Flight Stabilization & Navigation IMUs for Multistage Space Launch Vehicles

EMCORE has been awarded two contracts following the company's acquisition of the L3Harris Space and Navigation business By Mike Ball / 09 May 2022

EMCORE SDC500 MEMS IMUEMCORE Corporation has confirmed that it has been awarded new contracts for two programs for space launch vehicles known as the Booster Rate Gyro (BoRG) and Tri-Axial Inertial Measurement Unit (TAIMU) programs. The agreements have resulted from EMCORE’s acquisition of the L3Harris Space and Navigation business.

The BoRG program award is a contract valued at over $12 million for the production of IMUs used for flight stabilization of the booster stage of a multistage launch system. The TAIMU program award is a development contract for the design and qualification of IMUs deployed for navigation and flight control of the upper stage of a multistage launch system. Pending successful demonstration of required capability and quality, EMCORE expects to be awarded follow-on production contracts for TAIMU within the next 12 months.

Albert Lu, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Aerospace and Defense at EMCORE, commented: “We are honored to supply our highest-grade inertial navigation equipment for these critical space launch vehicle programs. We look to further our close partnership with L3Harris through successful on-time deliveries for both the BoRG and TAIMU programs.”
