Abstract
The objective of the proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a generic package that provides high vacuum, temperature control and vibration isolation for a wide range of high performance (tactical and navigation grade) micromachined inertial sensors. Inertial sensors (accelerometers and gyroscopes) are now widely used in consumer and industrial applications. However, for high performance navigation and targeting applications there are several packaging challenges which act as roadblocks to their commercialization including: i) their need for low vacuum pressures (<
