Ixsea takes its place as a key player in the defense industry at Euronaval 2008, to be held at Paris-Le Bourget, France, from 27 to 31 October, with its state-of-the-art Fiber Optic Gyroscope (FOG) technology for naval applications.
Designed to meet the demands of the navy for more accurate INS, Marins is a state-of-the-art naval inertial navigation system based on the company's solid state FOG technology. Currently the US DoD is investing millions of dollars to develop military grade inertial systems based on FOG technology for its navy. However, Ixsea is already producing systems with this technology, such as Marins.
Earlier this year, Ixsea delivered several Marins to the Dutch based company, Imtech Marine & Offshore. These systems, perfect for naval applications, will be used on Ocean Patrol Vessels.
Ixsea provides full route survey systems, consisting of a full suite of sensors (sonars, multibeam echosounder, gradiometer and an acoustic position system) as well as software which allows survey management, display and interpretation of all collected data.
Recently, the Belgian Navy commissioned such a portable route survey system to be used on its fleet of mine-hunters.
Recently launched, Gradiomagis is a truly omnidirectional gradiometer designed to map unexploded ordnance or other metallic objects. Its real-time magnetic gradient computation allows for superior spatial resolution and sensitivity to detection features.
Sodena WECDIS PC-based GIS systems are ECDIS compliant and IEC 60945 standard hardware solutions. The company can integrate all standard and non-standard devices into a single system such as waterproof terminals and ruggedized PCs.
