Xponential 2023 & Sensor+Test 2023

Fizoptika Malta inertial sensors at Xpo23 and Sensor+Test 2023

Fizoptika Malta is showcasing its newest inertial products – ultra-small fiber optic gyroscopes (FOGs) and FOG-based inertial measurement units (FOG IMUs) on two continents: at Xponential 2023 (May 9-11, Denver, USA) and at SENSOR+TEST 2023 (May 9-11, Nuremberg, Germany).

One of the displayed models is the ultra-compact VG221 gyro which contains fully integrated optics & electronics in a 15-gram unit measuring just ∅33×12 mm. The FOG sensor requires as low as 0.3 Watt to operate and delivers 0.05°/√h ARW.

The VG221’s best physical and performance parameters are also found in our latest FOG IMUs – the cylindrical U123D & cuboid U121D. They are both based on VG221s and, consequently, feature:

  • small size (∅40×100 mm / 63x56x40 mm)
  • light weight (180 gr / 145 gr)
  • low powering (1.5 Watt)
  • low ARW (0.05°/√h).

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