Octans Subsea

Octans Subsea is a high-accuracy gyrocompass and motion sensor that can operate at depths of down to 3000m. Outputting heading, roll, pitch, heave, rate of turn and acceleration, it is ideal for UUV and ROV applications such as offshore survey and marine construction.


  • Complete gyrocompass and motion sensor
  • Smart Heave technology
  • Unique FOG (Fiber-Optic Gyroscope) strap-down technology
  • Ethernet, web-based man-machine interface (MMI)
  • Titanium made, small, portable plug and play system
  • Optional full featured inertial navigation system


  • High-performance real-time outputs of true heading, roll, pitch, heave, surge, sway, acceleration and rate of turn
  • No spinning element hence maintenance free
  • Lightweight corrosion free housing for water depth up to 3000 m, easy to integrate and interface, saves valuable mobilization time
  • Obtain INS-class system with simple software upgrade
