EURISA involves four major actors of the European space ecosystem and research institutes: Airbus Defence & Space, ETH Zurich, DLR Bremen and Exail (formerly iXblue).
EURISA will contribute to European independence and sovereignty in space for future missions and exploration.
EURISA is a Horizon 2020 projects, funded for 3.5 years by the European Union (under grant agreement No 101004205).
An inertial measurement unit (IMU) is a device that combines input from several different sensors types in order to accurately output a movement.
It is composed of 3 Accelerometers measuring velocity and acceleration and 3 Gyroscopes measuring rotation and rotational rate
In space, IMUs are used on spacecrafts, space probes, landers, rover or satellites.
