Gyroscope for Low Earth Orbit

Used in Satellites and Space-Based Systems

Satellites placed around low Earth orbit provides high bandwidth and low communication latency. Our gyroscope provide the satillites with stabilization for correct 3-axis placement. Due to the gyros design they are suitible for extreme environmental conditions. 

Since it requires less energy to place a satellite into a LEO, the application needs less powerful amplifiers for successful transmission. The low Earth orbit is used for many communication applications, such as the Iridium phone system. Some communication satellites use much higher geostationary orbits, and move at the same angular velocity as the Earth as to appear stationary above one location on the planet. All applications need a gyroscope to easily maneuver and stabilize said application.

Our gyroscopes are built with Coriolis technology to deliver accurate tactical grade performance in a small, lightweight package. With an improved Angular Random Walk and an excellent short-term bias stability, this makes it a perfect fit for demanding space application.

We also have cameras suited for space-based applications.
