EMCORE Awarded Contract for SDI170 IMUs for Precision-Guided Munitions by Major International Weapons Systems Manufacturer
EMCORE’s SDI170 tactical grade MEMS IMU is designed as a form, fit, and function compatible replacement for a competitor’s legacy IMU, but with superior overall performance, versatility, and a significantly higher MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure) rating over ruggedized environments. For this application, EMCORE’s SDI170 will be incorporated into a guidance kit that enhances the accuracy of general-purpose munitions, converting them into smart weapon systems to increase their ability to strike both static and mobile targets with high precision.
“We are extremely pleased to be awarded this contract to supply our high-performance SDI170 IMU for this precision-guided munitions system,” said
