KVH Ind. Inc. has received a U.S. patent for its technological breakthrough that enables the company to produce attitude, heading, and reference (AHRS)-grade fiber optic gyros (FOGs) at a fraction of the cost of competing products.

U.S. Patent no. 6,429,939, "DSP Signal Processing for Open Loop Fiber Optic Sensors," addresses KVH's method of using the power of modern digital electronics to improve the performance of the company's FOGs and make them suitable for a wide range of new applications ranging from precision-guided munitions to tactical navigation systems.

"Our DSP gyro and patents have clearly established KVH Industries as a technology leader and, potentially, a market leader in years to come," remarked Kalyan Ganesan, VP of engineering. "Digital signal processing enables us to achieve new levels of performance at costs significantly lower than competing ring laser and closed-loop gyros. By incorporating DSP technology into our FOGs, we can offer affordable, high-performance gyros to a wide variety of industries."
