EMP-1 Lithium-Niobate Fiber Optic Gyroscopes
A Family of Fiber Optic Gyroscopes
EMCORE’s long standing leadership in development of highly-accurate defense
and military grade fiber optic components and systems is what makes the EMP-1
a clear choice when selecting solid-state precision gyroscope components. With
fully integrated optics and electronics, the EMP-1 is a superior device in regards to
weight and form-factor. 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 and has both digital and analog outputs, accommodating the
widest variety of installation parameters.
