The KVH TG-6000 Tactical Grade Inertial Measurement Unit is a high-performance, 6 degrees-of-freedom, fiber optic gyro-based motion sensing package ideally suited for motion control and GPS-integrated navigation applications.

This highly reliable, strap-down inertial subsystem provides accurate measurement of angular rate and linear acceleration and achieves its excellent performance by employing proprietary algorithms to characterize and correct for the effects of temperature, linearity, and misalignment. Output data is provided in a digital (RS-422) format, as well as other available digital formats. The KVH TG-6000 IMU offers the best-value solution whether your application involves flight control, orientation, instrumentation, or navigation.

The TG 6000 is controlled by the Arms Export Control Act (Title 22, USC Sec 2751 et seq.) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, ITAR, 22 CFR 120-130, and may not be exported from the United States or disclosed to a foreign person in the united States except as authorized by those regulations.

FAQ

A:
Yes, the TG-6000 is ideally suited for GPS-integrated navigation and motion control.
A:

Yes. Complete product details are available on the TG-6000 product page.

A:
The geometrical birefringence created by the elliptical core is the key to the E-Core fiber's outstanding polarization-maintaining abilities. Because of its design, it is able to maintain its polarization and low-loss characteristics when exposed to physical stresses and temperature-induced changes far better than PM fiber created using stress-induced birefringence. It is the E-Core fiber's stability that makes it an excellent choice for pigtailing optical components.
A:
KVH's E-Core fiber offers a number of advantages, including high polarization maintaining ability (greater than 40 dB-m) and low sensitivity to stress and temperature. These features make E-Core fiber ideal for fiber splicing and pigtailing to other optical components in applications where preserving the state of light polarization is critical to the operation of the device.

The geometrical birefringence created by the elliptical core is the key to the E-Core fiber's outstanding polarization-maintaining abilities. Because of its design, it is able to maintain its polarization and low-loss characteristics when exposed to physical stresses and temperature-induced changes far better than PM fiber created using stress-induced birefringence. It is the E-Core fiber's stability that makes it an excellent choice for pigtailing optical components.

The elliptically shaped core region within an E-Core fiber has a significantly higher index than the surrounding cladding, creating the geometrical birefringence necessary to maintain the polarization of the light within the fiber. The E-Core fibers are manufactured using high-grade silica materials and various high-purity dopants. A dual UV-cured acrylate coating is applied to standard fibers, thereby preventing moisture from penetrating the fiber, preserving its strength, and improving its handling characteristics.
A:

All KVH FOG products meet the European Community Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive and are approved to display the CE mark. They have been tested for conformance to electromagnetic emissions and susceptibility requirements. The units also meet FCC Part 15.
