THALES Navigation introduced the 3011 new GPS Compass. The compass is a heading measurement instrument designed for navigation professionals. The 3011 antenna consists of two GPS sensors, each of which is able to acquire 12 satellites. The 3011 GPS Compass can measure a vessel’s course with an accuracy of 0.5 degrees and is operational in less than 80 seconds after power is supplied. It is operational in less than 15 seconds in signal re-acquisition. A single cable is used to connect the dual antenna. The 3011 can easily interface to modern navigation systems such as OVERLAY radar. (THALES Navigation, Carquefou, France)
