Teledyne Gavia, manufacturer of the Gavia autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), has released a new navigation module that incorporates iXblue‘s new Phins Compact C3 with a Teledyne RDI 1200 kHz Workhorse.
The Phins Compact C3 is the second inertial navigation system from iXblue that Teledyne Gavia has integrated into the Gavia AUV.
According to Teledyne, equipping the Gavia with the Phins Compact C3 and TRDI‘s Workhorse DVL offers a 0.3% CEP50 Distance Travelled navigation accuracy in a very compact module that lowers the weight and size of the vehicle from previous navigation options.
“Teledyne Gavia has had great success with the iXblue C5, so the company is excited to extend the portfolio of iXblue technology available on the Offshore Surveyor with the introduction of the Phins Compact C3,” the company said.
The Gavia AUV can be utilized in geophysical surveys, cable and pipeline surveys, environmental surveys, and under ice surveys, as well as mine countermeasures (MCM), rapid environmental assessment (REA), and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) surveys.
