The Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) has recently signed a contract with navigation company iXblue for up to 172 FOG based Quadrans Gyrocompasses, to be delivered over the span of four years, and equip the Swedish Navy’s fleet of high speed craft, mainly the CB90. Built around the Fibre-Optic Gyroscope technology pioneered by iXblue, the Quadrans gyrocompasses are solid-state and strap-down systems that provide highly accurate heading and attitude data, making them perfectly suited for high performance at high speeds and in challenging environments such as GNSS denied settings. Compact, lightweight and with low power consumption, the Quadrans Gyrocompasses are easy to install on small craft while their open architecture guarantees seamless interfacing with all major GNSS systems and their-party navigation software.
