iXblue has got an unique range of inertial solutions not affected by GPS outage for surveyors, from gyrocompass to complete inertial navigation systems. Our systems can detect spikes on GPS data (when surveying under bridges, etc.) and exclude them from the navigation calculation.
Based on Fiber-Optic Gyroscope technology mastered by iXblue over 30 years, iXblue offers a complete range of high-grade, attitude and heading reference systems (AHRS) and Inertial Navigation Systems (INS).
Ground waves detection
Seismology has been awaiting a portable broadband sensor for rotational motions for decades. blueSeis is the first sensor that fulfills the requirements of seismology. No calibration needed and maintenance-free
True North Aligner
Prerequisite for trustwhorthy 6-axis seismology measurements, Quadrans is a fully strap-down gyrocompass and attitude reference system. It provides all the necessary data to guarantee a perfect sensor alignment to the True North.
ACOUSTIC POSITIONING & COMMUNICATION
3D Multibeam Echosounder
Complete environment monitoring from Water column to bathymetry and seabed classification thanks to the first compact civilian system comprising a dual Mills Cross multibeam sonar transducer.
Delph Series focuses on the acquisition and processing of geophysical data. From the tight integration of sensors to cartographic deliverables, Delph handles the transformation from raw side-scan sonars, sub-bottom profilers, seismic and magnetometers data to mapping products in a very logical and ultra-efficient workflow.
Our survey teams undertakes accurate survey and monitoring of the total marine eco-system for Government agencies, oil & gas companies, telecommunications companies, port and harbour authorities, renewable energy companies and defence organisations around the world.
