Research Institution
Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) for flight systems (interceptors, airborne platforms, and space assets) are constrained by limits on size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C). These IMUs are also exposed to severe shock and vibration during storage, transport, launch, staging, deployment and engagement. This Phase II effort will continue research from the Phase I and achieve three main objectives 1) Demonstrate sufficient isolator performance 2) Demonstrate a process for a manufacturable micro-isolator and 3) Demonstrate vibration and shock performance of resonant Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) sensors.
