iXBlue Introduces Fifth-Generation OCTANS

iXBlue is unveiling the fifth-generation OCTANS, an all-in-one gyrocompass and motion sensor (attitude and heading reference system, AHRS) and brings in new and enhanced features, including IMO/ IMO-HSC certification and inertial navigation system (INS) product upgrade-path.

The fifth-generation OCTANS gives customers more product variant choices, expanding the surface and subsea product range. OCTANS is built on iXBlue’s strap-down fiber-optic gyroscope (FOG) technology.

The fifth-generation OCTANS provides real-time output for roll, pitch, true heading, heave, as well as acceleration and rate of turn, under challenging environments without the need for GPS/GNSS, the company explained.

The extended iXBlue surface and subsea navigation  product range includes: QUADRANS, OCTANS and INS Product upgrade, HYDRINS, PHINS, and MARINS Series for surface/sub navigation and OCTANS Nano, OCTANS 3000, Rovins and PHINS 6000 for subsea.

iXBlue pointed out that OCTANS targets diverse civil and defense marine applications including survey (MBES/Lidar), offshore Oil&Gas, dynamic positioning (DP), motion monitoring, platform stabilization, and safe robust navigation in GPS-absent applications such as tunneling and defense.
