Northrop Grumman (Woodland Hills, CA) has delivered the first production unit of the new LRS-2003 two-axis rate sensor. The first application of the LRS-2003 will be to stabilize a mast-mounted sensor suite for a ground vehicle.
According to the company, the LRS-2003 is the smallest tactical-grade, two-axis, digital rate sensor on the market. Features include:
- Applicability in platform and gimbal stabilization; electro-optical/infrared camera, radar, gun and turret stabilization; remote weapons stations; and missile, torpedo and ground vehicle applications.
- An assembly that offers size, weight and power efficiency advantages.
- Angle random walk (ARW) for accuracy when providing high-rate digital angular rate measurements —ARW is a measure of the white noise component within the gyro’s angular rate output signal and is an indicator of the gyro’s short-term accuracy.
