KVH PIC technology replaces individual fiber-optic components with an integrated planar optical chip to simplify production and increase reliability.

MIDDLETOWN, R.I. – KVH Industries Inc. in Middletown, R.I., is introducing the P-1750 and P-1725 inertial measurement units (IMUs) for unmanned aerial vehicles, unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs), remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), and platform stabilization.

The KVH P-series IMUs come in a proven compact IMU housing, and offer dynamic sensor performance for navigation, and environmental robustness in vibration and shock capability.

KVH's PIC technology features an integrated planar optical chip that replaces individual fiber-optic components to simplify production and increase reliability.

KVH P-series IMUs are designed to deliver an order of magnitude better drift and noise performance than prior products and offer more than 10 times higher accuracy than less expensive micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) inertial measurement units.
