LONDON, March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- iXBlue, a global leader in navigation, positioning and imaging solutions, is launching ROVINS NANO, a state-of-the-art inertial navigation system designed for ROV navigation. Announced at Oceanology International trade show, the product was eagerly awaited by the offshore industry.

Based on iXBlue's ultimate performance fiber-optic gyroscope technology, ROVINS NANO has been designed for ROV pilots performing maintenance and construction operations. It offers the unbeatable stability and accuracy of the inertial position, outputting true north, roll, pitch and rotation rates. Paul Wysocki, iXBlue ROVINS NANO Product Manager, comments: "ROVINS NANO is able to directly transmit the ROV's position with extreme accuracy thanks to its integrated INS algorithm capable of collecting acoustic data. This is now possible regardless of the depth at which it is located: it is therefore not just an evolution, but rather a revolution for the Middle Water Station Keeping."

ROVINS NANO is now there to guarantee optimal navigation safety: even in "sparse array" LBL fields, the combination between ROVINS NANO and iXBlue RAMSES acoustic system enables to reach extremely accurate positioning data.

Besides its high level of performance, ROVINS NANO adapts itself to its user: the configuration, installation and product's use have been considerably facilitated, while incorporating a system as complex as the INS. Moreover, thanks to its compactness and open architecture with all third-party sensors, ROVINS NANO is extremely easy to integrate. All of this, at a very affordable price: the product offers better return on investment and lower total cost of ownership.

Paul Wysocki is delighted: "We are very pleased to offer this unique system on the offshore navigation market. It does meet today existing needs and perfectly addresses the operator's requirements in terms of reliability, ease of use and price."

iXBlue is now offering an expanded range of proven subsea navigation systems, from ROV navigation to survey applications. Today, everywhere you need it under the sea, iXBlue is there to assist you with ultimate performance inertial equipment.
