Exail, a global leader in naval navigation, has been selected by Anschutz, a leading German company specializing in ship navigation systems, to supply Marins inertial navigation systems (INS) for the Royal Navy’s T31 Inspiration-class general-purpose frigates.


Exail’s high-end Marins INS will provide the T31 frigates with uninterrupted and highly accurate navigation data, regardless of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) availability or external disruptions. This capability ensures that the T31 crews maintain precise awareness of their location, even in challenging scenarios such as GNSS spoofing or jamming, granting them a crucial navigational advantage for achieving operational success.

“We take great pride in contributing to the Royal Navy’s mission success through the supply of our Marins INS for the T31 frigates. This contract underlines the quality and reliability of Exail navigation systems, which are maintenance-free and fully meet the stringent military requirements of the most modern combat ships,” said Jens Higgen, Regional Sales Director at Exail. “Through this collaboration, Exail remains dedicated to driving innovation and providing advanced navigation solutions to support the evolving needs of the Royal Navy’s critical missions.”



The selection of Exail’s Marins INS for the T31 frigates further strengthens Exail’s position as a trusted navigation partner for the Royal Navy. Exail’s navigation solutions are already deployed on numerous Royal Navy vessels, including the Astute-class nuclear attack submarines, Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carriers, Duke-class frigates, as well as Vanguard-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines.

The T31 frigates will play a pivotal role in deterring aggression and safeguarding the security of the UK’s interests. These frigates, designed to be agile and versatile, will replace the T23 frigates, enhancing the Royal Navy’s operational capabilities across general-purpose roles.
