"This expansion will bring new engineering and service capabilities to our customers in the region and will enable Rockwell Collins do Brazil to pursue and capture more commercial and military programs" said Nelson Aquino, managing director, Rockwell Collins do Brazil
"In some embodiments, a rotation sensor is provided that includes a resonator means for creating a vibration pattern, means for increasing the equivalent mass of the resonator means, means for driving the resonator means, and means for sensing an orientation of the vibration pattern. The means for increasing the equivalent mass of the resonator means may include a plurality of masses affixed to suitable locations on the resonator means, such as, for example, along a periphery of the resonator means."
"Embodiments of the present invention provide improved systems and methods for estimating N-dimensional parameters while sensing fewer than N dimensions. In one embodiment a navigational system comprises at least one processor and an inertial measurement unit (IMU) that provides an output to the at least one processor, the at least one processor providing a navigation solution based on the output of the IMU, wherein the navigation solution includes a calculation of an n-dimensional parameter. Further, the navigational system includes at most two sensors that provide an output to the at least one processor, wherein the at least one processor computes an estimate of an n-dimensional parameter from the output of the at most two sensors for bounding errors in the n-dimensional parameter as calculated by the at least one processor when the trajectory measured by the IMU satisfies movement requirements, wherein 'n' is greater than the number of the at most two sensors."
"In addition, technology is overall complemented by geo-positioning systems (GPS) and ultrasonic sensors to detect objects that were not anticipated in the route" said Mantilla Caeiros...
