KVH Fiber Optic Gyro

Delivering Breakthrough Gyro Performance and Value

Precision Fiber Optic Gyros, IMUs and INSs

Commercial and military customers turn to KVH high performance precision sensors and systems for the navigation, stabilization, and guidance challenges they face on land, on the sea and in the air. KVH fiber optic gyros (FOGs), inertial measurement units (IMUs) and inertial navigation systems (INSs) are recognized by industry leaders as delivering both high performance and great value.

Designed for demanding environments, KVH’s single and multi-axis FOGs and inertial sensors are used in the most challenging applications including autonomous vehicles, robotics, weapons stabilization, high speed gimbal stabilization and pointing, precision agriculture, subsea vehicles, underground mining, pipe inspection, and more.

FOG application

To navigate accurately in a given environment, robots rely on many sensors including high performance KVH inertial measurement units for relative positioning and fiber optic gyros for stabilization.

FOG application

Accurate and reliable inertial navigation data provided by KVH IMUs is crucial for underwater unmanned vehicles such as the Iver2 from OceanServer Technology Inc.

FOG application

The inertial navigation systems of dynamic mobile mapping applications rely on KVH fiber optic gyro-based inertial measurement units (IMUs) to provide navigation data when GPS/GNSS signals are weak or unavailable.

FOG application

U.S. military, an avid supporter of unmanned vehicle technology, is interested in robotic pack mules designed to function off-road and without reliance on GPS/GNSS, using inertial data for dead reckoning navigation.

FOG application

These massive trucks are programmed to pick up, deliver and return to a way station without human drivers, relying on sensors including an inertial navigation system using a high performance KVH IMU to help provide navigation data.

FOG application

Pipeline inspection gauges require inertial navigation and positioning data from KVH gyros and inertial sensors to accurately maneuver through miles of underground pipeline where GPS/GNSS signals are blocked.
