SC-130 Satellite Compass

High precision and accurate heading of 0.25°. Perfect for Radar, ECDIS, AIS, Sonar and Autopilot

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

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

The 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 maneuvers, such as berthing.

This Compass is maintenance free and is a great asset for any vessel.


  • SC-130 features a Tri-sensor antenna that provides a high system accuracy for the heading of the ship. Provides highly accurate heading data for Autopilot, Radar, Target Tracking, AIS, Doppler Sonar, and ECDIS.
    • 0.25° Ideal for medium to large ships navigating in crowded ports and making precise maneuvers, such as berthing.

  • Type-approved as THD, GPS and ROTI*, complying with the following requirements: • IMO MSC.116(73) • IMO MSC.112(73) •IMO MSC.526(13) •IMO A.694(17) • IMO MSC.97(73) •IMO MSC.191(79) •IMO MSC.302(87) •IEC 60945 Ed.4 • IEC 62288 Ed.2 •IEC 61162-1 Ed. 4 •IEC 61162-2 Ed.1 •IEC 61162-450 Ed.1 •IEC 61108-1 Ed.2 •ISO 22090-3 Ed.2 •ISO 20672 Ed.1 * requires the RD-50 as a display unit

  • Utilizes GNSS such as Galileo and GLONASS for high precision
    ・SBAS compatible (EGNOS, WAAS, MSAS)
    ・Provide precise data for SOG, COG, ROT and L/L
    ・Eliminating the problem of not having enough satellites at hand by using multiple types of satellites

  • Super short starting time - 90 seconds
    ・Once the power is on, it takes about 90 seconds to start (the starting time will slightly differ depending on the equipment location)

  • 100% free of regular maintenance, no recurring cost, no mechanical parts

  • Easily integrated into the existing shipboard network via Ethernet

  • Rapid follow-up rate 40°/s (twice the IMO high speed craft requirement, 20°/s)

  • Precision Pitch/Roll data in Analog and Digital formats for Vessel Stabilization, SONAR, etc.

  • Bow and stern speed monitoring for safe berthing

  • Easy to retrot by using existing antenna cabling
    ・For SC-50/55/60/110/120 (The LAN_CNV option kit is necessary)
