Vard Group A/S has selected iXblue technology to provide navigation capabilities to the Norwegian Coast Guard’s new P6615 JAN MAYEN class vessels. The new series of vessels is expected to be delivered in 2022 -2024 and will thus be equipped with:
- Marins Series Inertial Navigation Systems (INS)
- Quadrans Gyrocompasses
- Netans Navigation Data Distribution and Computation Systems (NDDCS)
Benefitting from strap-down solid state FOG technology, iXblue’s INS requires zero maintenance through life whilst having no life limited components. Combined with the Netans Series of Navigation Data Distribution & Computation Systems, they ensure that resilient and reliable navigation information is provided at all times and address the cybersecurity challenges faced by the world’s navies.
iXblue technologies already offer undisrupted navigation capabilities to over 40 navies and Coast Guards worldwide and are onboard all types of naval platforms (surface ships, submarines and AUVs) ensuring vessel safety and enabling naval platforms to successfully perform their missions, mitigating the common risk posed by the loss, jamming and spoofing of GNSS signals.

Joint Power for Europe’s Next-Generation FighterNew challenges call for new responses. When it comes to the protection of the German and European airspace, a system made up of manned and unmanned flight vehicles – dubbed the Future Combat Air System (FCAS) – is the solution. And the Next-Generation Fighter (NGF) will be an essential part of this. The NGF is expected to enter service by 2040 – powered by an engine that goes far beyond today’s capabilities.
