Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Versatile, Compact, Low-Cost, MEMS-Based Image Stabilization for Imaging Sensor Performance Enhancement, Phase I
LW Microsystems proposes to develop a compact, low-cost image stabilization system suitable for use with a wide range of focal-plane imaging systems in remote sensing and other space-based applications. The system would be used in conjunction with integrated rotation sensors/gyroscopes to deflect light to counteract the effects of vibrations. This approach has the advantage over both image processing software and conventional gimbal-based approaches in being able to stabilize the image to higher frequencies without compromising on image size, resolution or speed. The mass-produced low-cost devices at the core of the system along with the post-assembly electronic tuning of the stabilization module also enable significant cost advantages over other stabilization approaches.
