By the introduction of DPS i2 and DPS i4, KONGSBERG fuses decades of experience within GNSS and inertial technology in order to create a fully scalable and future-proof reference solution with emphasis on operational efficiency for DP applications.
DPS i2 and DPS i4 integrate KONGSBERG’s unique motion gyro compass (MGCTM) and
motion reference unit (MRUTM) technology. MGC provides INS functionality, and a solution with MRU offers an optimal integration of multi GNSS and inertial sensors, which will ensure high availability and integrity of the position
solution. When choosing MGC as the inertial sensor, a high-quality WheelMark gyro compass with no scheduled maintenance, will be a part of the solution. In addition, MGC can serve other on-board systems with attitude data.
As DPS i2 utilizes GPS and GLONASS, DPS i4 adds Galileo and Beidou to supported GNSS systems.
Increased operational efficiency
Inertial technology combined with the latest
multi-constellation GNSS technology enables a cost efficient and reliable position reference
solution, where no additional augmentation
service is required. Still DPS i2 and DPS i4 are fully capable to utilize differential corrections and SBAS services where required.
With the ready-to-use possibility of remote service and diagnostics, the DPS i2 and
DPS i4 product line is a true solution for the future,
benefiting from the KONGSBERG global support service. Cases that previously required a visit from a service engineer, may now be resolved remotely.
The flexible design of the DPS i2 / DPS i4
product line ensures a scalable and expandable reference solution that can adapt to the
specific requirements of any vessel. For the more demanding applications, a combination of DPS i2, DPS i4 and MRU/MGC sensors will, in addition to redundancy, enable precise heading determination and spoofing detection capabilities. DPS i2 / DPS i4 may utilize existing or
dedicated MGC or MRU sensors for the
Adaptive operational environment
DPS i2 and DPS i4 have the same intuitive and easy-to-use graphical user interface as the
recognized KONGSBERG DPS series, developed in close co-operation with experienced DP
operators. The HMI (Human-Machine Interface)
enables the operators to assess the quality of their
positioning quickly and effectively during
operation. Multiple layers of information give the DP operator unmatched opportunities for a
customized, operation-specific visual presentation.
