Learn About Our Principal, Sparton Navigation and Exploration
Based in DeLeon Springs, Florida, Sparton Navigation and Exploration is a division of Sparton, Inc., an electronics and electromechanical manufacturing firm. They have more than a century of experience in designing and building products for governments and industries worldwide including systems, subsystems, and components such as digital compasses and advanced acoustic hydrophones. They offer inertial and acoustic sensor products as well as their knowledgeable and highly-experienced engineering team to help effectively integrate Sparton’s sensor solutions into their customer’s applications.
Sparton designs and manufactures MEMS-based inertial sensor systems that provide exceptional accuracy when measuring magnetic heading, orientation, and position in static and dynamic environments. Sparton’s sensor technology delivers accurate, low power, low cost, robust sensor platforms for military, industrial, and commercial applications.
Sparton hydrophones are an excellent choice for underwater applications requiring a small, rugged, omnidirectional, broadband solution. Designed to provide high quality performance and real world durability at an affordable price, the Sparton hydrophone meets the most demanding needs.
Applications requiring the highest degree of precision trust Sparton as their go-to solution for inertial sensor systems. The entire product family, from inertial measurement units (IMU) to attitude heading reference systems (AHRS), performs to task for the toughest, most ruggedized solutions. Stemming from their roots in government contracting, the Sparton suite of products are unmatched for critical solutions such as laser targeting, satellite communications, unmanned vechicles, and oil and gas exploration.

“Your product (Sparton inertial sensor) is going into our SharkCam vehicle for our next trip to Guadalupe. It is also going into all new vehicles and will be our ‘standard’ magnetic compass moving forward.”
Software Engineering Lead Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute Woods Hole, MA
“I moved the DMC (Sparton inertial sensor) in our demo units and got the same results as our bid sample cameras. The DMC score was consistent along with the DMC accuracy. These results meet our internal product specification.”
Mechanical Engineer FLIR Systems Billerica, MA
“We will take you up on your offer for the DC-4E (inertial sensor). We will be testing it sometime between March and June depending on a few internal factors. We like your suggestion on installing the compass and the potential savings that it will bring to our offering with the idea of an upgrade down the road.”

“Raytheon has selected Sparton’s GEDC-6 compass for our application which requires dynamic stability. I found the ‘Sparton GEDC-6 Compass with Dr. David Powell’ video to be very convincing. In this 2 minute video Dr. David Powell, Sparton Engineering Manager, describes the performance of the Sparton GEDC-6 compass mounted on a Scorsby table. Accurate position information supplied by the Scorsby table is compared to the GEDC-6 output.”

“Great performance! The results we obtained from such a small form factor sensor are a great benefit to our final system.”
