ADVANCED SYSTEMS
EMCORE’s long standing leadership in development of highly-accurate defense
and military grade fiber optic components and systems is what makes the EMP1.2K a clear choice when selecting solid-state precision gyroscope components.
With fully integrated optics and electronics, the EMP-1.2K is a superior device
in regards to weight and form-factor for navigational applications up to 1,200
meters. It features advanced optics and digital signal processing (DSP) for much
higher accuracy, lower noise and greater efficiency. The integrated DSP also
improves optical drift stability, higher linearity and greater environmental flexibility. Additionally, the unit can be calibrated internally for better thermal effect.
Separation of the electronics from the FOG’s sensing coil assembly provides widest
variety of installation flexibility.
Suitable for Demanding Applications
The EMP-1.2K’s low drift and noise makes this gyro ideal for demanding applications such as:
„„ Precision Navigation (1 mile/hr without GPS)
„„ Fast, Precise Gyrocompassing to 1 milliradian
„„ Low noise line-of-sight stabilization and control
