MIDDLETOWN, RI  - KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) announced today that it has received a $7.6 million order for its single-axis fiber optic gyros (FOGs) from an international defense contractor to support weapon and optical stabilization in remote weapon stations for the U.S. military. Delivery of this order will begin immediately and continue into 2013.

"KVH's compact, rugged, and affordable fiber optic gyros are extremely versatile," says Jay Napoli, KVH's vice president of FOG/OEM sales. "End users and system integrators choose KVH FOGs for their range of output options, 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. These exceptionally low noise FOGs are ideal for 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."
