MCORE, a provider of advanced mixed-signal products that serve the aerospace & defense, communications, and sensing markets, announced that it has been awarded a long-term production contract valued at approximately $21 million over 10 years for custom MEMS gyroscopes designed for advanced, precision wellbore survey equipment used in the exploration and recovery of natural resources, including oil, gas, and water.
EMCORE has completed the development phase of this custom-designed MEMS-based gyroscope and is currently in full production. The gyroscope for this application is designed to ensure industry noise performance over the challenging environments experienced in downhole drilling. This capability is being provided exclusively for this key customer who deploys sensors on the most advanced, precision wellbore survey equipment available.
“This is an important contract award for our Navigation & Inertial Sensing business, and we are extremely pleased to be selected by this valued customer to supply custom gyroscopes for their system,” said Jeff Rittichier, President and CEO of EMCORE. ”It demonstrates the versatility of our MEMS inertial sensing technology to support advanced commercial and industrial applications,” added Mr. Rittichier.
