“Forging Inertial Synergy with Quartz MEMS and Fiber Optics” highlights how EMCORE hits high-performance benchmarks at low CSWaP (Cost, Size, Weight and Power), and that the flexibility and versatility of the Company’s products provide solutions for a very wide range of commercial and defense application environments from weapon systems to AHRS (Attitude Heading Reference Systems), UAVs (Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles), and more.
Inside GNSS explains how Quartz MEMS (QMEMS) technology is particularly well suited as a micromachining substrate for inertial sensors, resulting in a mature and proven product line with superior performance under environmental stress compared to legacy open-loop FOGs and ring-laser gyros (RLGs) as well as better performance under shock, vibration and temperature than competing options such as silicon MEMS.
Reviewing EMCORE’s FOG technology, Inside GNSS discusses how the Company’s patented
EMCORE is one of very few companies in the world capable of producing both gyros and accelerometers utilizing different technologies, according to Inside GNSS. The Company has demonstrated a new QMEMS gyroscope with the potential to reach high-end navigation grade in-run bias of 0.02°/hr and it has invested in upgrades to its advanced tactical accelerometer technology that now reach low single-digit micro-g navigation-grade.
Finally, “Forging Inertial Synergy with Quartz MEMS and Fiber Optics” explores the realm of hybrid solutions where the in-run performance of next-gen QMEMS Gyroscopes or VQAs (Vibrating Quartz Accelerometers) can be integrated with a precision FOG to deliver the best of both worlds: high performance, low cost and reduced size for emerging applications and markets.
“We would like to thank Inside GNSS for their comprehensive article on the synergy and value proposition of EMCORE’s unique combination of quartz MEMS and FOG inertial navigation solutions,” said
