VIDEO: Quadrans provides high-precision navigation to revolutionary catamarans
iXblue’s Quadrans gyrocompasses have been providing extreme high-precision navigation to the six revolutionary F50 catamarans competing in the new SailGP global sports championship.
Quadrans is a fully strap-down Fiber-Optic Gyrocompass (FOG) and attitude reference system.
IMO and IMO-HSC certified, it provides all the necessary data for demanding navigation and control applications at a fast rate and with precise time-stamping.
Thanks to its low weight and small size, its low power consumption and its Ethernet/serial connectivity, it can be integrated with ease on any platform.
Based on state-of-the-art Fiber-Optic Gyroscope technology, Quadrans answers to a full range of navigation needs, without any compromise on performance and without requiring any maintenance during its service life.
