Work Packages

Work Package 1

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.

Work Package 2

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.

Work Package 3

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.

D3.4 FOG and boards available for integration iXblue Confidential
Work Package 4

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.
