Targeted space missions and technical specifications
Identify the space missions and the customers’ needs for a space IMU. Then, define the technical specifications of the IMU and of the sensors to answer these needs in the frame of EURISA.

Space qualified accelerometers
Develop and validate an accelerometer compatible with space environment and well-suited to reach the IMU performances. We are using the quartz VBA (Vibrating Beam Accelerometer) technology to obtain high performances in a compact package together with space qualified COTS electronic.

Space qualified fiber optic gyroscopes
Qualify a fiber optic gyroscope for the IMU based on the gyroscope develop in the frame of the H2020 European project Pioneers. It is a very compact design and it will use space qualified COTS electronic as the accelerometer.

IMU integration and performances qualification
Merge the accelerometers and gyroscopes triads that were developed in WP 2 and 3 to build EURISA IMU. Then, the IMU is tested in representative environments.
Develop algorithms to merge the data and to couple/hybridize all the data for improved navigation.
