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.
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.
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
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.
