Inside GNSS, January/February 2017
Horten, Norway–based Sensonor AS is in serial deliveries supporting the STIM210, which is designed to provide high accuracy inertial data for the AXD-LNS Land Navigator Solution. The Land Navigator went into regular production in late 2016, following five years of development.
The GMA AXD-LNS is a high performance navigation system intended for a wide range of applications, such as advanced navigation displays and advanced navigation control systems in armored vehicle programs. Because of its high-stability MEMS sensor-based architecture, the AXD-LNS equipment is easily configured for platform stabilization applications. In a GPS-denied environment, the system exploits the velocity aiding with help of the high accuracy inertial data to provide a continuous navigation solution.
The AXD-LNS product specifically addresses the stabilization and guidance needs of the defense market, and all of its components comply with the demanding standards of safety and reliability used in this field.
STIM210 is a small, lightweight and low power, ITAR free high performance tactical grade gyro module with three gyros. According to the company, the STIM210 is closing the performance gap to FOG (fiber optic gyro) and is a powerful alternative to current solutions in the market. STIM210 is currently deployed in applications like unmanned aerial vehicles, satellites, portable target acquisition systems, land navigation systems, turret stabilization, missile stability and navigation, and mortar aiming systems. STIM210 has been in regular production since 2010 and is part of the STIM gyro and IMU family that has fielded more than 50,000 gyros worldwide.
