Middletown, RI - KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) has received a new $2.7 million order for KVH's DSP-3100 fiber optic gyros (FOGs) from an international defense contractor to support weapon and optical stabilization in remote weapon stations. Delivery of this order will begin immediately and span the next several months.

"KVH's compact, rugged, and affordable fiber optic gyros offer end users and system integrators of all types another tremendously valuable benefit - versatility," says Jay Napoli, KVH's vice president of FOG/OEM sales. "Our FOGs equip our customers with a range of output options, our patented Digital Signal Processing (DSP) electronics design, and outstanding performance with regard to bias stability, scale factor linearity, turn-on to turn-on repeatability, and high bandwidth. As a result, these exceptionally low noise fiber optic gyros are ideal for a variety of demanding applications, including those that require precise measurement of rate and turning angle as well as the ability to withstand the shock of repeated, high-speed gunfire."
