EMCORE has developed the EN-300 Precision Fiber Optic Inertial Measurement/Navigation Unit as a higher accuracy inertial system to be form, fit and function compatible with a legacy equivalent, but with better performance needed for GPS denied navigation, precise targeting and line-of-sight stabilization
The EMCORE EN-300 is a state-of-the-art design incorporating EMCORE’s proprietary integrated optics devices to enhance performance, providing up to five times better performance than competing systems. The internal signal processing provides full stand-alone or aided navigation, and as an option can provide standard inertial measurement unit (IMU) delta velocity and delta theta.
The EMCORE EN-300 provides lower noise and greater stability than competing IMUs. With the option of full navigation capability including coning and skulling compensation and sophisticated Kalman filtering, the unit is also able to statically find North to less than one degree through gyrocompassing.
