KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) announced that it has received a new $1m order for its CNS-5000, a self-contained navigation system that combines fiber optic gyro (FOG)-based inertial measurement technology from KVH with global positioning system (GPS) technology from NovAtel. This navigation solution provides the precise position and orientation of a host platform on a continuous basis, even during periods where GPS signals are blocked by natural or man-made obstructions or conditions.
“This latest order, following on the heels of another $900,000 order a month ago, is evidence of the rapid acceptance of the CNS-5000 and the demand for a self-contained, commercial navigation solution,” said Dan Conway, KVH’s vice president of business development. “The CNS-5000’s precision navigation and easy integration with a wide range of other systems make it an ideal solution for demanding commercial applications, such as dynamic surveying, precision agriculture, container terminal management, and autonomous vehicle navigation.”
The CNS-5000 offers integration of KVH’s FOG-based IMU with NovAtel’s OEMV GPS precision receiver technology. The coupling of these technologies within the CNS-5000 optimizes the raw GPS and IMU data, delivering position data accurate to one inch along with superior velocity and attitude information. Composed entirely of commercial components and designed to meet COTS requirements, the CNS-5000 also minimizes the operational complexities for customers whose products cross international boundaries.
