Products/Services for Strapdown Gyro Compass

  • Inertial Navigation Systems-Image
    Inertial Navigation Systems - (78 companies)
    They are typically used in systems that require very precise navigation data, such as ships and submarines. The second design is called a strapdown as the sensors are attached rigidly, or "strapped down", to the body of the host vehicle... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • No Image Available
    Compasses - (56 companies)
    Solid-state compasses are also available. They contain small, magnetic field sensors that provide data for an integral microprocessor. Compass types include fluxgate compasses, radio compasses, hand compasses, and wrist compasses. A fluxgate compass... Learn More
  • Magnetometers-Image
    Magnetometers - (67 companies)
    ...combination compasses and magnetometers are used on satellites and aboard airplanes that map the local structure of the Earth's magnetic field. Navies use compasses and magnetometers to detect submarines under water. Surveyors can use these magnetometers... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Navigational Instruments-Image
    Navigational Instruments - (205 companies)
    ...compasses, range and depth finders, map measurers, and other items. These instruments are used for surveying surroundings, orienting present location, measuring distance on a chart or map, and determining the best route to a given destination. How... Learn More
  • Gyroscopes-Image
    Gyroscopes - (59 companies)
    ...and require regular maintenance. When a spinning mass gyro is titled, the gyroscopic effect causes precession -- motion orthogonal to the direction tilt sense --along the axis of the rotating mass, indicating that the angle has moved. Because mechanical... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Gasket Cutters - (25 companies)
    ...of gasket cutters include compass-style circle gasket cutters, bit brace circle gasket cutters, hollow gasket cutters (or hollow punches), and more sophisticated gasket cutting machines. Compass-style circle gasket cutters have an aluminum frame... Learn More
  • Autopilots - (35 companies)
    Autopilots are a system used to guide a vehicle without assistance from a human being. Autopilots are used in aircraft, boats, space craft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), missiles, and others. Learn More
  • MEMS Foundry - (79 companies)
    MEMS foundry services suppliers design and manufacture microelectromechanical devices on a contract basis, in prototype to production quantities. Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Digital LED Displays - (413 companies)
    Digital LED displays are segmented or dot matrix displays allowing for numeric only and alphanumeric character representation. Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Video Cameras - (1653 companies)
    Video cameras record live-action scenes that are available for viewing via a stored or transmitted video feed. This allows the user to create a permanent and detailed chronicle of events. Video cameras record dozens of pictures (or frames) a second that when viewed in succession, clearly distinguish the translation of an object or person over time. Search by Specification | Learn More
