As Your Ideas Evolve, So Do KVH’s Solutions

By capturing highly accurate angular rate and acceleration data, KVH fiber optic gyros (FOGs) and FOG-based inertial systems deliver against both the needs of end users and the demanding specs required for applications in the air, on land, and at sea.

High-performance, Compact, Affordable FOGs

KVH’s FOGs sense changes in orientation, then accurately and reliably provide this data to navigation and control systems in diverse unmanned and manned applications.

Versatile with Easy Integration

Available as housed and unhoused sensors in 1, 2, or 3-axis configurations, our FOGs offer numerous installation and performance options for demanding navigation systems.

“The KVH 1750 IMU has hands down the best performance of any IMU at its price point.”

- Ben Kinnaman, President & CEO of Greensea Systems, Inc.

Precise Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs)

Our IMUs offer a range of performance and affordability, so engineers can choose the option that best fits their navigation system design, application, and budget.

Adjustable Baud & Data Rates

KVH IMUs feature user-adjustable baud and data output rates so you can minimize latency by setting the rates for your navigation system that work best for your application.

Rapid Prototyping

The easy integration of KVH inertial solutions into your navigation system is even easier with the KVH Developer’s Kit, which also enables rapid prototyping.

“The use of the 1725 IMU has allowed us to get to market quickly and focus on developing other key areas of the system with value-add features for our end customers.”

- Dr. Steve Vozar, Chief Technology Officer & Co-founder of May Mobility

Accurate Inertial Navigation Systems (INS)

Navigation in GNSS-denied environments is challenging for lower-value platforms and systems. Our compact and affordable INS offer precise navigation even when GNSS is unavailable.

More Data Delivered Faster

With INS capable of data rates 10x faster than other systems, KVH’s sensor fusion algorithms extract more data than typical Kalman filters, giving you vital information faster.

Continuous Navigation

KVH’s commercial INS perform in the most demanding environments and provide continuous navigation where GNSS is not an option, such as subsea or underground applications.

“Integration into our INS couldn’t be simpler or more precise. The mechanical integration was easy, too.”

- Dr. Jeff Fayman, VP of Planning & Product Development, Geodetics, Inc.
