KVH Industries... More FOG Coming In...

KVH has deubted their new CG-5100 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), a low drift, solid state, FOG-based commercial off the shelf (COTS) solution, well-suited for applications that might already have GPS, but need a full-function IMU capability. The product is also ideal for critical sensing, stabilization, navigation, and autonomous vehicle applications thanks to its precision position, velocity, and attitude sensing and measurement capabilities.

Through the seamless integration of two reliable navigation components — highly accurate KVH fiber optic gyros (FOGs) and industry-proven MEMS accelerometers — the CG-5100 offers a groundbreaking low-cost, small form factor solution for inertial measurement. This strap-down inertial subsystem offers:
  • Outstanding reliability and accurate
  • 6-degrees-of-freedom measurement
  • Excellent performance by employing proprietary algorithms to a fully combined digital gyro and accelerometer output, enabling the system to characterize and correct for the effects of temperature and misalignment
  • Convenient and easy-to-adapt output in a fully digital, user-selectable RS-232/RS-422 format
  • Stand alone operation, as well as, integration with existing GPS solutions
