Based on the Fiber-Optical Gyroscope technology mastered by iXblue over 30 years, the company offers a complete range of fiber-optic gyroscope-based high-grade, attitude and heading reference systems (AHRS) and Inertial Navigation Systems (INS).
A FOG is a genuine strap-down solid-state gyroscope exempt from all the physical drawbacks that may affect other existing technologies. The result is unrivalled longevity and reliability, low power consumption and silent operations.
This technological advantage allowed us to developed a complete range of products from navigation to survey-grade applications. With 20 years of experience in the field, iXblue is a recognized and esteemed player.
