For generations of sailors the sextant was the most important navigational device using for determination of position and allowing a safe navigation on the sea.
Even in the era of GPS, the classical astronomical position-fixing by the help of luminaries and sextants is still necessary in the professional and sporting navy as well as belong to the basics of the training.
Due to malfunctions of electronic equipments, professional sailors never abandon ports without precision devices so that they are able to navigate on the traditional way in case of emergency.
The high accuracy of the Freiberger sextants, the precision and undistorted globe of the starfinder as well as the artifical horizon whereby you can replace the natural horizon at poor sight, are trademarks of the FPM Holding GmbH which stand for quality and reliability.
