Compact fiber-optic gyro

  • 12-Feb-2010 08:44 EST

KVH’s DSP-1500 fiber-optic gyro features a dual-axis configuration with a 1.5-in-diameter sensing element and a tethered connection to power, processing, and channel electronics boards. The lightweight unit can be integrated within various applications including gimbaled optical systems. By measuring angular rates in two axes simultaneously, the device provides enhanced precision that is critical for a diverse suite of applications. The optical sensors are 0.8 in tall, weigh 0.09 lb, and can be installed up to 12 in away from the power and processing electronics. Digital signal processing offers performance improvements in critical areas such as bias stability, scale factor linearity, and high bandwidth.
