January 9, 2014 - Using gyros and accelerometers to calculate pitch and roll angles of 0.1 typ, LandMark™ 50 includes hard and soft iron calibrated, temperature modeled, triaxial magnetometer for heading as well as barometric pressure sensor. Internal software will automatically provide turning error correction with external customer supplied velocity input. Operating from +6 to +36 V, system is environmentally sealed for EMI protection, with RS485 data rate of 100 Hz and internal sampling rate of 4 KHz.

Gladiator Technologies Announces Release of High Performance Landmark(TM) 50 MEMS Attitude and Heading Reference System

Gladiator Technology Services, Inc.
11395 Old Roswell Road
Alpharetta, GA, 30004

Press release date: January 6, 2014

New Ultra-Low Noise MEMS Inertial suite with ARW Noise of 0.001/sec/SQRTHz (0.042/SQRTHour) Enables High Accuracy Pitch, Roll and Heading Angles

SNOQUALMIE, Wash. -- Gladiator Technologies announced the next release in their high performance MEMS product family, the LandMark(TM) 50 Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS). This new AHRS builds upon the successful heritage of the company's LandMark(TM) AHRS product families, including the LandMark(TM) 10, 20, 30 and 40. The LandMark(TM) 50 AHRS is form, fit and function interchangeable with the proven LandMark(TM) 30 AHRS, yet offers substantial improvement in performance utilizing their newest high performance MEMS gyros and accelerometers.

All LandMark(TM) AHRS's use only gyros and accelerometers to accurately calculate pitch and roll angles. The unit includes a hard and soft iron calibrated temperature modeled triaxial magnetometer for heading as well as internal barometric pressure sensor. The internal software will automatically provide turning error correction with an external customer supplied velocity input, either analog or digital. All Gladiator AHRS's share a common messaging protocol for a "common cockpit" approach enabling users the option to choose the AHRS performance, size, weight and price that best suits their application without having to rewrite any interface software. The LandMark(TM) 50 AHRS features robust environmental sealing for EMI protection with an RS485 data rate of 100Hz (4 KHz internal sampling rate) and offers many advanced performance features:

-- Pitch & Roll Angles 0.1 typical
-- Heading Angle 0.5 typical
-- Wide Input Voltage Range +6V to +36V
-- Low Gyro Noise 0.001/sec/SQRTHz (0.042/SQRTHour)
-- Low Accel Noise 0.025mg/SQRTHz
-- In-Run Gyro Bias 1/hour 1
-- Altitude 3 meter typical
-- Fully Temperature Compensated Bias and Scale Factor
-- Misalignment 1mrad and g-Sensitivity <0.002/sec/g 1
-- External Sync Input (1 kHz or 1pps)
-- Bandwidth Filtering Capability
-- Export U.S. Commerce ECCN7A994
-- Link to datasheet, data & images

Gladiator's CEO, Mark Chamberlain, stated, "Gladiator Technologies continues to rapidly innovate and introduce high performance MEMS inertial technologies with the release of the LandMark(TM) 50 AHRS and will be introducing other new inertial systems soon."

Gladiator uses state-of-the-art design tools and manufacturing processes including fully automated environmental and temperature testing and proprietary calibration methods for environmental performance optimization. A comprehensive ERP system combined with lean manufacturing and six sigma techniques has enabled high volume production at low cost and high quality. Gladiator's quality system is certified to AS9100C/ISO9001:2008.
