Upgrade your iXBlue Fourth-Generation OCTANS to the latest Fifth-Generation: benefit from new features and enhanced performance!

iXBlue Fifth-Generation OCTANS, the trusted reference in sea navigation, offers the best performance-value available on the market and sets a new standard in the survey-grade product segment.


iXBlue, a global leader in navigation, positioning and imaging systems, is offering to its customers the opportunity to upgrade their Fourth-Generation OCTANS product manufactured from January 2014 on, to the Fifth-Generation system.


Built on iXBlue’s unique ultimate performance fiber-optic gyroscope technology, the OCTANS is an all-in-one gyrocompass and motion sensor (attitude and heading reference system) which brings valuable enhanced features, including IMO/IMO-HSC certification. The upgraded system provides extremely accurate real-time output for roll, pitch, heading and heave, as well as acceleration and rate of turns under challenging GNSS-denied environment.


Heading measurement accuracy has been doubled: with still 0.1° Seclat in stand-alone, the system can now provide 0.05° Seclat with GNSS. Moreover, the Fifth-Generation OCTANS now offers the ability to align on transit and the extended capability to deliver, in real time, accurate heave for swells up to 30 seconds.


Do not hesitate any longer and benefit from the attractive offer from iXBlue, which includes both the upgrade and calibration, backed by a 5-year warranty for this unrivalled reliable system.
