ANELLO Photonics launches new 3-axis optical gyroscope


ANELLO Photonics, developer of the ANELLO SiPhOG (Silicon Photonics Optical Gyroscope), has announced the official launch and availability of the ANELLO X3, a new 3-axis optical gyroscope inertial measurement unit (IMU). The company says this product is designed to redefine navigation and positioning in GPS-denied and contested environments.

The demand for precise and reliable navigation in challenging conditions is ever-growing, with size, weight and power being key critical metrics. According to ANELLO Photonics, the ANELLO X3 addresses these demands, as the world's smallest, lightest, lowest power tri-axial optical gyroscope providing high accuracy, performance and reliability for today's autonomous applications.

The ANELLO X3 is intended as a solution for autonomous commercial and defence applications involving robots, drones, uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs), electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft and also various maritime and land vehicle applications including high-accuracy surveying and mapping.

“The ANELLO X3 represents a significant leap forward in navigation technology,” said Dr Mario Paniccia, CEO of ANELLO Photonics. “Its unparalleled precision and tri-axial capabilities make it the ideal solution for applications where size, weight, power, reliability and precise navigation is critical. We are confident that the ANELLO X3 will set a new standard for performance for autonomous solutions and systems operating in GPS-denied or contested environments.”

Russell Ellwanger, CEO of Tower Semiconductor, commented: “We have been engaged with ANELLO since their inception and have been greatly inspired through partnering to create world best figures of merit. I am very excited to see them launching the ANELLO X3 to the world at CES. Silicon photonics remains of strategic importance to Tower within which the SiPhOG is a cutting-edge technology with vast potential for both commercial and defence applications. We look forward to continuing this great partnership with Dr Paniccia and the ANELLO team and contributing to the high-value offering they have developed.”

Hugh Wyman Howard III, Retired US Navy rear admiral and former commander of Naval Special Warfare, added: “The ANELLO X3 substantively improves the Joint Force's survivability and lethality with resilient precision, navigation and timing capabilities. Available now for field and weapon system integration, the ANELLO X3 provides our forces winning edge in contested combat environments with either no GPS or where GPS signals are jammed or spoofed. I look forward to seeing the immediate impact of this innovative technology with hypersonic systems and in autonomous multi-domain unmanned systems in the air, land and sea.”
