Affordable, Robust Photonic FOG-based IMU with High-Performance in Challenging Stabilization and Navigation Applications
The new TAC-450-320 inertial measurement unit (IMU) is a dependable, tactical-grade, non-ITAR inertial system that’s also affordable. It features EMCORE’s exclusive photonic integrated chip (PIC) technology for robust performance and survivability and offers inertial-grade MEMS accelerometers for outstanding FOG-based inertial performance as affordable as MEMS alternatives. The TAC-450-320 IMU is ideal for autonomous and unmanned commercial and defense applications, mobile mapping and surveying systems, targeting and pointing systems, and guidance and positioning.
Photonic Integrated Chip Technology
EMCORE’s photonic integrated chip (PIC) technology reimagines FOG technology by replacing individual fiber components with an innovative integrated planar optic chip. This results in a FOG with PIC Inside™ that’s reliable and robust. With three of these integrated photonic gyros at its core, the TAC-450-320 IMU provides the safe, accurate performance autonomous platforms demand.
EMCORE’s Dual Core DSP electronics with ARM processor require less power for extended product life and offer higher speed with integrated multi-channel processing. Low-loss optical circuits use less light for greater efficiency.
