Versatile, Highly Accurate Photonic FOG-based IMU for Demanding Autonomous and Manned Applications
The new TAC-450-340 inertial measurement unit (IMU) is a versatile, high-performance, non-ITAR IMU featuring photonic integrated chip (PIC) technology for robust performance and survivability. It also offers inertial-grade MEMS accelerometers for excellent performance for autonomous and manned platforms. The TAC-450-340 IMU integrates easily into the most demanding applications including autonomous vehicle navigation and positioning; unmanned aerial surveillance, surveying and mapping; humanoid robots; and oil and gas pipeline inspection equipment.
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-450-340 IMU provides the safe, accurate performance autonomous platforms demand.
EMCORE’s Dual Core DSP electronics with ARM processor requires less power for extended product life and offers higher speed with integrated multi-channel processing. Low-loss optical circuits use less light for greater efficiency.
