Ring Laser & Fiber Optic Gyro INS




        EMCORE’s line of INS now includes the advanced Ring Laser Gyro-based INS products of the former L3Harris Space & Navigation,
        which has supplied the highest performance, reliability, and quality pointing and position capability for land navigation systems.
        This greatly expands EMCORE’s INS product line which also includes the EMCORE-Orion  series FOG INS.
                                                                               TM

        Position & Navigation Unit, Universal Position & Navigation Unit (PNU / UPNU)
        The PNU / UPNU provides the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) and High-Mobility Artil-
        lery Rocket System (HIMARS) programs with the highest performance, reliability and quality
        pointing and position capability, paving the way for the future direction of the land navigation
        systems. Utilizing advanced sensors, electronics, software, and aiding (GPS and odometer), the
        PNU / UPNU family delivers precisely what the Army of tomorrow needs — a system designed to
        remain operationally effective and affordable to support well into the future.

        Dynamic Reference Unit-Hybrid Replacement (DRU-H-R)
        The DRU-H-R is an advanced precision delivery subsystem that provides accurate vehicle position
        and attitude data and operates on Paladin and Firefinder, both playing critical roles in support-
        ing U.S. ground forces in all phases of active combat operations. The EMCORE S&N DRU-H-R
        design upgraded system performance by using high accuracy, combat-proven inertial sensors
        currently fielded on the MLRS and HIMARS weapon systems, and the IPADS survey system.

        EMCORE-Orion  Series EN-1000/2000 Micro Inertial Navigation Systems
        The EMCORE-Orion  series EN-1000/2000, high-precision micro INS can gyrocompass from
                       TM
        approximately 0.8 to 1.2 milliradian depending on the model in environments where GPS is un-
        available or denied. EMCORE’s advanced FOG INS technology has enabled the units to provide
        performance comparable to traditional RLG INS with 1/3 the SWaP. They are designed to provide
        customers the flexibility to choose the performance level tailored to their application. The EN-
        1000/2000 are also capable of being aided by an external GPS for additional flexibility.
