Magnetic Azimuth Measurement and Orientation Sensor

A digital magnetic compass, the Mamos module offers as an enhancement to Instro’s range of Target Acquisition Systems. Working in conjunction with Instro’s digital goniometers and targeting application software, the Mamos module has been designed as a self contained detachable unit providing a highly accurate Azimuth Reference for Target Acquisition Systems.

Optimised for use by dismounted forces where physical size and weight of equipment is a critical consideration, the digital magnetic compass module is both lightweight and compact. Proven technology and a rugged metal housing ensures long service life and reliability in the field.

The digital magnetic compass module features a Smart Interface for all electrical connections requiring only the execution of a simple procedure by the operator during deployment to provide an accurate azimuth heading relative to the local horizontal magnetic field vector.

Other north finding modules available include the Samos, the all mechanical Solar and Celestial Compass and the Gyro Compass, the Ermos.
