Ensuring Pointing Accuracy & Stability by Eliminating Motion

The accuracy of pointing and stabilization systems is essential to radar and LiDAR, recording and data-gathering systems, antennas, and optical systems. EMCORE’s gyroscopes and inertial solutions eliminate error-generating movement in line-of-sight devices and precision data-gathering systems.

Designed to meet both specifications and end users’ expectations, EMCORE’s Fiber Optic Gyro (FOGs), Ring Laser Gyro (RLG), and quartz MEMS solutions deliver the precision required for every budget.

Key advantages of EMCORE’s sensors:

• Resistance to shock and vibration
• High-performance, compact, and affordable with industry-leading in-run accuracy and ARW
• Outstanding repeatability and easy to integrate
• Superior CSWaP (Cost, Size, Weight, and Power)
• Numerous interfaces supported as well as customized solutions
• High Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) rating
• Application agnostic

EMCORE open-loop and closed-loop gyros resist vibration and shock by design, making them ideal for HD cameras and data-gathering systems that rely on stabilized platforms to remain rock-steady. On land, at sea, or in the air, EMCORE’s FOGs, IMU and INS deliver excellent performance for a range of applications with housed and unhoused sensors available in 1, 2, or 3-axes configurations.

EMCORE’s high-performance Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) with exclusive PIC technology combine tactical-grade photonic FOGs with high-end accelerometers to deliver accurate pointing and stabilization data, even when GNSS is unavailable. EMCORE’s IMUs offer a range of performance and affordability so designers can choose the right IMU for their system and budget. Our selection of IMUs provide easy-to-integrate features, including a Developers’ Kit that enables rapid prototyping to get your system up and running quickly.
