UrsaNav has a proven record of accomplishment in providing economical solutions for our clients, whether it is software, hardware, services, or support. Our core business lines are legacy system transformation and support, radar and radio navigation, specialized maritime product development and special purpose software application development and support.

Navigation Systems

Navigation systemsOur engineers, technicians, and logisticians are involved in the design, installation and maintenance of state-of-the-art navigation systems onboard US Coast Guard, US Navy, US Military Sealift Command, US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and US Army Corp of Engineer vessels. As a Value-Added Reseller of Furuno and Transas navigation systems, we can create a navigation system that meets your requirements and your budget. In addition, we can upgrade your existing navigation system. Our highly trained staff has extensive experience with the following:

•Complete electronic bridge design and installation
•Radar installation design, acquisition support, integration and installation
•Electronic navigation sensor selection, shipboard integration, and installation
•ECDIS / ECS selection, installation design and installation
•GMDSS console design and installation
•AIS installations
•Depot repair services
•Program management

Integrating state-of-the-art technology with your legacy systems

From submarines to aircraft carriers UrsaNav engineers have decades of experience designing equipment for the harsh shipboard environment. Our engineers are proficient in developing equipment that meets the following standards:

•MIL-S-901 shock requirements
•MIL-STD-167 vibration requirements
•MIL-STD-810 operating temperature and humidity requirements
•MIL-STD-1399 power requirements
•MIL-STD-461 electromagnetic interference requirements

Digital data interfaces for shipboard systems

In addition, they have decades of experience interfacing with legacy shipboard systems that use standard digital data interfaces such as MIL-STD-1397 naval tactical data system (NTDS) or analog interfaces such as 60Hz or 400Hz.

Tactical data systemsOur engineers specialize in interfacing the latest technology with your legacy system. We have many off-the-shelf solutions that could be quickly integrated into your platform. Two examples are detailed below; our UN-100™ Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Gateway, and our UN-239 monolithic ring laser gyro (RLG).

Tactical data systems

UrsaNav engineers have designed a low cost bolt-in replacement for the AN/WRN-6 and the AN/WRN-7. The UN-100™ PNT Gateway is a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution for replacing an obsolete and unsupported AN/WRN-6 or AN/WRN-7. Our solution requires no changes to any aspect of existing shipboard systems. Multiple navies currently rely on the UN-100™ to supply GPS information to their navigation and combat systems via MIL-STD-1397 Naval Tactical Data System Type A (NTDS slow) or Type B (NTDS fast) interfaces.

Spinning mass marine gyrocompasses

Our UN-239™, monolithic RLG is a replacement for the spinning mass marine gyrocompasses. The UN-239™ is a bolt-in functional replacement for earlier generation naval gyrocompasses such as the MK 11, MK 14, MK 18, MK 19, MK 23, and MK 29. It offers affordable state-of-the-art RLG technology to commercial and military shipboard applications.
