com)-- Aberdeen-based subsea installation contractor Bibby Offshore has chosen to invest in two SPRINT subsea inertial navigation systems
from Sonardyne International Ltd.
The mechanism of error accumulation in the inertial navigation system
is the following.
The aim of the research is to investigate and develop a new combined inertial navigation system
based on electronic gyroscopes, magnetic and barometric sensors.
It will be used against a variety of targets and employs a Global Positioning System and Inertial Navigation System
to allow day, night and adverse weather operations.
The new OCTANS is an all-in-one gyrocompass and motion sensor (attitude and heading reference system, AHRS) and brings in new and enhanced features, including IMO/ IMO-HSC certification and inertial navigation system
(INS) product upgrade-path.
It is equipped with an integrated Global Positioning Inertial Navigation System
(GPINS), forward looking infrared (FLIR).
A Sonardyne SPRINT system was installed on one of Oceaneering's Maxximum ROVs and integrated with a Sonardyne Ranger 2 Ultra Short Baseline (USBL) system for acoustic aiding of the Inertial Navigation System
The contract for the LTN-101E inertial navigation system
potentially could be worth $400 million.
In addition to the HTF7350, Honeywell will supply Bombardier with its 36-150 APU, which is currently on the Challenger 300aircraft, its inertial navigation system
and Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) database for improved navigation and situational awareness.
It is equipped with an advanced inertial navigation system
and has features to deceive anti-ballistic missiles.
The Harrier is an even more potent bombing platform with the addition of the global positioning system-coupled inertial navigation system
and the Litening pod.
The deal needs the firm to do critical work such as a new glass cockpit, multifunction displays, flight management system, moving map system, inertial navigation system
, GPS, identify friend-or-foe system, advanced radios and a self-protection system.
