Gladiator Technologies has announced the introduction of its new three-axis inertial rate system, the G300D gyroscope. With small size, low power and high speed, the G300D gyro is particularly well-suited for stabilization of aerial imaging systems about unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
The G300D measures .67 cubic inches, and features message timing under 150 microseconds and output data rates of up to 8kHz with external sync. This MEMS Gyro has an extremely low ARW of <0.0028°/sec/√Hz and an option for both 24 and 32-Bit LSB for exceptional resolution. Users can configure the G300D to their desired configuration using a Software Development Kit or through software protocols – all designed to simplify the integration process.
“The G300D, with a 250Hz bandwidth, allows users to replace more complicated and expensive gyros for image stabilization applications. The three-axis package is also convenient for mounting in any orientation for tight space requirements,” commented Rand Hulsing, Chief Scientist at Gladiator Technologies.
“The G300D product is a good example of our SX-series architecture, which has enabled Gladiator to extend our sensor fusion technologies into high speed applications with message latency under 150 usec,” added Lee Dunbar, Chief Software Architect at Gladiator Technologies. “This output offers minimal phase lag like an analog sensor by virtually eliminating typical signal processing and digital conversion overheads.”
The G300D gyro is a non-ITAR product.
