The MK31 INS is easy to install, configure and use. With a settling time of less than 30 minutes at sea and less than 15 minutes at dockside, the unit can provide highly accurate heave, pitch, roll and heading data in even the most extreme sea conditions.
It can handle rates of turn of up to 250 per second in any orientation due to a strapdown INS algorithm. The entire system is built on solid-state technology so no maintenance is needed to keep the MK31 fully operational.
