On the ION Joint Navigation Conference Show Floor — Systron Donner Inertial Bringing Their Quartz MEMS Sensors and Systems

Systron Donner Inertial (SDI) is participating in the 2017 ION Joint Navigation Conference, which will be held June 5 - 8, 2017, at the Dayton Convention Center, Dayton, Ohio — the company will be located in booth 205.

At the Exhibition, the company will be showcasing MEMS performance advantages found in their latest Tactical Grade Quartz MEMS Inertial Systems product extensions specifically optimized for flight control, GPS-denied guidance and navigation for air, land and sea systems.  SDI’s full product line of precision Quartz MEMS sensors and systems has recently expanded and improved with the introduction of the:

  • SDI600 – SDI introduces the industry’s first “all-causes” tactical-grade SDI600 MEMS IMU.  Designed specifically for easy integration into missile and munition applications, the New SDI600 features a breakthrough High-Bandwidth (HBW) gyro-design that is proven to significantly reduce vibration sensitivity and improve overall stability under >25Grms captive carry environments.  The SDI600 delivers 1°/hr gyro & 1mg accel bias performance required by today’s modern weapons systems over the full -55°C to +85°C temperature range.  The shorter-compact IMU features an internal/external T.O.V. data sync., up to 95 percent BIT coverage and quickly provides accurate full performance data in 1.0 second.  The sealed IMU is reliable up to 20,000 hours MTBF Airborne Uninhabited Fighter (AUF) for captive carriage at 42°C, repeatable, never needs calibration and is an excellent alternative to larger and costlier FOG/RLG technologies.
  • SDI505 – The new SDI505 is a product extension of the popular tactical grade SDI500.  The SDI505 supports four data message synchronization methods with either input synchronization pulse capability or an output time of validity capability.  The user can choose whether the synchronization pulse is internally generated and output as a Time of Validity (TOV) of the output data or whether the SDI505 software will identify the synchronization pulse input and synchronize the output data to the input pulse.  The SDI505 maintains the compact 19 in3, providing for maximum flexibility in densely packed systems.  The SDI505 delivers full temp-range bias performance under 1°/hr and 0.5 milli-g, the IMU offers exceptional low ARW (.02√/rt-hr) and VRW (80µg/rt-hz), with extremely robust vibration performance under 19Grms
  • SDN500 – The SDN500 GPS-AJ/INS navigation system is a platform extension of SDI’s proven tactical grade SDI500 IMU. 

    SDI's SDN500
    GPS-AJ/INS navigation system.
    The SDN500 GPS-AJ/INS combines latest generation quartz MEMS gyros, accelerometers and external Rockwell Collins NavFire™ SAASM GPS Anti-Jam (AJ) Receiver, creating a tightly coupled powerful GPS/INS System to provide position (3.9m max), horizontal & vertical velocity (0.1 m/s) pitch/roll (1.0 mrad) and heading (1.5 mrad) performance for guidance and navigation applications.
  • SDD3000 - The SDD3000 meets requirements for state-of-the-art systems featuring unmatched MEMS angular rate sensing accuracy and low noise with a digital RS-232 / RS-422 output.  The SDD3000 offers performance rivaling spinning mass gyro technology and RLG/FOG systems with the size and durability advantages inherent in MEMS technology.  The SDD3000 provides a full-range temperature-compensated output with unprecedented 0.5°/hr bias stability and exceptional low 0.01°/√hr ARW.  Ideal for rugged ground vehicle and aerospace applications, the SDD3000 is an extremely versatile rate gyro that can be quickly integrated into new or retrofit applications.
