At Dexter, we provide high-performance magnets and critical magnetic assemblies for end application in:
• Navigation systems
• Fin motors:
• Extended-range, anti-tank, guided missiles
• The short-range air defense system can be shoulder-launched or fired from an air or ground launcher to counter drone threats
• Sensors for advanced targeting systems with applications such as FLIR technologies

Inertial Navigation Systems

Inertial navigation systems (INS) use a combination of accelerometers and angular rate sensors (gyroscopes) to detect altitude, location, and motion. They may also be capable of detecting attitude, position, velocity, temperature, or magnetic fields.


An accelerometer is a device that measures the vibration, or acceleration of motion of a structure, using an electromechanical sensor that is designed to measure either static or dynamic acceleration.


The gyroscope is basically a massive rotor that is fixed in light supporting rings called gimbals. The gimbals have frictionless bearings that isolate the central rotor from outside torques.
