KVH’s IMUs provide reliable precision pointing for aerostats (moored balloons) used for surveillance and intelligence gathering.

Positioning & Georeferencing

alt text

Systems operating underwater or underground rely on precision inertial navigation and positioning provided by KVH IMUs.

Navigation & Control

alt text

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

Navigation & Control

alt text

Inertial navigation relies on initial position, velocity, and attitude to determine position. It’s used for applications such as autonomous aerial refueling, autonomous landing systems, and collision avoidance.
