(Maynard, MA) True North Technologies is pleased to announce that it will be highlighted as a technology leader in the July/August 2012 edition of Marine Technology Reporter – the MTR100 edition. Marine interests including ROV, AUV, and glider manufacturers have been using Revolution compasses for the last 6 years in applications that are challenging – to say the least. The presence of motors, steel, batteries, and moving ballast contribute to a magnetic field that can best be described as a “moving target.” Creative calibration techniques and working with customers on compass positioning have helped enhance the quality of heading accuracy in underwater vehicles.
True North Technologies develops and manufactures products for marine, air, and land-based applications with a concentration in electronic compassing. True North is also a Microchip® Consultant specializing in designs utilizing Microchip Technologies’ PIC 16/17/18 micro-controllers. The company was founded in 1993 and is located in historic Clock Tower Place in Maynard, MA, the original home of Digital Equipment Corporation.
