Airplanes security, GEM elettronica participate to an ambitious project involving important AeroSpace partners 


The Sardinia AeroSpace District, DASS, recently signed an important framework agreement with Airbus Company with the objective of enforcing  the security of navigation and positioning of manned and unmanned aircrafts. The project will involve 8,2 millions Euro and it is especially dedicated to the study and the development of an innovative system ensuring positioning and guidance to different kind of aircrafts.

For this purpose, the collaboration with GEM elettronica, already actively participating to DASS programs, is a strategic choice for Airbus and the Sardinia AeroSpace District, aiming to involve other important European industrial partners capable of offering  the technological know-how and excellence that every Research & Development project needs. 

Among the most important shareholders of the technological AeroSpace District, GEM elettronica is favorably willing to contribute to this project by offering its collaboration and its experience in the development of engineering advanced Gyroscopes and Inertial Navigation equipment.

In the first months of 2017 GEM elettronica accepted the request of ITALIAN NAVY aiming to realize a series of accurate tests on a 10 years of operation POLARIS FOG-100 with exceptional, but expected, results.


Since 2000, GEM elettronica, already an Electro Mechanical Gyrocompass producer, has perceived that the new Fiber Optic technology applied to Gyroscopes would have been the future development of cutting edge Inertial Navigation Systems. For this reason GEM elettronica has focused in-house resources and enhanced its investments on this innovative technology.

In 2005 GEM elettronica has installed the first Fiber Optic Gyroscope (FOG) on board of Italian Navy vessels, and since then the company has pursued the development of new products based on Fiber Optic Technology thanks to its qualified R&D division and a specially dedicated laboratory, named PRANS. One of the results of these activities is the increase of the sensors performances, reaching the top of the range.

Strongly relying on the quality of its equipment, GEM elettronica willingly accepted the request of one of its most important customers for testing a FOG supplied ten years ago to the Italian Navy and since then operative in one of their ships. Alongside with Italian Navy personnel, GEM elettronica’s experts could proudly certify that their FOG-100, despite 10 years of constant service in hard conditions, can still fully guarantee the expected performances and features.


This success story testimony how investments in quality and innovation are important for a reliable product and GEM elettronica Polaris FOG, after ten years of continuous work and no technical intervention, still successfully performs at its best ensuring high-accuracy in Inertial Navigation.
