SUBSEA POSITIONING

Subsea Positioning
iXSea's expertise in Fiber Optic Gyroscopes (FOGs) and underwater acoustic technology enables it to offer underwater positioning solutions capable of high operational performance even in the most extreme conditions.

By coupling gyrocompasses or high-precision inertial navigation systems (INS) with underwater acoustic positioning systems (e.g, USBL), the position of a ROV, AUV or sonar can be determined with robustness and accuracy unequalled by any other system on the market, as well as optimizing performance in the field.

Examples of possible applications are seabed mapping activities required prior to dredging and drilling operations, pipeline and cable surveys, scientific environmental studies, or subsea vehicles positioning (AUV, ROV's).
