iXBlue Octans 3000 Gyro

Rugged and shock resistant, the Octans III 3000 Fibre-Optic Gyrocompass from iXSea is the only IMO survey grade Gyrocompass with an integrated motion sensor.


In addition to the 3 solid-state fibre optic Gyrocompass and accelerometers, the Octans III provides perfect real-time Heave data thanks to its SAFE (Self-adaptive Filtered Estimated) Heave filter. The advantages of the Octans III are self evident: no speed, altitude or latitude restrictions and most importantly, it’s accurate no matter how high the waves are.

High performance real-time outputs of true heading, roll, pitch, heave, surge, sway, acceleration and rate of turn
No spinning element hence maintenance free
Lightweight corrosion free housing for water depth up to 3000m
