Robotic and navigation technology manufacturer Advanced Navigation have unveiled a high-tech robotics manufacturing facility, based out of UTS Tech Lab in Sydney.
The facility will scale up the manufacturing of Advanced Navigation’s AI navigation systems for GPS-denied environments, including the digital fibre-optic gyroscope (DFOG) technology, Boreas.
Made with strategic-grade standards, DFOG is entering new markets such as autonomous vehicles, marine vessels, aerospace applications, and unlocking long-endurance space missions to the Moon and Mars beyond.
Advanced Navigation CEO and co-founder Xavier Orr said: “There is a critical need to improve Australia’s economic complexity and sovereign capabilities.
“A key step is to build our industrial capacity in high-tech, as well as drive knowledge exchange and propel collaborative initiatives between government agencies, academic institutions and industry leaders.”
Adopting a vertical integration framework, the facility houses equipment and processes for automated manufacturing utilising machine learning.
