fizoptika Malta at Joint Navigation Conference 2023

In June, Fizoptika Malta showcased its miniature inertial sensors on the exhibition floor of the Joint Navigation Conference (JNC) for the fist time.

Our ultra-compact VG221 fiber optic gyro with fully integrated optics & electronics in a 15-gram unit was shown in operation. This FOG sensor requires as low as 0.3 Watt and was powered via a tablet USB port.

On display there were also our newest FOG-based IMUs which inherit the VG221’s best physical and performance parameters. Both U123D (cylinder-shaped) and U121D (cuboid) feature small size (∅40×100 mm / 63x56x40 mm), light weight (180 gr / 145 gr), low power consumption (1.5 Watt), and low noise performance (0.05°/√h ARW).

These miniature non-ITAR FOG IMUs are suitable for a range of unmanned systems applications, including GPS-aided navigation for UAVs, USVs and UUVs, and drone flight control.
