The core of SDI’s solution is its SDI300 aviation-grade IMU, which delivers reliable high performance and stability over full temperature and vibration environments, the company said.

The compact, low-power, high-quality SDI300 IMU enables efficient and smooth aircraft maneuvers through the most complex flight scenarios and challenging environments, while improving total system cost-effectiveness, reduced obsolescence and increased sustainability.

“SDI is honored to be selected and partnered with Rockwell Collins, BAE Systems, and Boeing for the 777X IFCE Program. The collaboration, teamwork and support provided by Rockwell Collins and the IFCE program team has been outstanding,” said David Hoyh, director of sales and marketing for SDI. “Systron Donner Inertial has a strong execution and service record on today’s B777.

“The new, smaller, lighter SDI300 aviation IMU will leverage SDI’s next generation quartz gyros and system architecture and be certified to DO-160/DO-254 Level A requirements, creating an innovative MEMS solution for the 777X’s advanced fly-by-wire system,” Hoyh said.
