Abu Dhabi Systems Integration LLC (ADSI) has selected Ixsea's Marins inertial navigation systems (INS) for the UAE Navy's 12 Ghannatha Class missile boats.

ADSI is the combat system integrator (CSI) of the missile boats which will use Ixsea's INS for navigation, positioning and to provide attitude measurement for weaponry alignment and stabilisation.

Marins is based on Ixsea's fibre optic gyroscope (FOG) technology, and is designed for navigation and weapons control on all types of naval vessels, including attack submarines, offshore patrol vessels, destroyers and frigates.

PHINS (photonic inertial navigation system) also incorporates FOG technology and is a surface INS that outputs position, attitude and velocity data with high accuracy.

PHINS is high-speed craft suitable for application on any surface vessel and a variety of subsea vehicles.
