Solid State Vertical Gyro Roll and Pitch Angle Measurement in High Dynamic Environments High Stability MEMS Sensors High Range Gyro and Accel Options Enhanced Performance Using Kalman Filter Algorithm
The VG400CA is a high performance, solid-state vertical gyro intended for airborne applications such as UAV control, Avionics, and Platform Stabilization. This high reliability, strap-down inertial subsystem
provides attitude measurement with static and dynamic accuracy comparable to traditional spinning mass vertical gyros.
This VG400 series product builds on the performance of the VG300 series. It features higher performance sensors, including silicon MEMS accelerometers and gyroscopes with lower noise and improved bias stability.
The VG400CA achieves its excellent performance by employing proprietary Kalman Filter algorithms to determine stabilized roll and pitch angles in static and dynamic conditions. The Kalman Filter implementation results
in a continuous on-line gyro bias calibration, and an adaptive attitude measurement that is stabilized by the
long term gravity reference. Output data is provided in both analog and digital (RS-232) formats.
Each Inertial System comes with a Userâ€™s Manual offering helpful hints on programming, installation, and product information. In addition, the GYRO-VIEW software is included to assist you in system
development and evaluation, and allows you to perform data acquisition.
