Distortions. Whether they result from magnetic, electric current, or ferrous materials, can spell disaster for the standard inertial sensor.View Products
Sparton’s inertial sensors, however, incorporate our proprietary AdaptNav™ solution, and in some models gyro-enhancement, which provides pinpoint heading accuracy even when no GPS signal is available. No environment is too harsh…no terrain too unforgiving.
ENHANCED 2D and 3D ADAPTIVE CALIBRATION
This best-in-class feature improves calibration speed and stability, while compensating for errors caused by positional changes in dynamic environments.
Powerful, user-programmable customizations via NorthTek forth interpreter.
360º ROLLOVER CAPABILITY
Regardless of the angle, Sparton inertial sensors maintain absolute accuracy—even when completely inverted.
Our sensors can determine acceleration in three dimensions simultaneously.
ADAPTIVE CALCULATION OF PITCH AND ROLL
Our 3-axis, tilt-compensated sensors provide three dimensional absolute magnetic field measurement and full 360º tilt-compensated bearing, pitch and roll.
This feature provides additional inertial sensor heading accuracy in the presence of stray magnetic fields.
HIGH RESOLUTION MAGNETICS
The use of magnetics permits finer discernment of the Earth’s magnetic field, thereby improving our sensor’s level of accuracy in dynamic or challenging conditions.
TRUE NORTH COMPUTATION
Our sensors utilize NOAA's World Magnetic Model for magnetic declination tables to determine the correct location, thereby providing a “true north” heading.
LOW POWER MANAGEMENT/SLEEP MODE
Powering down into sleep mode allows our sensors to use less energy, which increases battery life.
Marine life research. Defense and security. Oceanography and more. Whatever your application, our acoustic sensors can meet your most demanding needs.View Products
Our small, rugged, omnidirectional, broadband hydrophones provide high quality performance, real world durability and easily interface with any signal analyzer or data recording system.
FLAT BROADBAND FREQUENCY RESPONSE
Our pre-amplified hydrophones exhibit high sensitivity and minimal change in response and directivity with temperature and hydrostatic pressure over a wide frequency range.
Receive sound from virtually any direction, thereby maximizing your results.
LOW NOISE LEVELS
Our hydrophones have desirable equivalent self-noise figures, below Sea State 0.
Ruggedized hydrophones can withstand the toughest ocean conditions. They have successfully undergone a battery of extreme environmental tests, including mechanical shock, thermal shock, and hydrostatic pressure cycling without performance degradation.
LOW CURRENT DRAW
The integrated voltage preamplifier has a low current draw, making it an outstanding choice for applications where power budgets are low.
This handy feature allows you to verify electrical system integrity before deploying the hydrophone in the field.
INTEGRATED 10M UNDERWATER EM CABLE INCLUDED
Our hydrophones come standard with an integrated 10m underwater, Kevlar reinforced cable with two shielded, twisted pair wires to reduce electrical noise.
