Sensonor STIM300 is chosen by LiDAR USA
The STIM300 IMU is chosen by LiDAR USA for their ScanLook Snoopy mobile mapping system.
STIM300 is chosen an alternative to the traditional and much larger FOG sensors often used in such systems. The company states "The STIM300 appears to be delivering as promised with nearly FOGlike results".
Having used the part in their 3D mapping system they conclude "The results are very good. The STIM300 is a very price performance, size competitive INS." The achieved scanning results are demonstrated here, while the system is described here.
STIM300 small, lightweight and low power, ITAR free high performance Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) with 3 gyros, 3 accelerometers and 3 inclinometers.
The STIM300 IMU is closing the performance gap to FOG (fiber optic gyro) and it is a powerful alternative to current solutions in the market. STIM300 is today being implemented in applications like UAVs, man and vehicle portable target acquisition systems, land navigations systems, turret stabilization, missile stability and navigation, and mortar aiming systems just to mention a few. STIM300 is in regular production.
