Solving Navigation Challenges of Subsea Vehicles with Sensor-fused Advanced Control and Navigation Systems

One of the biggest challenges facing small underwater vehicles is reliable navigation and control. Why? Because GPS doesn’t work underwater. North-seeking systems are expensive, large and power-hungry. Dead reckoning is error-prone because it depends on precise measurement of speed and direction. Adding to the challenge are other hurdles like current-induced crabbing and heave.

Greensea Systems’ INSpect GS4 INS inertial navigation solution featuring KVH’s high performance 1750 IMU solves this challenge because it is:

  • Small & lightweight
  • Accurate & affordable
  • Easy to install & configure
  • A stable navigation source for station keeping & automation
  • Capable of fusing data from available aiding sensors
