The NAVIGAT 3000 Compass and Attitude Reference System provides all motion data required for surface ship‘s steering. The fibre optic gyro compass that has the capability for precise sea alignment.



NAVIGAT 3000 Gyro Compass

The NAVIGAT 3000 Fibre Optic Gyro Compass model has a clear advantage over spinning mass gyro compass models as it has no moving parts, no maintenance during service life, high dynamic accuracy, no north speed error, a short settling time and output for roll and pitch.

Safety is increased as a result of the high dynamic accuracy associated with the lack of north speed error. This is particularly valuable for high-speed craft at high latitudes during frequent manoeuvres.

The full NAVIGAT 3000 specifications are listed below:

  • Performance (under all conditions):

Heading                    ≤ 0.4° secant latitude RMS
Roll/Pitch angle      ≤ 0.1° for angles ≤ 45° RMS
Rate of Turn             ≤ 0.018° / minute
x/y rate                     ≤ 0.4° / minute
Heave                        0,1m

  • Will drive a max.  of 12 repeaters
  • Integrated monitoring of the supply powers, gyroscope current and follow up system
  • High speed follow up system 100°/sec
  • Automatic power changeover from AC mains to DC emergency supply and status alarm
  • Self-synchronizing repeater compasses
  • Electronic alignment error correction in setup program
  • 180° heading offset function for shuttle vessels
  • 6 independent serial outputs RS 400 & IEC 61162-1 and IEC 61162-2
  • 4 analogue outputs for rate-of-turn, roll and pitch signals
  • 2 independent 6 steps /° heading outputs (0.5A)
  • High Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF)
  • Power supply: 1x 115/230 VAC, 1x 24 VDC inputs


Key Benefits of NAVIGAT 3000:

  • Less installation space needed due to its small size and low weight
  • No moving parts for cost savings on maintenance
  • High dynamic accuracy
  • Very short settling time
  • Provision of heading, roll, pitch, x/y/z rate and heave sensor
  • Solid state, fully electronic strap down technology

High Performance, Low Maintenance

The NAVIGAT 3000 Fibre Optic Gyro Compass  system is maintenance free (MF) meaning regular maintenance or calibration is not required. It provides precise heading, roll, pitch, x/y/z rate and heave  information. Unlike the classic spinning-mass gyrocompass, the fibre optic gyro compass has no moving parts and does not rely on inertial resistance to any movement. Hence, this is the most reliable alternative to the mechanical gyrocompass. Because of their intrinsic reliability the NAVIGAT 3000 is used for high performance.
