The Photonics Research & Advanced Navigation Sciences laboratories (PRANS) , a highly-innovative section of GEM elettronica and a real technological flagship, has been recently rearranged by enhancing company’s investments.


In particular, a new director has been nominated in the person of Ing. Leonardo Daga , which is going to manage PRANS laboratories projects. He is substituting previous director Ing. Stefano Alidori, which is now promoted to the position of Director of Research and Development.          


Furthermore, in order to enhance the legacy between in-house laboratories on Inertial Systems and their wide possible market applications, a dedicated new commercial position has been created and entrusted to Ing. Alessandro Rossi.

GEM elettronica representatives had the chance to be part of the agenda at AIAD headquarters during the visit in Italy of the Vice Admiral Ari Soedewo, Chief of the Maritime Security Agency of the Republic of Indonesia (Bakamla), and a delegation of Indonesian forces authorities.
The meeting had place the 17
th May 2017 in Rome at AIAD offices (Federation of Italian companies for Aerospace, Defence and Security), where the Indonesian Maritime Security Agency met the most competitive Italian industries related to maritime security and safety.

IMDEX Asia Exhibition just closed its doors, 2017 has been a challenging edition!

Here are some pictures of our stand in Singapore Changi Exhibition Centre, where delegations from all over the world came to visit us and disclosed a strong interest in our products.

Other than our Photonic Division, our guests manifested the intention to examine in depth our 3D Navigation Radar System, MFRAD, and our Optronic Turret EOFCS 115/A (in the picture), part of our group of Electro-Optical Fire Control System.

Patrol Bridge: GEM Advanced Integrated Bridge and Data Fusion C2 System

Today’s sophisticated naval platforms need to perform a multiplicity of complex missions. Under these demanding constraints it is paramount that the vessel operator has real time access to a large set of data which need to be fused, processed and evaluated by an intelligent system. GEM elettronica new PATROL BRIDGE Integrated Navigation System is the answer to these demanding requirements. PATROL BRIDGE provides advanced navigation technology and harmonized command and control, even when only one operator is on duty. PATROL BRIDGE has been designed to be tailored to large varieties of ships (both navy and commercial) and combat systems. Its user-friendly and ergonomic configuration calls for three to five super-resolution 50”, multi-functional, rugged monitors, which are arranged in circular fashion around a comprehensive multi-functional keyboard. This interconnected configuration allows for a centralized control of all sensor information or command and control for navigation and maritime awareness. The data being presented is processed and fused by a series of COTS computers in a remotely-installed rack. The operator has the capability of customizing how the data is displayed in support of an effective decision-making function.
 Patrol Bridge: GEM Advanced Integrated Bridge and Data Fusion C2 System
PATROL BRIDGE integrates and fused together data coming from surveillance and navigation sensors (such as solid-state, high-power or LPI radars, WECDIS, WAIS, TV/IR images, conning, VDR, alarms, autopilot and navigation sensors) to provide unambiguous target detection and tracking, chart management, route management, and communications. PATROL BRIDGE interfaces with sensors and external consoles is carried out through a redundant network and the system can be even linked to satellite and crypto radio networks. PATROL BRIDGE was also designed with a precise safety and security aim. In fact, the operator can create several safety zones at prescribed radius from the ship, and the system will automatically provide alerts if any intruder crosses these safety boundaries. At that point, the operator can activate non-lethal (or lethal, if the ship doctrine calls for it) countermeasures to defy the incoming threat. Finally, PATROL BRIDGE architecture allows for ease of maintenance and cost-effective future expansion in terms of capabilities and functions.
Dual-Axes Fiber Optic Gyroscope (FGU-200) Dual-Axes Fiber Optic GyroscopeGEM elettronica is introducing its high-reliable dual-axes Fiber Optic Gyroscope for military and civilian applications. The system, denominated FGU-200, is a dual-axis gyro system realized with state-of-the-art closed loop Fiber Optic in GEM state-of-the-art Photonic Research labs. The system has been developed in response to a specific request of one of the major world manufacturer of naval and land defence systems to stabilize and control its weapon platforms. In this application, FGU-200 has already proven to be extremely effective and reliable. By and large, FGU-200 can be effectively utilized in the fields of:
        • weapon and gun turret stabilization
        • dynamic control systems,
        • industrial robotics and vehicles,
        • EO/FLIR/RADAR stabilization and pointing,
        • radar antenna stabilization,
        • line-of-sight tracking.

With fully-integrated optics and electronics, FGU-200 offers an advantageous weight and form factor, while its extremely high performance optics and electronics - combined with proprietary complex thermal compensation algorithms - provides very low noise and negligible angle random walk in an extended operative temperature range. Stefano Alidori— responsible for GEM Photonic Research lab— defines FGU-200 as “an outstanding design, not only for its high precision, competitive cost and small size, but also for its incredible reliability.
FGU-200 features fully solid-state technology, no moving parts and, therefore, an amazing MTBF value. It does not need schedule maintenance and is designed for severe and harsh operations. The system has proven a remarkable performance withstanding severe shock and vibration operational environments”. Thanks to an accurate manufacturing process and the use of digital closed loop control, GEM FGU-200 gyros show very low noise, high accuracy and stability, high resolution, wide measure range/bandwidth and low latency. Moreover, the FGU-200 is “calibration free”, while ensuring consistent quality, performance, and instant turn-on to turn-on repeatability, scale factor non-linearity, and maximum input rate.

GEM elettronica will display and present its FGU-200 at the upcoming Euronaval 2014 show in Paris.
