: 06 May, 2010  (Application Story)
Three-axis digital compass with tilt compensation to be supplied by Sparton under new order to be delivered in September
Sparton has received an $830,000 order for its SP3004D Digital Compass for use in military warfare equipment. Production will be performed at Spartonís DeLeon Springs, Florida facility. The scheduled completion date is September 2010.

The Sparton SP3004D is a three-axis, tilt-compensated digital compass that provides three-dimensional absolute magnetic field measurement and full 360į tilt compensated bearing, pitch, and roll outputs. Our proprietary adaptive algorithms provide continuous and exceptional accuracy in the presence of stray magnetic fields while automatically maintaining heading accuracy while in motion. Sparton digital compasses are used in unique and challenging applications including Precision Autonomous Vehicle Guidance, Weather Data and Ocean Surveillance, Enhanced GPS Navigation with Compass Integration, Vehicle Attitude Position and Orientation Sensing, and Magnetic Compass Navigation and Guidance. By Congressional Mandate, the Armed Forces have a goal of achieving the fielding of unmanned, remotely controlled technology such that by 2015, one-third of the operational ground combat vehicles of the Armed Forces are unmanned.
