Exail has been chosen by Eelume to supply the company’s new S-Series all-terrain Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) with Exail’s Phins Compact C3 Inertial Navigation System (INS).

The Eelume S-Series is a new generation of all-terrain AUVs designed specifically for mapping and operating in challenging underwater terrains. Unlike traditional AUVs, they boast 360° of maneuverability in roll and pitch, offering versatility and sustainability in accessing previously unreachable environments.

Inertial navigation systems provide highly accurate and robust navigation data, with the Phins Compact C3 INS enhancing Eelume AUVs’ capabilities for efficient exploration, inspection, and monitoring in complex environments such as hillsides, under-ice areas, vessels, and harbors. 

Its compact OEM form factor will ensure easy integration into the AUVs, facilitating swift deployment and streamlining operations.

Quentin Chiche, Regional Sales Manager at Exail, commented; “We are grateful to Eelume for choosing our Phins Compact C3 INS for their latest AUV. It’s been rewarding to contribute to the development of such an innovative vehicle. 

“This partnership underscores Exail’s ability to deliver high-performance INS customized for next-generation AUVs. It also highlights our commitment to advancing underwater navigation technology by supporting our clients’ innovations and fostering a culture of technological progress and collaboration.”

Thomas Nygaard, CEO of Eelume, said; “We required a compact navigation system aligned with our eco-friendly approach, delivering unparalleled navigational accuracy and agility to conduct missions in intricate underwater terrains efficiently. 

“Exail’s Phins Compact C3 INS checks all the boxes. Thanks to this collaboration, our versatile AUVs paired with the Phins Compact C3 are set to totally change the game for underwater exploration.”
