Inertial Sensing

Applications pictureLORD, MicroStrain® manufactures small size, lightweight industrial grade and tactical grade inertial sensors, providing a range of measurement options including orientation (pitch, roll, yaw or azimuth), single axis or dual axis inclination, linear acceleration, and angular rate.

We offer simple inclinometers (or tiltmeters), vertical gyros, VRUs (vertical reference units), IMUs (inertial measurement units), AHRS’ (attitude heading reference systems), and INS/GPS’ (GPS aided inertial navigation systems). Designed for applications from personnel tracking and drone navigation to downhole exploration. Select a product below for more information
