Applications

Motion sensing in
any environment

Our products deliver robust and reliable inertial performance across a vast range of motion sensing applications. From industrial robotics to satellite control, autonomous vehicle guidance to motion tracking, aircraft attitude heading and reference systems (AHRS) to precision agriculture – our technology has helped change the world.

Guidance & Navigation

From the deepest depths of the ocean through to urban canyons, extreme altitudes and beyond – the world is trying to solve guidance and navigation challenges in far more diverse environments. There is also an increasing demand for guidance and navigation on uncrewed platforms which can be remote-controlled, remote guided or autonomous.

Recognising the limitations of traditional positioning, Silicon Sensing has designed a range of accelerometers, gyroscopes, and inertial measurement units. Our products achieve high performance whilst minimising unit size, weight and power consumption.
For bespoke inertial sensing, our accelerometers and gyroscopes offer high-precision and high-grade tactical solutions. If you need the complete security of a fully calibrated and tactical-grade inertial measurement unit. Our IMUs achieve real performance gains in critical areas such as bias instability (0.03°/hr to 80°/hr), operating temperatures (-40°C to +125°C) and angle random walk (0.004°/√hr to 0.8°/√hr). They deliver a full navigation solution for position fixing and dead reckoning navigation.

Stabilisation

Stabilisation applications require accurate, low noise, precise motion sensing to be able to compensate, in real-time, the effects of vibration and platform motion across all environments. Whether they are used for antenna stabilisation, gimbal stabilisation, platform stabilisation, or other pointing and sensing applications.

Silicon Sensing’s technology achieves tactical-grade performance in critical areas such as bias instability and angle random walk. Our gyroscopes offer low-cost, low-noise, ultra-precise and high-accuracy solutions in a wide variety of applications. Independent analysis clearly shows our latest products can deliver performance equivalent to larger, heavier and far more costly FOG-based units.

Pointing

Modern sensing and communication demand higher fidelity and precision than ever before. It requires accurate pointing of receivers, sensors and transmitters across land, air, sea and space. At the same time, it is necessary to deliver accurate pointing solutions in challenging magnetic fields, high shock and vibration and other environmental disturbances.

Silicon Sensing has a wide range of inertial sensors and systems which support ultra-precise and reliable tracking across any environment. From low-cost, low-noise, high-bandwidth through to tactical grade and low drift. Our gyroscopes are available in a rate range from 10°/sec through to 2700 °/sec.

Motion Sensing

For tactical, industrial, and scientific applications there is a growing need to measure motion and collect motion-sensing data.

Silicon Sensing offers three types of multi-axis inertial sensors for both linear and angular motion sensing. Our family of IMUs can measure 3-axis of motion at a variety of price points, and our combi-sensors offer both dual-axis and single-axis rotation measurements.

High-performance and reliable measurement ranges from 0.85g to 96g are achieved with our accelerometers whilst for superior motion measurement over time, our range of gyros delivers from 10°/sec to 2700 °/sec.
