Developing an affordable north seeking gyroscopic compass for aerospace, construction, mining and tunneling applications

ApoSys is applying the new method to develop an affordable north seeking gyroscopic compass for multiple applications. The cost of such device is too high to be used in many industrial processes. For example the mining industry the device is shared by a few groups of workers to reduce the cost. It has problems for the long standby time, low productivity, and increased cost. The similar scenario is exiting in other industries. Our innovation will make the same standard device with 30 to 50% cost so that it will help improve the productivity and save labor, time and money for customers.
