The world’s first, truly multifunctional North Seeking solid state Gyro…

The Champ Navigator is a multifunctional North Seeking solid state gyro system allowing users to both align a drill rig and survey the drill hole – with one tool.

Capable of survey speeds of up to 200m (656ft) per minute utilising Axis’ proprietary onPoint™ Adaptive Roll Technology, the next generation Champ Navigator offers un-paralleled productivity and precision across a wider range of applications.

As with all Axis’ solid state technology the Champ Navigator is tough, reliable and with North Seeking capability it can establish its own starting azimuth.
