EMCORE Navigation Program Highlights

        EMCORE designs and manufactures the world’s highest-performance
        Fiber Optic Gyro (FOG), Ring Laser Gyro (RLG), and MEMS inertial
        sensors and systems. Our closed-loop FOGs, Inertial Reference Units
        (IRU), Inertial Measurement Units (IMU), and FOG and RLG Inertial
        Navigation Systems (INS), combined with our world-leading Quartz
        MEMS Gyros, Accelerometers, IMUs, and GPS/INS products, deliver
        clear, continuously improving performance advantages over
        competing products.

        Our navigation solutions feature high bandwidth, high input rate,
        and low noise, combined with proprietary integrated Optoelectronics,
        Ring Laser Gyro, and Quartz MEMS technologies to provide precise,
        reliable stabilization, geolocation, guidance, navigation, and control
        in critical Aerospace & Defense, and Commercial applications.

        EMCORE’s Navigation & Inertial Sensing programs have received
        multiple U.S. patents and have been qualified for many key
        military programs.
