The measurement system provides resolution to a nanometer of positional change. With its stable design, small size, and low power consumption, the KD-5100 has a package size of 2 by 2.12 by 0.75 inches thick for applications where space is a limiting factor.

It is manufactured to MIL-H-38534, with MIL-SPEC components used throughout the electronics module wherever possible. The KD-5100 features rugged construction, with a mean time between failures of better than 238,000 hours in a space flight environment and 55,000 hours in a tactical environment.

Kaman also offers the DIT-5200, a commercial version of the KD-5100 for applications for image stabilization where mil-spec requirements, size, weight and power consumption are not critical.
