KVH Receives $4 Million Fiber Optic Gyro Order from Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace
CROWS are designed to offer improved protection capabilities and support for the U.S. Army’s vehicle program. CROWS can be mounted on a wide range of vehicles and provide troops with target acquisition and engagement capabilities from safer distances. CROWS also feature programmable target reference points for multiple locations, programmable sector surveillance scanning, automatic target ballistic lead, automatic target tracking, and programmable no-fire zones.
The KDA-produced CROWS will employ KVH’s DSP-3100 FOGs to provide precise stabilization and weapon recoil control while ensuring that the weapon stays on target whether the vehicle is stationary or on the move.
“KVH’s fiber optic gyros provide the high level of performance and reliability needed for these critical systems used by U.S. and allied militaries,” says
With its all-fiber design and patented Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology, KVH’s DSP-3100 FOG offers high reliability, superior accuracy and performance, and exceptional vibration, shock, and acceleration survivability at an affordable cost. KVH has supplied FOGs to KDA for CROWS programs in past years.
