Navigation & Control

Enabling Precision Positioning & Georeferencing Your Mobile Platforms

Precision positioning and imaging systems rely on gyro-stabilized platforms to eliminate unwanted movement. EMCORE’s fiber optic gyro (FOG), Ring Laser Gyro (RLG) and quartz MEMS solutions deliver high data processing capability, survivability, and accuracy with very low noise and high bandwidth to meet data processing needs.

EMCORE’s sensors provide:

• Flexible, multi-axis designs
• Affordability and durability
• High input rate and baud rate

Available in multiple variants, including housed and unhoused and 1, 2, or 3-axis configurations, EMCORE’s products deliver high performance in demanding environments. EMCORE’s inertial navigation systems (INS), the GEO-FOG 3D and 3D Dual are FOG-based INS capable of data rates 10X faster than competing systems. The GEO-FOG’s sensor fusion algorithms extract more data than typical Kalman filters, giving you more vital information faster. Our commercial INS are non-ITAR, perform in the most demanding environments, and provide continuous data where GNSS is not an option, such as underground or subsea applications.

Our FOG-based IMUs combine high-performance FOGs with high-end inertial-grade accelerometers. These precise, compact systems deliver accurate data with and without GNSS to keep your system performing accurately in all environments. Our IMUs offer user-adjustable baud rates, enabling you to adjust the performance according to your system’s needs. EMCORE’s gyros and FOG-based IMUs and INS are perfect for autonomous, unmanned, and manned platforms requiring fast update rates and high bandwidth to close the loop quickly for precise location data and control.

EMCORE’s products excel at Positioning & Georeferencing making them ideal high-performance, affordable replacements for solutions that don’t deliver the performance or fit the budget.
