In 2016, iXblue won a contract to provide INS for most of the Royal Fleet vessels. Robert Kramers explains why:

“We conducted a detailed assessment of all available possible partners along with their proposed technologies. By precisely understanding the Royal Navy expectations and assessing their views on the industry leading suppliers, it clearly appeared that iXblue’s solutions best fitted the needs in terms of performance, capability and cost.”
