Ensuring Accuracy & Stability by Eliminating Motion

The accuracy of pointing and stabilization systems is essential to radar and lidar, recording and data-gathering systems, antennas, and optical systems. KVH fiber optic gyros (FOGs) and inertial solutions dramatically improve performance by reliably eliminating error-generating movement in line-of-sight devices or precision data-gathering systems.

High-performance, Compact & Affordable FOGs

Designed to meet both specifications and end users’ expectations, KVH’s innovative gyros deliver the precision required for every budget.

Resist Shock & Vibration

KVH FOGs resist vibration and shock by design, making them ideal for HD cameras and data-gathering systems that rely on stabilized platforms to remain rock-steady.

Application Agnostic

On land, at sea, or in the air, KVH FOGs deliver reliable performance for a range of applications with housed and unhoused sensors available in 1, 2, or 3-axis configurations.

KVH gyros and sensor systems are included in many of the most advanced autonomous driving programs in the world.

Precise Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs)

No GNSS? KVH’s high-performance IMUs combine 3 axes of precision FOGs with low noise accelerometers, to continually deliver accurate pointing & stabilization data.

FOG Performance at MEMS Prices

KVH inertial units offer a range of performance and affordability so designers can choose the right IMU for their system and their budget.

Easy to Install & Integrate

Our IMUs provide easy-to-integrate features including a Developer’s Kit that enables rapid prototyping to get your system up and running fast.

“Based on [Geodetics’] desire to address the needs of the commercial marketplace without export restrictions and without sacrificing performance, we chose the KVH family of IMUs.”

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