Extensive research has gone at the core of the Internal Navigation System (INS) with respect to signal processing and micro-electronics
Pulse-40 is a small-sized tactical-grade Inertial Measurement Unit that offers unmatched performance in harsh conditions for applications where precision and robustness matter.
Extensive research has gone at the core of the Internal Navigation System (INS) with respect to signal processing, micro-electronics, calibration algorithms and sensor qualification for unmatched accuracy and reliability.
The Pulse-40 IMU has been designed from the ground up with reliability in mind. Thanks to a drastic selection of sensors featuring extremely low Vibration Rectification Error (VRE), the Pulse-40 can sustain high vibration environments, up to 10g RMS.
The Pulse-40 is a 6 degrees of Freedom, tactical grade IMU, which integrates cutting edge MEMS three axes accelerometers and gyroscopes in a unique redundant design that allows shrinking of the system size while pushing performance level to its maximum.
Among the performance specifications, the Pulse-40 features excellent gyro and accelerometer bias instability of 0.8°/h and 6µg respectively, enabling long-dead reckoning and maintaining excellent heading performance.
Data reliability during operation is also ensured by the embedded Continuous Built-In-Test. This functionality is a key parameter for critical applications. The Pulse-40 requires no periodic maintenance. Indeed, an intensive qualification process including accelerated ageing guarantees that the sensor behaviour is stable over time. The Pulse-40 comes with a 2-year warranty.
