Many civilian aircraft and helicopters now use MEMS technology in their primary inertial guidance
systems, said Sean Neylon, CEO of Colibrys SA of Neuchatel, Switzerland, which supplies MEMS for the aerospace industry.
The shipborne version, designated the Hermes-K, can be fired from fast patrol boat-sized platforms and uses both the inertial guidance
system (for 15 to 18 km missions and, like the land version, a radio command system comprising a radar and a transmitter to deliver commands to the missile for 40 km missions.
The digital map database provides route information, and a sensor-based inertial guidance
unit supports the GPS receivers.
The land target attack BGM-109C/D Tomahawk utilizes terrain comparison-aided inertial guidance
with digital scene-matching terminal guidance.
Among his other experiences, he was a Staff Scientist at the MIT Draper Lab, where he designed inertial guidance
systems for spacecraft and missiles.
