EPSILON 20: INERTIAL LAND NAVIGATION & ORIENTATION UNIT
FMU series

Capitalizing on Safran Electronics & Defense's 60-year experience in inertial systems, these units are equipped with FOG gyro technology and servo-looped MEMS accelerometers.
FMU IMUs, as well as their packaged versions, are particularly designed for civil and industrial applications which need to combine very high reliability, excellent signal stability and very low noise.

FMU: FOG Inertial Measurement Units
PRIMUS

Thanks to its 3 HRG sensors, Safran Electronics & Defense's PRIMUS Inertial Measurement Unit family achieves high performance in a small size and is perfectly ready for integration into applications even with the most demanding requirements.

PRIMUS: Hemispherical Resonator Gyro Inertial Measurement Unit
Rate Gyro Unit 10 20 & 30MS56 series

The MS56 series was specifically designed for applications combining a very low signal-to-noise ratio and exceptional bias stability, all at a reasonable cost. The gyro units come as a kit or in a hermetically-sealed box with up to 3 axes, depending on customer requirements.
The "Quapason" sensor is a highly robust resonating gyroscope.
The gyros are dedicated to sights and optical systems, RCWS, small and medium-caliber guns, feed forward gyro for more precise stabilization, as well IMU in civil applications.
Drawing on its expertise covering all gyroscope technologies (vibrating gyros, wheeled mechanical gyros, fiber-optic and laser units), Safran Electronics & Defense can deliver the right technologies and the best combination of cost and precision to meet all stabilization requirements.

10, 20 & 30MS56 SERIES10MS57-HP
Rate Gyro Unit 20BM60 series

The 20BM range was designed for high-precision stabilization, on equipment such as large caliber guns, gyro-stabilized gimbals, naval and land turrets or optical sights.
As part of the extensive panel of inertial systems designed and manufactured by Safran Electronics & Defense, this dynamically tuned gyroscope (DTG) offers the best compromise between precision required for stabilization purposes, robustness, reliability, and price.
The gyroscopes or gyrometers come as a kit or in a hermetically-sealed box depending on customer requirements.

20BM60 SERIES
Rate Gyro Unit 20BM67-HP

The new 20BM67-HP range by Safran Electronics & Defense delivers a digital Plug & Play solution for stabilization needs.
This unit features a dynamically tuned gyroscope (DTG) delivering the best compromise between precision required for stabilization purposes, robustness, reliability, and price, as well as a digital readout.
This new range is well-suited for large-caliber guns, gyro-stabilized gimbals, naval and land turrets or optical sights.
The gyro units come as a kit or in a hermetically-sealed box depending on customer requirements.
