The LN-200S inertial fiber-optic gyro for space applications offers outstanding accel/gyro bias and random walk performance.
The LN-200S is a small, lightweight, highly reliable, state-of-the-art fiber-optic inertial measurement unit (IMU). The LN-200S comprises three solid-state fiber-optic gyros and three solid-state silicon Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems accelerometers in a compact package that measures velocity and angle changes in a coordinate system fixed relative to its case. Digital output data of incremental velocity and angle are provided to user equipment over a digital serial data bus.
The LN-200S has the performance of the LN-200 family, with additional screening and utilization of radiation-tolerant components for space environments. Additionally, the LN-200S has the same form factor as the standard LN-200. The LN-200S can be installed with software variations that include selectable data rate outputs from delta thetas and delta velocities.
