Everything is possible:

It’s all in your Heading

Extremely accurate heading is our business - and the technology core of positioning a ship. If the Heading is off by the slightest, your prediction will be unreliable, and essentially useless.Thanks to the wireless architecture of the ADX, heading discrepancies lower than 0.01 deg is achieved.

Our aim is always nothing less than Zero Downtime.
