Watson dynamic measurement sensors have been developed for use in some of the harshest environments in the world. Rugged and dependable, our products include individual heading gyros – to give you an accurate heading reference regardless of magnetic dip or acceleration errors – gyro sensors, accelerometers and complete GPS based inertial measurement units, to name just a few.
From using magnetic field variations to detect solar storms, to stabilizing ships at sea, Watson Industries either has the product you need, or will custom design a sensor for your unique application.
Watson Industries gyros retain their durability and accuracy even under vibration, and can withstand a mechanical shock of 200 Gs or greater. This is very important for applications such as vehicle crash testing, weapons testing, and train stabilization control.
Founded in 1980 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Watson Industries produces high quality solid state gyros and gyro systems, and takes pride in supplying cost-effective, custom products and engineering services to a wide variety of industries worldwide, including aviation, aerospace, automotive and marine, among others. Some of our applications include deep-sea cable laying trenchers and the stabilization of satellite tracking antennas.
With over 20 patents and the privilege of regularly presenting professional papers all over the world, we are proud to be considered a leader in our industry.
