Tactical-Grade MEMS IMU

Utilizing the latest advancements in Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology, the VN-110 incorporates an suite of tactical-grade inertial sensors, including a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis magnetometer. The VN-110 has been designed to achieve the highest performance possible by filtering out common error sources, such as sensitivity to supply voltage variations and temperature dependent hysteresis.

Extended Inertial Sensor Thermal Calibration

MEMS inertial sensors are subject to several common sources of error: bias, scale factor, misalignments, temperature dependencies, and gyro g-sensitivity. To ensure the highest level of accuracy, each VN-110 sensor undergoes a rigorous calibration process to minimize these error sources. Compensation parameters calculated during these calibrations are stored on each individual sensor and digitally applied to the real-time measurements. This calibration process is performed over the full thermal operating range of the VN-110 (-40°C to +85°C).
