Enabling Precision Positioning for Your Mobile Platforms
Precision positioning and imaging systems rely on gyro-stabilized platforms to eliminate unwanted movement. Engineers choose KVH’s fiber optic gyros (FOGs) and integrated inertial systems precisely because they deliver high data processing abilities and proven accuracy.
High-performance, Compact, Affordable FOGs
KVH gyros offer performance and reliability in a solid-state solution that’s very low noise with high bandwidth to meet data processing needs.
Flexible, Multi-axis Design
Available in multiple variants including housed and unhoused, as well as 1, 2, or 3-axes of gyros, KVH FOGs deliver the high performance you need in demanding environments.
Affordable & Reliable
KVH FOGs excel at making dependable high performance affordable, so they’re ideal replacements for solutions that either don’t deliver the performance, or don’t fit the budget.
“Integration into our INS couldn’t be simpler or more precise. The mechanical integration was easy, too.”- Ben Kinnaman, President & CEO of Greensea Systems, Inc.
Precise Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs)
KVH IMUs combine three high-performance KVH photonic FOGs with low-noise MEMS accelerometers. These lightweight, compact systems deliver accurate navigation with and without GNSS.
Best Shock Performance
KVH inertial units have outstanding resistance to shock and vibration, as well as temperature extremes. That’s why KVH IMUs run strong and hard in the harshest environments.
High Input Rate & Baud Rate
Our IMUs offer user-adjustable baud rates and user-friendly programmable data output rates, allowing you to adjust the performance according to your application’s needs.
“The 1725 IMU has allowed us to have very good dead reckoning, decreasing the heavy lifting in computing required by the rest of the localization system.”- Dr. Steve Vozar, Chief Technology Officer & Co-founder of May Mobility
Accurate Inertial Navigation Systems (INS)
KVH INS solutions offer high accuracy plus an embedded GNSS. When GNSS isn’t available, these navigation systems access inertial data for accurate navigation until GNSS returns.
KVH INS are perfect for autonomous, unmanned, and manned platforms that require fast update rates with high bandwidth to close the loop quickly for precise navigation and control.
The Smarter INS Solution
The advanced sensor fusion algorithms of KVH INS result in data rates up to 10x faster than competing systems.
“We are pleased to feature KVH technology in our Tactical Series and give our customers the option of utilizing a FOG-based IMU for higher precision performance to support a wide range of demanding applications."- Jakub Maslikowski, Director of Sales and Marketing, VectorNav
KVH’s versatile FOGs and inertial systems deliver the precision, performance, durability, and high bandwidth data processing critical to a wide range of applications on mobile platforms.
Pointing & Stabilization
KVH FOGs and IMUs dramatically improve pointing and stabilization performance by eliminating error-generating movement in line-of-sight devices and precision data-gathering systems.
Navigation & Control
By capturing highly accurate angular rate and acceleration data, KVH FOGs and FOG-based inertial systems are ideal for navigation and control applications in the air, on land, and at sea.
