iXBlue to deliver MARINS units for Swedish Navys A26 class submarines

French technology company iXBlue has been contracted by Saab to deliver its fibre-optic gyroscope technology, MARINS, for incorporation into the Swedish Navy's two Type A26 next-generation submarines.

Under the seven-year contract, iXBlue will provide its MARINS inertial navigation system to enable stealth autonomous navigation, providing very accurate heading, roll, pitch, speed and position, and enables operation under severe Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)-denied environments.

The system is incorporated with an array of features including high-accuracy sensors, fibre-optic gyroscope (FOG), strap-down technology, high baud rate and low latency, web based built-in interface, MIL-SPEC approved standard / IMO and is free of ITAR component versions available.

The delivery of the new submarines is expected to commence in 2022 and will be completed in 2024.
