USCG approves Northrop Grumman’s SeaFIND INS

12th May 2020 - 09:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The USCG has approved Northrop Grumman’s SeaFIND inertial navigation system (INS) for use as a shipboard gyrocompass solution.

The official approval comes after vigorous testing and evaluation in order to ensure that it complies with International Maritime Organisation (IMO) standards.

The system is designed using a modular architecture and comprises an inertial measurement unit and a separate electronics unit connected via a single cable.

Todd Leavitt, VP of maritime systems and integration at Northrop Grumman, said: ‘In addition to SeaFIND’s low size, weight and power, affordability and reliable performance in a GPS-denied environment, being type approved makes it very attractive to customers throughout the world.’
