KVH’s new photonic gyroscopes integrated into high-precision inertial measurement units (IMUs) are designed for the growing driverless autonomous vehicle market and offer significant performance and cost advantages.
KVH KVH Industries, Inc. in Middletown on January 3, 2019, announced that photon chip technology was integrated into high-precision fiber optic gyroscopes (FOG) designed and manufactured by KVH, and therefore, deliveries of working prototypes of KVH Photonic Gyro IMU to leading automotive customers were launched last December. Developed by KVH engineers working in Tinley Park, Illinois and Middletown, Rhode Island, photon chip technology is designed to ensure centimeter-level localization accuracy, which, as instructed by automotive vehicle developers, is a prerequisite for creating unmanned vehicles.
“This is a revolutionary technology that we expect will transform our fiber-optic gyroscopes and inertial systems, and I am proud of the tremendous efforts of our incredible team of engineers,” said Martin Keats van Heiningen, CEO of KVH. “Our FOG and FOG-based high-precision IMU measuring units provide a higher Continue reading
Iridium (Iridium Communication Inc.) announced on May 7, 2019 that Iridium Certus was awarded the “Best Communication Platform” at the annual MSUA (Mobile Satellite Users Association) event in the satellite innovation section for 2019. Iridium Certus is a unique platform that allows you to develop and implement specialized broadband applications, while at the same time being the only truly global commercial broadband service in the world. The Top Connected Platform award is awarded less than four months after the service debuted in a commercial version on January 16, 2019.
Together with more than thirty global service providers and six partner companies manufacturing satellite terminals that combine maritime, land and air communications, Iridium Certus continues to see growing global distribution potential. This is the result of best-in-class service reliability, high L-band Continue reading
What is Inmarsat BGAN? A similar question can be asked by a user who comes close to the need to have an Internet connection almost anywhere in the world, regardless of the coverage of mobile operators. Indeed, at a certain stage of life, many are faced with the fact that the Internet should be everywhere – on travel, in a remote office, on the high seas, on an airplane, etc. In the modern world, a solution has long been found. Satellite access points and satellite terminals of various satellite operators solve the problem of communication in a global sense, and the potential client can only choose the appropriate provider. Below we will talk about Inmarsat BGAN, as one of the most popular solutions in the field of satellite Internet.
Satellite terminals BGAN
Inmarsat BGAN is the Inmarsat satellite global broadband network covering the planet almost completely, with the exception of the circumpolar regions. The exceptions are due to the fact that the Inmarsat satellites have geostationary orbits, located at the equator level. If you draw a tangent to the Continue reading
