Drones may soon have new high-precision gyroscope

14 May '21
Research and Production Enterprise Gironav with the support of the resident of the special economic zone (SEZ) Technopolis Moscow - Zelenograd Nanotechnology Center (ZNTC) - has developed a high-precision gyroscope for drones. This was announced by Alexander Prokhorov, head of the Moscow City Investment and Industrial Policy Department.

The gyroscope is an integral part of the inertial system of the drone, which is necessary for the spatial orientation and stabilization of the drone. In addition, the device can be used to control the trajectory of unmanned vehicles in case of loss of satellite navigation signal. The new design features improved accuracy and low noise.
The new device is the result of the joint work of Russian innovators and the Zelenograd Nanotechnology Center, which is located in the capital's SEZ. The Nanocenter helps start-up companies grow by participating in financing their projects and providing access to high-tech equipment. Also last year, the center invested more than 200 million rubles in the development of its own industrial site, said Alexander Prokhorov.
The Zelenograd Nanotechnology Center, together with the SEZ Technopolis Moscow, has created a modern infrastructure to ensure full the cycle of work of new enterprises, said General Director of the SEZ Gennady Dyogtev.
The Nanocenter has partially invested in the development of a gyroscope, and its technological complex will be used in the production of a new device. Today the Zelenograd Nanocenter supports more than 30 startups in various industries, including robotics, industrial automation, energy and medicine, Gennady Dogtev specified.
The gyroscope created with the assistance of ZSTC is aimed on import substitution in the segment of microelectromechanical (MEMS) angular velocity sensors, added Dmitry Daniltsev, head of the startup, NPP Gironav.
MEMS angular velocity sensors are produced in Russia, but they are often used within the production chains of large corporations and do not get on the free sale. The new development, on the contrary, is addressed to the open market. The implementation of this project will contribute to solving the problem of import substitution in the segment of high-precision MEMS angular velocity sensors, in which more than 50 percent is currently occupied by products of foreign manufacturers, the developer noted.
