DSP-1750 Fiber Optic Gyro (FOG) (Non-ITAR)

Ultra-compact Single- or Dual-axis FOGs

EMCORE takes fiber optic gyro (FOG) technology to a new level of performance with the DSP-1750, the world’s smallest high-accuracy FOG. Available in both single- and dual-axis configurations, the DSP-1750 is designed for a wide range of precision navigation, stabilization, and pointing applications where low noise and high performance across the entire range of operating temperatures are critical. Ideal applications include long-range optical and sensor systems, gimbals, tactical missiles, autonomous vehicle navigation, and the stabilization of virtually all types of commercial equipment platforms.
