Inertially stabilized systems (iss) Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Inertially Stabilized Systems(ISS)Aitor Ortiz de LatierroMarc Vizcarro CarreteroInertially Stabilized Systems
  • 2. Index1. IntroductionI. What are they?II. Gyroscopes and gimbalsIII. Types of ISS2. Abridged history3. System structure4. Involved technologies5. Actual uses6. Societal implications and buisness model7. ISS in the future8. Conclusion9. BibliographyInertially Stabilized Systems
  • 3. 1.Introdcution (Background + need of the product)They are based on inertiaKey concepts: moment of inertia, rotational inertiaInertially Stabilized Systems
  • 4. 1.Introduction (II)1.1 What are they?Inertially Stabilized Systems are systems that through inertia are used to: Stabilizaise objects Stablish new systems of reference Send data about movement and positionInertially Stabilized Systems
  • 5. 1.Introduction (III)1.2 Gyroscopes and gimbalsGyroscope Gyroscope + GimbalAxis defined in arotating wheel(Roll, pitch, yaw)Inertially Stabilized Systems
  • 6. Inertially Stabilized Systems
  • 7. Inertially Stabilized Systems
  • 8. 1.Introduction (IV)1.3 Types of ISS Gyros and gimbals AccelerometersInertially Stabilized Systems
  • 9. 2. Abridged Story Second World War, the biggest stimulus Missiles, bombs and all kind of aircrafts.
  • 10. 2. Abridged Story (II) Space Career was also a great impulse. Guidance Systems are also related.
  • 11. 3. System Structure Modern platforms have complex structures but we can always identifysimple patterns.
  • 12. 4. Involved technologies Computers and programming Electronics Warfare Optics Imaging Mechanics and engenering Among othersInertially Stabilized Systems
  • 13. 5. Actual usesPhotographing and imagingMovement sensorsInertially Stabilized Systems
  • 14. 5. Actual uses (II)Military usesInertially Stabilized Systems
  • 15. 5. Actual uses (III)SpacecraftAircraft andnavigationInertially Stabilized Systems
  • 16. 6. Societal implications and business model The use of ISS is widely spread around the world As a technology alone they are useless, whilst if combined with others theyhave great potential Its use has increased with the arrival of smartphones and with the release ofthe first robots in the markets. Accelerometers are cheap and small, however the use of gyros and gimbalsmakes ISS sophisticated and quite expensive. Summary of uses and applications:Inertially Stabilized Systems• Photographing and imaging• Warfare• Movement sensors• Spacecraft• Aircraft and navigation
  • 17. 7. ISS in the future Open field with lots of applications. Big interest in R&D. Robots need them to have its own reference system
  • 18. 8. ConclusionDespite being used as weapons in the past, actually we arebeginning to use them for entertainment (smartphones, massmedia), research (satellites, navigation…)…As the robotic era approaches, ISS are determined to form part ofit by ensuring stabilization and giving chance of having your ownsystem of reference.Inertially Stabilized Systems
