Aviation

Title

Back in the days traditional spinning wheel mechanical gyroscopes where used in aircrafts. They were heavy, big and expensive. And like all things that spin on bearings, they needed routine maintenance. These days our MEMS gyroscopes and air pressure probes are commonly used in the aviation sector.

The Revolutionary MEMS

These MEMS gyroscopes are tiny, especially compared to the old ones. MEMS gyroscopes don't contain moving parts and they are named after the MEMS technology. An unique silicon ring technology that is coupled with closed loop electronics. The hermetically sealed ceramic body provides the gyroscopes with excellent resistance to humidity and temperature. The MEMS gyroscopes offer highly accurate and stable performance over temperature and time.

Growing business with MEMS

The availability of such high quality gyro's has enabled small and large aircraft instrument companies to grow their business significantly over the last years. TruTrak for example. TruTrak was a small privately owned company in Springdale, Arkansas. They manufacture their own range of instruments and autopilots for aircrafts. Within a couple of years the gyro's have helped transforming TruTrak from a hobbyist into a business that manufactures over 200 instruments per month!

MEMS Air Data Measurement

Next to the MEMS gyroscopes the air pressure probes are often used in the aviation branche. They represent a robust method for air data measurement. Designed for high-accuracy, real-time applications, they return the angles of an aircraft or vehicle with respect to the apparent wind. Air pressure probes can be heated internally for use on high-altitude Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), that makes them perfectly suited for the aviation sector. Data reduction performance in real-time by on-board computers and flight control systems. Almost 90% of the air pressure probes are tailor made, in order to suit your specific requirements.
