Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for Satellites
Results of a 20-year partnership between iXblue and Airbus Defence & Space, the AstriX® Series provides a fail-safe solution for various applications such as observation and scientific satellites, global navigation satellite systems, or telecommunications satellites.
iXblue's expertise in inertial systems is based on a 20 years history in high-performance sensors integration. Today, iXblue makes part of its single-axis FOG available to inertial sensors integrators.
Quartz Vibrating Beam Accelerometers
iXaL Series are accelerometers based on the Vibrating Beam Accelerometer (VBA) technology. The measurement uses the change in the resonance frequency of a vibrating beam under the inertial loading of a proof mass when subjected to acceleration.
