Naval Group Selects iXblue for Gowind Vessels

iXblue has been selected by Naval Group to supply navigation systems for two Gowind corvettes intended for the international market. These two future combat corvettes will be fitted with Marins navigation systems and Netans data distribution and processing units. 
This contract reinforces iXblue’s long-standing collaboration with Naval Group. The company’s navigation solutions have already been selected by the naval defence company for numerous French and export programmes.
“We're delighted with Naval Group's renewed confidence in our navigation solutions for a key export programme such as the Gowinds,” said Benoît Kerouanton, Director of iXblue's Navigation Division. “Each of the two corvettes will be equipped with two Marins navigation systems and two Netans data distribution and processing units and will benefit from reliable, efficient and secure navigational information, whatever the environment, even when GNSS signals are unavailable, jammed or spoofed.”
Based on fibre-optic gyroscope (FOG) technology, iXblue navigation solutions equip more than 650 surface ships and underwater platforms in 40 navies and coast guards, including programmes such as the French Navy's future FDI, the new Astute-class nuclear attack submarines and the Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carriers of the UK Royal Navy, the F122 (Bremen-class) and F123 frigates (Brandenburg-class) of the German Navy, and the new OPV 87 of the Argentine Navy.
