MK31 INS

The MK31 is a ring laser gyro inertial navigation system (INS) that provides accurate heading, attitude and positional data for a wide range of naval vessels including frigates, corvettes, patrol vessels and submarines. It is ideal for customers seeking a cost-effective and reliable solution for navigation and control of onboard radar, weapon, and satellite systems.

The MK31 is easy to install, configure and operate. With extremely fast alignment alongside and at sea, the system provides highly accurate pitch, roll, heading and positional data even in the most extreme sea states. The complete system uses solid-state technology therefore no maintenance is required to keep the MK31 fully operational.
