OCTANS 3000

HIGH PERFORMANCE SUBSEA GYROCOMPASS AND MOTION SENSOR

OCTANS 3000 is a subsea survey-grade gyrocompass and complete motion sensor for water depths up to 3 000 m. Based on iXBlue's FOG technology it outputs heading, roll, pitch, heave, rate of turn and acceleration. OCTANS 3000 can be easily upgraded to full INS mode (i.e. ROVINS).
