One of Sitep’s specific skills in the navigation systems design area is the retrofit of Gyrocompasses and relevant digital and analogue interfaces on board military vessels.


Through a number of programs performed in the past for the Italian Navy and foreign Navies, Sitep has developed some special interfaces equipment capable to assure a number of features, in the replacement of an obsolete gyrocompass with a new one (of different type and with different interfaces).




– Electrical and mechanical compatibility with existing navigation system.

– Functional compatibility.

– Proper driving of the users previously driven by the replaced gyrocompass (protocol, format, power).


The Universal Retrofit Gyrocompass Unit is a significant example of such interface systems, while a number of other ones are available as well.


Other types of Gyrocompass interface units can be designed and produced under specific requirements issued by the Customer.
