KVH makes high-performance gyros and inertial systems for navigation, stabilization, positioning, orientation, pointing and, guidance systems for autonomous, unmanned, and manned platforms. KVH also designs and manufactures its tactical navigation systems, TACNAV™. More than 22,000 military vehicles are equipped with KVH’s field-proven family of tactical navigation systems. In addition, KVH manufactures satellite communications equipment, producing the TracPhone line of satellite antenna systems. Headquartered in the USA, KVH’s fiber optic gyro (FOG)-based sensors are integrated into a broad range of demanding autonomous and manned commercial and military applications. KVH’s field-proven high-performance sensors are application-agnostic, performing in all environments and weather conditions. The sensors are solid-state, making them highly resistant to shock and vibration. KVH introduced the first photonics-based gyro in 2019, and it’s the heart of the new P-series IMUs. Using photonic chip technology, the P-1775 IMU, P-1750 IMU, and P-1725 IMU are unique inertial systems that have an integrated planar optical chip that replaces individual fiber optic components. KVH gyros and inertial systems with the PIC Inside™ are designed to deliver improved reliability and repeatability, unit to unit. In addition, the new P-series IMUs also have integrated high-performance accelerometers to further enhance performance. The P-series IMUs feature a flexible, modular design for easy integration. KVH’s groundbreaking photonic chip technology overcomes numerous technological obstacles to meet the demanding requirements for autonomous platforms, including incorporating complex elements onto a chip to maintain or improve performance as well as simplify production. The photonic chip technology also provides consistent components and manufacturing to ensure consistent performance and reliability, enabling the mass-production of precision inertial systems. KVH plans to continue enhancing its product line of FOGs, and INS with the PIC technology in the coming months.
