Equipping the Gavia with the Phins Compact C3 and TRDI‘s Workhorse DVL offers a 0.3% CEP50 Distance Travelled navigation accuracy in a very 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 has had great success with the iXblue C5, so the company is excited to extend the portfolio of iXblue technology available on the Offshore Surveyor with the introduction of the Phins Compact C3.
