CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) gyroscopes have successfully passed inorbit testing on the European Space Agency's (ESA) Earth Explorer CryoSat-2 satellite during a mission to detect shifts in global ice cover. The Goodrich Micro Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) gyros were the smallest ever flown by ESA and were used to monitor the satellite's rate of spin. They were integrated into the SiREUS rate sensor to form Europe's first MEMS-based...

As CryoSat-2 works to detect shifts in global ice cover, it carries one small but significant passenger. A miniaturized sensor evolved from automobile stability control systems is checking the satellite's rate of spin "“ Europe's first MEMS device designed for space navigation. The MEMS Rate Sensor is the smallest gyro ever flown by ESA, and was given a guest slot on CryoSat-2 as a flight experiment. It has amassed more than 150 days' worth of measurements so far, which is cross-checked...

One of ESA's future Earth observation missions will monitor its orientation in space with the help of the smallest gyro ever flown by the Agency. Now being tested, the sugar cube-sized device at the heart of the gyro unit is derived from a sensor used in anti-lock braking systems on millions of cars. There is no up or down in space. Satellites track their pointing direction using the same approach as on submarines and aircraft: fast-spinning gyroscopes that maintain a fixed orientation in the...
