Sensonor's MEMS Gyro Module Selected for SIMBAD RC System

The STIM210 three-axis gyro module developed by Norway’s Sensonor AS has been selected to mitigate effects of wave motion of a remote controlled variant of MBDA's SIMBAD twin launcher system. The high-precision gyro module, launched in 2011 and first introduced at the Sensors Expo in the United States in June that year, is the highest performance ITAR-free MEMS (Micro-Electromechanical Systems) gyro module available on the market today, according to Sensonor in November 2014. According to Sensonor's Vice President Sales & Marketing, Hans Richard Petersen, MEMS gyros will continue to advance in performance. The device is closing the performance gap to Fibre Optic Gyro (FOG) systems, representing a viable alternative to current solutions. It offers lower Cost, Size, Weight, and Power (CSWaP) consumption with high reliability and efficient integration into defence applications.

Weighing only 55 grams, the STIM210 gyro module displaces large, expensive, fragile, and prone-to-wear, current Fibre Optic Gyro (FOG) or mechanical gyro sensors.
