iXBlue to showcase it range of inertial navigation systems at DEFEXPO 2014
iXBlue is an independent industrial worldwide group well-known for the design, development and manufacture of equipment, integrated systems and solutions for civil and military industries, oceanology, aeronautics and spatial industries. Its innovative technology is used for navigation, positioning, sub-sea imagery, ocean and land exploration (offshore, oceanography, hydrography, geophysics).

iXBlue is a major player in offshore oil and gas, a world leader in high-performance sea navigation systems and an expert in hydrography; the group regularly invests in research and development amounting to more than 20% of turnover. iXBlue is present throughout the world, has a growth rate of 20%, employs 450 people and turns over $ 100 M of which 80% is for export.
iXBlue has been selected to provide inertial navigation systems for the two Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers currently being built by the Aircraft Carrier Alliance for the UK Royal Navy. The bridge system for each of the carriers will incorporate two iXBlue MARINS units. Trials have already been conducted to optimise the configuration of the units to meet the specific operational requirements of the vessels.

At DEFEXPO 2014, iXblue will showcase:

• High Grade Gyrocompasses and Inertial Systems
iXBlue’s inertial navigation products are amongst the most accurate and reliable on the market: the OCTANS gyrocompass, the PHINS inertial navigation system and the very high performance military grade MARINS have been selected by the most prestigious navies to be the core of their navigation system. All our inertial products have demonstrated their reliability and ability to meet demanding military navigation requirements for all surface vessel requirements.

GECDIS products are IMO ECDIS and WECDIS STANAG navigation and surveillance systems. They are able to display and process a broad range of critical information from Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) or Digital Nautical Charts (DNC) as well as real time navigation and situation surveillance sensor data.

• Advanced Navigation Systems
NetANS collects, controls and performs the processing of all navigation sensors to provide the best navigation solution to the navigator and combat system operator.
