EMCORE-OrionTM Series Inertial Measurement Units (IMU)*

The EMCORE-OrionTM EN-1000i/2000i Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) have been developed primarily for high-precision aerospace and defense applications. EMCORE’s advanced technology has enabled the units to provide ultra-high-performance comparable or exceeding competing systems at 1/3 the Size, Weight and Power (SWaP).

The EMCORE-OrionTM series is a state-of-the-art, fiber optic gyro-based IMU and Inertial Navigation System (INS) platform incorporating EMCORE’s proprietary integrated optics devices that enhance performance and reliability at lower cost than competing systems.

The EMCORE-OrionTM EN-1000i/2000i IMU design provides lower noise and greater stability than competitor IMUs at a significantly lower volume. The low SWaP makes it an ideal inertial navigation platform for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs), Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs), manned aircraft, rotorcraft, dismounted soldier applications and more. The Model EN-1000i is non-ITAR controlled.
