DGA Selects iXblue’s Gaps for Mine Warfare Applications

The French General Directorate of Armament for Technical Naval Applications (DGA/TN) has selected iXblue’s Gaps acoustic positioning system for its Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) positioning and monitoring applications.

The choice of Gaps by the DGA/TN, which is the reference in France in the area of mine warfare, is a clear mark of the confidence placed in our underwater positioning technology”, said Hubert Pelletier, head of the Acoustics Division of iXblue. “This contract, which further strengthens a longstanding working relationship with the DGA/TN, is testimony to the quality and reliability of our Gaps acoustic positioning system for strategic military applications such as mine warfare.”

Incorporating iXblue’s Phins inertial navigation system, the Gaps system is equipped with a pre-calibrated USBL (Ultra Short Base Line) antenna and offers high-precision geo-referenced positioning performance.

Gaps can be installed on different types of platforms (hulls of ships, hoisting systems, poles, buoys, surface drones).
