Teledyne TSS Orion INS achieves IMO approval

Teledyne TSS (International) Ltd. : 19 June, 2009  (Special Report)
Teledyne TSS have won approval of performance standards from the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for their Orion Inertial Navigation System (INS).
The International Maritime Organization is the United Nations specialised agency
responsible for improving maritime safety and preventing pollution from ships.

Performance standards for Inertial Navigation Systems were adopted by the IMO to enhance the safety of navigation by providing integrated and augmented functions to avoid geographic, traffic and environmental hazards. An INS comprises navigational tasks such as route planning, route monitoring and collision avoidance, including the respective sources, data and displays that are integrated into one navigation system.

An INS is defined as such in the performance standards if it covers at least two of the
following navigational tasks/functions: route monitoring, collision avoidance and track

The Orion Inertial Navigation System was specifically designed for the demanding
hydrographic survey, offshore construction and ROV operations markets. It incorporates three single axis ring laser elements and three highly accurate accelerometers. These specific components, widely used in many of the world's commercial aircraft, were chosen for Orion because of availability, accuracy and their very high meantime between failures. These core elements enabled the TSS research and development team to design this high specification Inertial Navigation System that is configured and controlled by the latest easy-to -use interface - OrionView

Orion utilises the latest version of the TSS inertial algorithm, which has over 30 years
of pedigree providing outstanding performance in all sea conditions. Orion is offered as
an IP65-rated surface unit or 3000m-rated subsea unit (6000m optional).
