• High Grade Gyrocompasses and Inertial Systems
iXBlue’s inertial navigation products are amongst the most
accurate and reliable on the market: the OCTANS gyrocompass, the
PHINS inertial navigation system and the very high performance military
grade MARINS have been selected by the most prestigious navies to
be the core of their navigation system. All our inertial products
have demonstrated their reliability and ability to meet demanding
military navigation requirements for all surface vessel requirements.
• ECDIS/WECDIS GIS Systems
GECDIS products are IMO ECDIS and WECDIS STANAG navigation and surveillance
systems. They are able to display and process a broad range of critical
information from Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) or Digital
Nautical Charts (DNC) as well as real time navigation and situation
surveillance sensor data.
• Advanced Navigation Systems
NetANS collects, controls and performs the processing of all navigation
sensors to provide the best navigation solution to the navigator
and combat system operator.
