Overview

The DSP-1750 Fiber Optic Gyro from KVH Industries contains the company’s new 170-micron ECore ThinFiber. Although an extremely small D-shaped optical fiber, it combines high bandwidth with very low noise.

Compared to the company’s initial DSP-1500, angle random walk one generation better and input rates are five times faster. The unit also contains bias stability, which was formerly only included in closed-loop fiber optic and ring-laser gyros.

The DSP-1750 integrates smoothly into customer systems having constraints for space and weight, because the optical sensor and control electronics are separate. Thus, the sensor can be built into the sensitive axis and the control circuit cards can be put in another place.

Configurations are offered with digital or analog outputs and single- and dual-axes. The product is conceived for a broad range of stabilization, precision navigation and pointing applications. Specific applications include gimbals, long-range optical and sensor systems, tactical missiles, stabilization of equipment and weapons as well as autonomous vehicle navigation.

  • ECore ThinFiber provides extreme precision in very compact size
  • Angle random walk
  • Superior bias stability
  • Single- and dual-axis configurations; digital or analog outputs
  • Magnetically shielded option
  • Ideal for applications with size and weight restrictions
