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.
