Although the target application is a gyro system for small satellites, any NASA sounding rocket, research balloon, or space platform that needs a gyro system with improved SWaP-C will benefit from this technology development. Its small form factor lends itself to alternative applications such as planetary exploration bots and extravehicular platforms.
The commercial aviation sector and commercial companies involved in advanced aerospace projects are obvious candidates for this technology. The oil and gas industry needs to displace magnetometers to improve their measurement-while-drilling capabilities, which will lower the cost of energy resource exploration; thus a rugged, advanced miniature gyro system would offer a significant advantage. DOD programs involving advanced interceptors and space platforms can also benefit from a small, low cost gyro system that is radiation tolerant, immune to EMI, and capable of surviving harsh environments.
