IMU-10, MEMS Inertial Measurement Unit

Sparton Navigation and Exploration is introducing an enhanced MEMS based sensing Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU-10), at AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems North America symposium August 12-15, 2013 in Washington D.C (Booth #3449). Sparton’s IMU-10 has 10 degrees of freedom and provides industry leading accuracy. The IMU-10 inertial navigation system has uncompromised resolution especially when operating within challenging environments. The IMU-10’s user-programmable NorthTek™ interface provides ultimate flexibility during integration and countless platform customization options.

“The IMU-10 is the perfect solution for inertial navigation applications requiring absolute accuracy and high performance,” said Jim Lackemacher, Vice President and General Manager of Sparton Navigation and Exploration division. Jim also adds, “Sparton’s inertial systems provide limitless customizations via the NorthTek™ Development System.”

Features of IMU-10:

  • 10 DOF High Performance Inertial Measurement Unit
  • Enhanced MEMS sensing technology
  • High speed synchronous sampling of all sensors
  • Sculling and coning compensation
  • High speed data logging capability to off-board µSD card
  • Ruggedized enclosure
  • Low power consumption with power management functionality (Sleep Mode)
  • Powerful user programmable customizations via NorthTek™ interpreter
  • High Speed UART interface (user selectable up to 1MBaud) supporting multiple communication protocols including NMEA and binary
