Guiding Intelligent Systems with Superior Applications
KVH FOG-based inertial systems with KVH’s exclusive PIC technology provide superior reliability, flexibility and easy integration that enable customers’ systems to operate at new levels of performance and productivity.
Navigation & Control
KVH FOGs, new P-series IMUs, and our INS systems are ideal for aerial, ground, and marine navigation and control applications.
Positioning & Georeferencing
The high data processing ability and accuracy of KVH FOGs, new P-series IMUs, and our INS systems make them ideal for precision pointing systems that need stabilized platforms.
Pointing & Stabilization
KVH FOGs and IMUs with PIC technology improve pointing and stabilization performance by removing error-generating movement in line-of-sight devices and data-gathering systems.
Discover the Breadth of Applications Supported by KVH
The scientists of the BLAST project developed a sub-orbital observatory to observe star formation and evolution, and they used KVH’s precision fiber optic gyro (FOG) to keep their system pointed in the right direction.
Industrial robots are ideal for materials handling and inventory management. To know where they are in the world, many industrial robots’ owners turn to KVH precision fiber optic gyros or inertial systems.
KVH’s IMUs provide reliable precision pointing for aerostats (moored balloons) used for surveillance and intelligence gathering.
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.
Photonic Chip Technology-based Inertial Systems
Disruptive Technology for Safe, Precise Autonomous Navigation
KVH’s new photonic integrated chip (PIC) technology reimagines FOG technology by replacing individual fiber components with an innovative integrated planar optic chip. This results in a FOG that’s even more reliable and delivers superior repeatability unit-to-unit, essential for the safe, accurate performance of autonomous platforms.Read the eBook
