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’s fiber optic gyros (FOGs) and inertial solutions with our exclusive PIC technology dramatically improve performance by reliability eliminating error-generating movement in line-of-sight devices or precision data-gathering systems.
High-performance, Compact & Affordable FOGs with PIC Technology
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.
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)
KVH’s new high-performance P-series IMUs with exclusive PIC technology combine precision photonic FOGs with high-end accelerometers to deliver accurate point and stabilization data, even when GNSS is unavailable.
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.
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.
Positioning & Georeferencing
The high data processing abilities and proven accuracy of KVH FOGs and inertial systems make them ideal for precision positioning and imaging systems that require stabilized platforms.
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.
