Navigation & Control

High-performance, Compact FOG, RLG and MEMS-based systems for Navigation & Control

Design success into your next project with EMCORE’s proven precision fiber optic gyro (FOGs), Ring Laser Gyro (RLG) and quartz MEMS solutions for navigation and control. Our sensors offer easy integration with installation flexibility, and our Developer’s Kit enables rapid prototyping. EMCORE goes beyond simply meeting specifications to delivering the premium performance that meets the needs of your end-user.

Navigation in GNSS-denied environments is challenging for lower-value platforms and systems. Our compact and affordable navigation systems offer precise navigation even when GNSS is unavailable or jammed.

Key benefits to our customers are:

• Robust performance and survivability
• Highly resistant to shock and vibration
• Outstanding repeatability
• Superior CSWaP (Cost, Size, Weight, and Power)
• Affordable and easy to integrate
• Numerous interfaces supported as well as customized solutions
• High Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) rating

EMCORE’s products sense orientation changes, then accurately and reliably provide this data to navigation and control systems in diverse uncrewed and crewed applications. Available as housed and unhoused sensors in 1, 2, or 3-axis configurations, our sensors offer numerous installation and performance options for demanding navigation systems. Our hardworking gyros are at the core of EMCORE’s Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) and Inertial Navigation Systems (INS).

Our latest precision FOGs and FOG-based inertial systems include a Photonic Integrated Chip (PIC) for enhanced reliability. EMCORE’s exclusive PIC technology reimagines FOG technology by replacing individual fiber components with an innovative integrated planar optic chip. This results in FOGs and FOG-based systems that are reliable and robust.
