High-performance, Compact FOGs and FOG-based systems with PIC Technology

Design success into your next project with EMCORE’s proven precision fiber optic gyroscopes (FOGs) and FOG-based solutions. 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

EMCORE’s FOGs 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 FOG-based 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 with PIC Inside™ that are reliable and robust.
