KVH Industries declared that it has accepted new purchase orders over $2.5M from an international customer belonging to the military, for its precision DSP-3000 fiber optic gyros (FOGs) employed for optimized remote weapon stations (RWS). Market availability of these products will be accomplished in two years.
KVH's vice president of FOG and OEM sales, Jay Napoli says that RWS is of much significance in promoting crew safety with advanced weapon accuracy, supporting combat operations abroad. The FOGs of KVH are considered to be the suitable sensors for the RWS manufacturers that assist the U.S. and its subsidiary military forces. The economic DSP-3000 FOG offers excellent persistence regarding shock, vibration, and acceleration, also providing better precision and increased reliability, thereby ensuring optimal RWS performance. KVH's FOGs are appropriate for a range of regulation and stabilization requirements in the commercial markets and the military.
RWS facilitates artillerymen to aim, activate, and trigger a weapon that has been installed over a vehicle, where they can remain safe inside the vehicle while continuing the operation, instead of operating at turret positions where they are subjected to hostile firing. KVH's DSP-3000 FOGs provide weapon recoil control and accurate optical stabilization for RWS units whilst making sure the weapon continues to remain on target whether the vehicle is sedentary or mobile.
KVH's sensor systems and fiber optic guidance are employed for stabilization of a series of commercial and military forces, autonomous vehicle, navigation, and precision guidance applications. These include integration of IMU, GPS/INS, and AHRS, platform stabilization, and antenna/radar/optics stabilization.
