EMCORE selected to deliver fiber optic gyroscope modules

ALHAMBRA, Calif. Raytheon officials selected EMCORE Corp. to deliver high-performance Fiber Optic Gyroscope (FOG) modules for use in airborne optical targeting systems. The four-year contract is worth approximately over $18 million.

The FOG modules to be delivered are EMCORE’s tethered gyros with separate electronics and sensor modules to accommodate the a variety of installation parameters.
