Belgian Navy Awards Contract to IXSEA

Wednesday, November 15, 2006
IXSEA announced the signing of a contract with the Belgian Navy to provide an integrated survey solution for their mine warfare data center (MWDC), the company announced in Paris on November 15. The purpose of the MWDC is to collect hydrographic data and to produce electronic and paper charts with additional military layers.

IXSEA's integrated survey solution (ISS) will be used onboard minehunters for route survey, homeland security and REA (rapid environment assessment). The ISS includes state of the art imagery sensors : COTS IXSEA’s Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SHADOWS), IXSEA's new Gradiometer, Kongsberg’s Multibeam Echosounder, and IXSEA's GAPS, a positioning and motion sensor. A comprehensive PC based exploitation software solution is included, allowing survey management and joint display and interpretation of all the data collected. This solution integrates the QPS and CARIS software to meet the customer specific requirements. IXSEA already has a long and successful relationship with the Belgian Navy: PHINS, IXSEA's PHotonic Inertial Navigation System has been the main INS onboard their minehunters for a number of years.
