The 1725 IM and the 1775 IMU, released earlier this year, are designed to integrate into demanding stabilization, pointing and navigation applications.

These advanced sensors complement KVH’s 1750 IMU, and are said to create a complete range of choices for advanced 6-degrees-of-freedom (DOF) sensors with enhanced performance, according to a news release. All three sensors use the E•Core® ThinFiber™ technology of KVH’s DSP-1750 fiber optic gyro (FOG).

“With these three products, system designers and integrators now have a high performance solution for every application – ranging from manned and unmanned commercial and defense platforms, optical equipment stabilization systems, and pipeline inspection equipment, to autonomous vehicle control and navigation,” says Jay Napoli, KVH’s vice president of FOG/OEM sales, according to a news release.

The 1725 IMU has a flexible user interface, along with user programmable data output rates from 1 to 1000 Hz. It is said to deliver optimal FOB performance and stability at a competitive price point.

The 1775 IMU is said to offer easy integration for designers of high-level inertial navigation, guidance or stabilization systems, and also features a flexible interface. This IMU provides user-programmable data output rates from 1 to 5000 Hz, and includes three axes of magnetometers for automatic gyro bias compensation even in the presence of strong magnetic fields. The 1775 IMU is designed for sophisticated systems and applications where very high bandwidth, low latency, and extreme stability are critical, according to the release.
