LITEF LCR-110 receives EASA certification
LITEF has received ETSO certification from EASA for its LCR-110 GNSS-aided Inertial Reference System (GIRS).
Freiburg, November 2023 | Precision meets robustness. With its new generation of MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) rotation rate sensors, LITEF presents a sensor with high accuracy in a small design for high vibration and shock requirements.
LITEF's decades of experience in MEMS technology result in flexible sensors that can be optimally adapted to any application – whether in industrial, aerospace, land or marine applications. The asynchronous and synchronous interfaces compatible with the LITEF µFORS family allow the output of temperature-compensated rotation rates, angle increments or accumulated angles, even in data-synchronised multi-sensor configurations. The variously configurable interface parameters allow application-specific adaptation.
LITEF's new MEMS generation allows the production of sensors with a smaller design at lower costs compared to equivalent FOG sensors. This makes the µCORS particularly suitable for applications with high accuracy and environmental requirements with a small size and cost limit.
"Create the virtual cockpit of tomorrow":
The Start-up Challenge
In cooperation with The Drivery (co-working space provider) and Applied Data Incubator (support for start-ups), LITEF organised a Start-Up-Challenge for the first time. The Freiburg-based technology company was the main sponsor and initiator of the challenge, in which a virtual cockpit of the future was to be developed.
Highest safety standards for Airbus Helicopters:

The open sea is notorious for the rough winds that blow across its waters. Safely manoeuvring a helicopter under such harsh conditions requires sure instinct and years of experience from the pilots. This becomes necessary, for example, when offshore wind farms have to be maintained on the high seas or employees have to be transported to or from their workplace on oil platforms. But apart from the pilots' flying skills, there is another thing that is crucial: the right technology behind everything. It is worth taking a closer look at the interior of the helicopters.
