Description

Astrix 200 presents ultimate performances and reliability which have made it selected by various customers all around the world, including European Space Agency (ESA) for Aeolus, Sentinel 2, SolO and MTG programs.

Astrix 200 offers outstanding inertial performances: its ARW of 2.10e-4 deg/sqrt(h) coupled with a very stable scale factor (< 30 ppm EOL) makes it unrivaled by any other gyro technology. Astrix 200 two-box concept allows the mounting of the non-thermally dissipative sensor head close or inside the optical instrument, enhancing satellite pointing budget, image localization and post-processing performance, also improved thanks to its intrinsic large detection band width (> 100Hz sampling frequency possible).

Astrix 200 is fully qualified for long lifetime and permanently ON missions (up to 15 years in GEO orbit). The first Astrix 200 unit was successfully launched in December 2011 on Pléiades1A satellite and is in perfect operation since then, maintaining its BOL state of the art performances.
