MEMS AHRS Sensor

Orientus Miniature AHRS

Compact, rugged AHRS for stabilization and control

Orientus Miniature MEMS AHRS for stabilization and controlOrientus is a ruggedized miniature orientation sensor and AHRS (Attitude & Heading Reference System) that combines temperature calibrated MEMS accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers using a state-of-the-art fusion algorithm to deliver accurate and reliable orientation in even the most demanding environments.

Orientus features advanced filtering that detects and adjusts for magnetic interference. Its sophisticated algorithm compensates for short-term linear accelerations, allowing the sensor to maintain accurate roll and pitch measurement. Long term linear accelerations can also be dealt with via addition of an external GNSS receiver for full linear acceleration compensation.

Orientus Rugged AHRS for UAV stabilizationOrientus is enclosed in a precision-machined marine grade aluminium enclosure. Waterproof and dirtproof to IP68 standard and shockproof to 2000g, the system maintains high reliability in the most extreme conditions. The minimal size, weight and power requirements make it ideal for unmanned vehicle applications such as platform and camera stabilization, as well as a heading reference source for unmanned surface vehicles.

MEMS IMU Sensor

Motus Miniature MEMS IMU

Ultra-high accuracy miniature inertial sensor for UAVs

Motus Miniature MEMS IMU for UAVMotus is a miniature ultra-high accuracy MEMS IMU (inertial measurement unit) that combines ultra-high accuracy accelerometers and gyroscopes with magnetometers to provide inertial performance that exceeds even some FOG IMUs.

With a volume of just over 1 cubic inch and a weight of only 26 grams, Motus is ideal for SWaP-conscious applications, such as geopointing and LiDAR Motus OEM and Enclosed MEMS IMUmissions with VTOL UAVs. The system is available in an OEM package suitable for integration into larger products, or an enclosed package for external and standalone use.

Motus can be upgraded to full AHRS or INS capability through a simple software license upgrade. With INS capability it can be interfaced to many leading brands of GNSS receivers to create a complete OEM GNSS/INS solution.
