Honeywell – Honeywell partners with DARPA to create inertial sensor technology
Honeywell announced that its next-generation inertial sensors – being developed as part of a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency program – achieved higher accuracy than the tactical-grade HG1930 inertial measurement unit from the based company. on laboratory results.
The company said Monday it had created inertial sensor technologies capable of supporting unmanned vehicle systems for autonomous land and air operations and which would use new electronics and sensor designs.
As part of the Precise Robust Inertial Guidance for Munitions: Thermally Stabilized Inertial Guidance for Munitions program, Honeywell and DARPA have collaborated on the development of the next generation high precision “navigation” IMU product.
Jenni Strabley, director of inertial sensor management offering at Honeywell, said the company aims to increase the performance of new inertial measurement units without changing their weight or size using MEMS technology.
“We believe this new technology will have a variety of applications, such as future in-vehicle vehicles that will fly in urban environments where light and extremely precise navigation is essential for safer operations,” added Strabley.
