OceanScan-MST Selects iXblue’s INS for New LAUVs

OceanScan-MST, Portugal-based manufacturer of the Lightweight Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (LAUV), has selected iXblue’s Phins Compact Series inertial navigation system for three new vehicles. 

OceanScan-MST opted for the Phins C3 to respond to the end-users’ demand for a higher position accuracy with a small size factor and limited budget, iXblue noted.

The Phins Compact Series provides position, true heading, attitude, speed, heave and depth for shallow and deep-water operations.

Phins C3 has a compact footprint, perfect to integrate in small form factor vehicle such as the LAUV. The ratio between performance, power, size and cost makes the Phins C3 a perfect INS solution,” said Alexandre Sousa from OceanScan-MST.

“This combined with a well written documentation and a very responsive iXblue support team makes OceanScan-MST work easier. We are happy to know that we can offer a very competitive navigation solution to the LAUV end-users with higher position accuracy demands.”
