The IMU-KVH1750 is designed to be paired with NovAtel's OEM6® line of receivers. Commercially exportable, it is comprised of Fiber Optic Gyros (FOG) and Micro Electromechanical Systems (MEMS) accelerometers. FOGs offer exceptionally long life and stable performance compared to similar gyro technologies.

The IMU-KVH1750 offers tactical grade performance in a compact and rugged package with minimal power consumption. Paired with NovAtel's OEM6 receiver, the IMU-KVH1750 offers a fully integrated, tightly coupled GNSS and IMU system that delivers a continuous position, velocity and attitude solution.

Take advantage of TerraStar Correction Services to receive your choice of accuracy and performance, from decimetre to RTK-level positioning. For more demanding applications, Inertial Explorer® post-processing software from our Waypoint® Products Group can be used to post-process IMU.KVH1750 data to provide the system's highest level of accuracy.
