Royal Danish Navy

Since 1997 NAVICON has been committed to the modernization of a large and complex, nation-wide, surveillance system used by the Royal Danish Navy.

The system is developed under military measures of robustness and reliability, and manages very complex means of communications towards other military systems.

Some examples of engineering work supplied by NAVICON engineers are:

  • definition of software architecture
  • real-time data distribution and persistence software
  • real-time tactical display with sea charts, synthetic tracks and live radar video
  • Network layout and configuration of network equipment

  • NAVICON has developed large parts of the Danish Maritime Assistance Service (MAS) which is an integrated part of Admiral Danish Fleet functioning around the clock as a central maritime contact point.

Bombardier Transportation

NAVICON is involved in railway traffic management and surveillance by supplying consultancy to Bombardier Transport (signaling division) in Copenhagen, Denmark.

NAVICON provides general system support and maintenance, but also does customer specific adaptions within the domains of X/Motif, logging and transmission drivers.

Offshore Systems

NAVICON works in co-operation with Danelec Electronics A/S and Offshore Systems Ltd. on developing and supporting Navigation Computers for maritime purposes.

This is communicated to other mission-critical systems on-board, especially the ECPINS navigation system supplied by Offshore Systems Ltd. The software runs under the Linux operating system on an embedded computer.

Navy NavCom

NAVICON's Navigation Computer is a real-time mission-critical software-product running on standard, embedded or MILSPEC computers that has been developed in close cooperation with the Royal Danish Navy.

The Navigation Computer takes input from sources such as Military GPS, Civilian GPS, inertial navigation systems, gyros, speed logs, wind gauges, echo sounders and other. It performs advanced input evaluation to detect faulty signals or systematic errors. Accepted signals are then exposed to a Kalman filter in order to perform sensor fusion.

The Navigation Computer has been installed fleet-wide by the Royal Danish Navy
