Guidance & Inertial Sensors
Our inertial sensors segment is started in late '80s with the design and manufacturing of mechanical gyrocompasses and lived a season of renewed research efforts from 2000, when a new facility was build up to design and develop Photonics sensors based, in particular, on Interferometric Fiber Optic Gyroscope (IFOG) technology. Since then, GEM's research activities in the field of optical inertial sensors passed through several successes, as the development of the first IFOG based Gyrocompass and, then, the development of the first IFOG based INS.
Today GEM elettronica’s IFOG program includes a number of different specification models and embraces inertial navigation systems that are suitable for Guidance, Navigation & Control in a wide range of military and commercial applications. In addition it can provide, on customers request, also design and development of customized IFOG products for specialized applications.
