Navigation & Control

KVH’s high performance FOGs and IMUs play a vital role in closing the gap between the needs of the unmanned or autonomous system user, and the capabilities of the navigation and control solution. KVH IMUs capture highly accurate angular rate and acceleration data for navigation solutions used on aerial, ground, marine and subsurface unmanned systems.  

Users of unmanned and autonomous systems rely on the data from KVH sensors for navigation and control functions, and to produce accurate end products such as survey maps, imagery, 3-D representations of different environments, search grids for infrastructure inspection, and pipeline mapping and inspection. 

Critical Performance Factors

  • Excellent bias stability
  • High bandwidth
  • Very low noise
  • User-adjustable baud and data rates minimize latency

Market Applications

  • Remotely operated vehicles
  • Unmanned and autonomous land, air, surface marine, and subsurface systems
  • Robotics 
  • Driverless vehicles

Products and Solutions

When GPS is unavailable, blocked or jammed, inertial measurement units and navigation systems from KVH provide highly accurate navigation for unmanned systems such as remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).
