Reliable and accurate determination of true north

EDePro | North Finder
Quality determined by accuracy

Precision, reliability and superior performance are essential to meet expectations of today's high demanding military and defence battlefields. At EDePro we understand that only peak performance of solutions we deliver lead to successful missions of our clients. Our accurate, fast and advanced navigation solutions based on latest technologies are the ones to make difference in the most critical missions, where precision is a must.

EDePRo’s advanced North Finder uses a gyroscopic compass to measure the true geographic North of the Eart direction (Azimuth angle) finding the angle of the Earth rotation axis with respect to the North Finder reference frame. The device takes less than 10 minutes to provide highly accurate azimuth data.

Primarily intended for the missile target aiming, North Finder can be used for the alignment of the missile launching platform, Inertial Measurement Unit, initial angular alignment or any other application requiring precise true North direction in the stationary conditions. The mechanical interface provides a precise reference surface to which the North direction output angle is referenced, and the output direction angle is given in the digital form.

The nature of its algorithm, makes the device suitable for both, outdoor and indoor environment. Unlike GPS Compass, it does not require RF signal reception nor a large dual antenna.
