KVH Industries Inc. of Middletown, R.I., has received a $2.6 million follow-on order for its TG-6000 fiber optic gyro-based inertial measurement units, which will be used in the US Navy’s MK54 torpedoes. The devices measure both rate and acceleration in three axes, a capacity that is important for the navigation of a torpedo or other platforms. The order represents the first of three options associated with the original contract, which was signed in 2005. Shipments for this option will extend into 2008.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
