Inertia Sensors

AI-Q-00550

In Strapdown Inertial Navigation Systems, accelerometers are the primary tool for measuring both gravitational and inertial accelerations and providing the host vehicle with Guidance and Flight-Control parameters in a self- contained manner. Ultimately, the success of the mission highly depends on how well the Strapdown system performs and this is to a large extent determined by the performance capabilities of the accelerometers.
