KVH Industries Inc. has introduced the Series 1750 inertial measurement unit (IMU), a 6° of freedom sensor that integrates into stabilization, pointing and navigation applications.

It combines the E•Core ThinFiber technology of the company’s DSP-1750 fiber optic gyro with low-noise, solid-state microelectromechanical systems accelerometers to create a commercial off-the-shelf IMU. It delivers high precision from a small form factor, making it suitable for applications where space is limited, such as unmanned and autonomous systems.

The device incorporates three axes of the DSP-1750 with advanced accelerometer technology.

Applications range from stabilization and pointing of high-speed gimbals, cameras and lasers to autonomous vehicle control and navigation. Features include an RS-422 interface with user-programmable data outputs.

The unit provides accurate 6° of freedom angular rate and acceleration data and delivers bias stability of <0.05°/h in a cylindrical package that measures 89 × 74 mm and weighs <0.6 kg. The compact package and mounting features enable easy drop-in replacement to enhance performance and reduce cost in retrofit applications. The unit offers good shock, vibration and thermal performance.
