Gyro Compass and INS MGC R5

The MGC R5 product is a fully inertial navigation system (INS). It can output heading, roll, pitch, heave and position. Acceleration and velocity of linear motions, as well as angular rates, are output from the unit. The MGC R5 product outputs both processed and raw
(gyro and accelerometer) sensor data.

The MGC R5 can be used as a stand-alone unit or as an IMU in other  systems. The product is designed for high precision maritime applications such as offshore operations and seabed mapping.
The product includes integrated navigation algorithms with input from a GNSS receiver for output of aided position and heading data. The proven PFreeHeave® algorithms are part of the navigation algorithms that enable down to 2 cm accuracy in delayed heave output and 3 cm accuracy in real-time heave output. The linear position and velocity measurements can be output in up to four different points on the vessel.
