Frequency Response Analysis for Inertial MEMS in Stabilization Systems

June 04, 2012 // By Mark Looney, iSensor Application Engineer, ADI

Vibration and normal movement (cars, boats, planes, etc) causes communication loss, blurry images and many other behaviors that degrade the instrument's performance and ability to provide a valuable function. Platform stabilization systems employ closed-loop control systems to actively cancel this type of motion, in order to preserve critical mission-critical performance and objectives for these instruments.

UAV-mounted surveillance equipment, maritime microwave receivers, and vehicle-mounted infrared imaging sensors are examples of instrumentation that require stable platforms for best performance, but are often used in applications that experience vibration and other, undesirable motion.
