FURUNO SC130 / SC70 – Satellite Compass


High Precision and accurate Heading of 0.25 Degrees. 

The SC-70 and SC-130 are the latest satellite compasses, built on FURUNO’s commerical-grade technology platform. These satellite compasses prove their value by increasing the accuracy of other instruments, such as Radar, Target Tracking (TT), ECDIS, AIS, Doppler Sonar and Autopilot.

They provide a highly accurate heading signal to these other technologies by utilizing the very latest GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System). It is comprised of Galileo and GLONASS to ensure the highest precision.

The SC-70 and SC-130 provide a variety of data, including GPS positioning, SOG (Speed Over Ground), COG (Course Over Ground), ROT (Rate Of Turn) and 3-axis speed (bow, stern and longitudinal). All of these data assist with critical manoeuvres, such as berthing.

These compasses are maintenance free and are a great asset for any vessel.


  • SC-130 features a Tri-sensor antenna that provides high accuracy for the heading of the ship
  • Utilizes GNSS such as Galileo and GLONASS for high prevision
  • Super short setting time – 90 seconds
  • 100% free of regular maintenance, no recurring cost, no mechanical parts
  • Rapid follow-up rate 40 degrees/s (twice the IMO high speed craft requirement, 20 Degrees/s)
  • Precision Pitch/Roll data in Analog and Digital formats for Vessel Stabilizers, SONAR, etc.
  • Bow adn Stern speed monitoring for safe berthing
  • Easy to retrofit by using existing antenna cabling
