Gladiator Technologies is a leading provider of rugged, high-performance MEMS inertial sensors, specializing in low-noise systems for demanding environments.

Our MEMS-based solutions are used in a wide range of unmanned systems applications, across Automotive, Aerospace, Defense, Marine and Industrial markets.

Our low-noise MEMS inertial sensors are ideal for unmanned vehicle platforms, including UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles) and AUVs/UUVs (unmanned underwater vehicles), and have been used for navigation, flight control, image and platform stabilization, and much more.

Low-Noise MEMS Acelerometers

Three-axis & single-axis accelerometers for precision measurement

Our three-axis digital and single-axis analog MEMS accelerometers deliver exceptionally low noise performance in a SWaP-optimized package, with up to 10 kHz data rates and high bandwidth. The robust sensors have been thoroughly tested over temperature, shock, and vibrations, and are ideal for tactical grade inertial systems.

Low-Noise MEMS Gyroscopes

High-performance gyros for UAVs, UGVs and robotics

Our highly durable digital triaxial and analog single- and two-axis gyros offer lower noise, better bias and improved environmental sealing and connectors. These high-performance units are temperature-compensated for bias, provide g-sensitivity correction, and have the ability to withstand the high levels of environmental vibration and shock typically found in demanding unmanned systems applications.

Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs)

Low-noise MEMS IMU for UAV navigation & payload stabilization

Our advanced Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) are built for robust performance in the demanding environments often faced by unmanned systems. They feature environmental sealing, precision alignment, internal vibrational isolation as well as bias, scale factor and misalignment modelling over the entire operating temperature range.

All of our MEMS IMUs feature our high-speed VELOX Processing technology, and have a common messaging protocol that enables users to easily switch between performance settings without the need for system software changes.
