Teledyne TSS is launching the latest addition to its Saturn product range at the Ocean Business exhibition with the introduction of its fiber-optic marine gyrocompass. This is an entirely new product from the gyro-compass manufacturer. It is specifically aimed at the commercial shipping, fast ferry and superyacht markets. The new Saturn gyro also includes attitude reference capabilities which make it an suitable for dynamically positioned platforms and for the provision of full attitude data for hydrographic survey vessels.

The Saturn 30 and 50 surface versions are designed as a solid state attitude and heading reference system (AHRS) and primary navigation sensor. The unit has no moving parts and is maintenance free being also lightweight, compact and highly reliable, making it suited for installations where space is at a premium. It is a flexible system for all sizes of vessel and excels on smaller craft such as fast ferries, yachts and patrol craft.
Teledyne TSS also offers higher accuracy versions of the Saturn in surface and subsea housings designed to support the offshore construction and multibeam sonar survey industries where reliability, price and performance are essential. These systems provide highly accurate pitch, roll, heading and heave and are suitable for a variety of applications including major seabed installations.
