Using unmanned systems for stand-off MCM: How to avoid obstacles
Relying on unmanned technologies to assess underwater threats, Navies have to make sure their autonomous system have optimum navigation capabilities in order to avoid obstacles and operate safely. Discover how ECA Group’s drones-based system UMIS chosen by Belgian and the Royal Netherlands Navies, and that integrates the latest iXblue avoidance sonars, can support you in conducting safe missions at sea.Speaker: Marc Pinto, Scientific Advisor at ECA Group and Julien Guichard, Sonar Programs Manager at iXblueLength: 10 min + Q&A session
Enhancing resilient positioning and navigation awareness
To enhance navigation awareness and crews short-time decision-making, iXblue has developed an advanced e-navigation solution relying on artificial intelligence. Through sensors redundancy and the augmented reality display of all key navigation information (routes, shallow waters, buoys, AIS…), Cetos Suite allows ensures a resilient and safe navigation. Join one of our two sessions to learn how our Cetos Suite will provide resilient positioning and enhance your situation awarenessSpeaker: Josselin Manceau, Cetos Suite expert and exceptional participation of the CEPN (French Expertise Center for Naval Programs)
Ensuring undisrupted navigation within GNSS-denied environments
From the manufacturing of advanced sensors and navigation data distribution and computation systems, to navigation software, iXblue covers the full value chain of navigation. By detecting GNSS spoofing and/or jamming, as well as identifying and counteracting potential cybersecurity threats, iXblue products and solutions provide resilient navigation information in all conditions.

SeapiX-F: how to balance efficiency and by-catch rules with advanced fishery acoustics
SeapiX-F is the first compact civilian system comprising a dual Steerable Mills Cross multi-beam sonar transducer. Its transducer generates several simultaneous multibeam transmissions and acoustic processes to yield quantitatively and qualitatively impressive measurements of the marine environment. SeapiX-F revolutionizes fishing techniques by providing optimally calibrated information and unparalleled surveillance of a designated underwater spatial volume. It answers some of the toughest demands placed on skippers, offering total visibility over the underwater environment so that informed, strategic fishing decisions can be made in real time thanks to realistic quantitative and qualitative distribution of biomass.Speaker: Christophe Corbières, Fishery acoustics expertLength: 15 minutes + Q&A session
Echoes Series: how to optimize sub-bottom profiling data?
Benefitting from 30 years of field proven technology and expertise in designing transducers, the Echoes Series provides high-resolution sub-bottom profiling solutions for sediment structure characterization. Through extensive practice and cumulative return on experience in close collaboration with the French Navy and international Oceanographic Institutes, the Echoes Series ensures the best signal quality for the first 200 meters of sediment. Whether pole or hull-mounted on small crafts and oceanic research vessels, or integrated on autonomous vehicles (AUVs & USVs), this versatile technology is suited to a wide range of applications including marine & lacustrine geosciences, archaeology & geo-archaeology, as well as offshore energy operations.Speaker: Guillaume Jouve, Sonar ExpertLength: 15 minutes + Q&A session
How to select the right INS?
When you need an Inertial Navigation System (INS), it is rather easy to specify the accuracy of the different parameters required, such as heading, roll, pitch, velocities or 3D position. However, an INS keeping this accuracy whatever the conditions encountered is what you really need for a successful mission. This is when it gets more difficult to select the INS that best fits your need. This webinar will provide you with some clues about the most difficult conditions during which INS performance can be altered. You will learn what questions you really need to ask INS manufacturers in order to get crucial performance information, even when those technical aspects are not displayed in datasheets.Speaker: Yves Paturel, Navigation Systems Senior ExpertLength: 25 minutes + Q&A session
How to select the right IMU?
Once you have designed your system and computed the required performance of the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) you need, it is time to select the one that best meets your requirements. But how to read an IMU datasheet? How to understand the verbiage of IMU manufacturers? This webinar will focus on the main parameters of the sensors that have been put together to build an IMU and will help you understand the different technical words and what they correspond to. And, last but not least, you will learn what key parameters you need to ask for when they are missing from IMU manufacturers datasheets.Speaker: Yves Paturel, Navigation Systems Senior ExpertLength: 25 minutes + Q&A session
Sparse LBL: How to enhance subsea positioning performance
Today, many subsea positioning techniques are available to operators. However, most of them require the use of many transponders and remain costly. While LBL is the preferred solution for highly accurate subsea positioning, Sparse-LBL is a more efficient, flexible and cost-effective method that uses a reduced number of transponders to achieve similar performance.
During this webinar, you'll discover how sparse LBL can make a difference to your subsea operations! Make sure to select one of our two sessions to learn more.Speaker: Pierre-Yves Morvan, Subsea Positioning SolutionsLength: 15 minutes + Q&A session
