Teledyne Gavia, manufacturer of the Gavia autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), said it has released a new navigation module that incorporates iXblue’s new Phins Compact C3 with a Teledyne RDI 1200 kHz Workhorse.

The system is another high quality option for customers interested in high accuracy navigation at a competitive market price and in a compact form, Teledyne Gavia said.

The Gavia AUV can be utilized in various applications, including geophysical surveys, cable and pipeline surveys, environmental surveys and under ice surveys, as well as Mine Countermeasures (MCM), Rapid Environmental Assessment (REA) and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) surveys.

Equipping the Gavia with the Phins Compact C3 and TRDI‘s Workhorse DVL offers a 0.3 percent CEP50 Distance Travelled navigation accuracy in a compact module that lowers the weight and size of the vehicle from previous navigation options. The Phins Compact C3 is the second inertial navigation system from iXblue that Teledyne Gavia has integrated into the Gavia AUV. Teledyne Gavia said it has had great success with the iXblue C5.
