🏢 NAME OF THE INSTITUTION
🏫 ABOUT INSTITUTION
The Birla Institute of Technology & Science, BITS Pilani is an all-India Institute for higher education. The primary motive of BITS is to “train young men and women able and eager to create and put into action such ideas, methods, techniques and information”. The Institute is a dream come true of its founder late Mr G.D.Birla – an eminent industrialist, a participant in Indian freedom struggle and a close associate of the Father of Indian Nation late Mr. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (Mahatma Gandhi). What started in early 1900s as a small school, blossomed into a set of colleges for higher education, ranging from the Humanities to Engineering until 1964 when all these colleges amalgamated to culminate into a unique Indian University of International standing. This university was christened as the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, known to many as BITS, Pilani.
Applications are invited from eligible candidates to work as a Junior Research Fellow (JRF) in a Naval Research Board (NRB) sponsored project at Mechanical Engineering Department, BITS-Pilani, (Pilani campus), Rajasthan. The details are as follows
💼 DESIGNATION / JOB POSITION
- Junior Research Fellow (JRF)
🎯 TITLE OF THE PROJECT
Design and development of MEMS gyroscopes for naval applications
🌟 PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The main Gyros presently used on Naval Ships and aircraft for navigation are Ring Laser Gyros (RLGs) which are primarily Inertial Navigation Systems (INS). The RLGs on ships provide gyro data for Navigation and ship’s heading, roll, pitch, yaw and the rates for other consumers like sensors and weapon systems. The RLGs are expensive (approx Rs 3 – 4 Crores per set) and require very stringent environment control to provide accurate data. Onboard non-weapon platforms, pure Navigation Gyros are used (like Anschutz Std 22M). In addition, all ships are mandated to have a Magnetic Compass to meet the SOLAS requirements, which are supposed to provide ship’s heading in case of total power failures. In addition, for localized requirements like antenna stabilization, data for FCS antenna, etc. Fibre Optic Gyros are also used. The ship’s boats and landing crafts rely on GPS sets (fixed or handheld) for display of heading. This project aims to design and manufacture a MEMS based Gyro that meets the technical specifications for each of the Naval applications. The aim is to develop a Gyro that is much cheaper, smaller, lighter, generates less heat and consumes less power so that there can be significant savings in costs for Indian Navy. With the cost of MEMS Gyro being lesser and smaller in size and weight, ships can have more numbers installed for higher redundancy and it can reduce the maintenance costs also
