The new solution is a microwave-based solution developed for DP applications in need for long-range relative positioning. With no moving parts and a compact and lightweight design, installation
is quick and agile.
Operating in the 9.2 - 9.3 GHz band, the the product operates in all-weather conditions, and has an unmatched performance in range and bearing accuracy. Each panel has an opening angle of
100° and a vertical lobe of 25°.
It can be deployed as an omni directional system utilising several sensor panels, which can be placed on suitable locations on the vessel dependent on the construction and operation. This
provides an extended operational area as well as avoidance of blind angles. Application software makes configuration and monitoring of the operation easy and effective, and interfaces to
remote systems like Dynamic Position may be serial lines or Ethernet based. The solution is designed to fill the need specified by IMO for DP Class 2 vessels.
In-built system test and verification
Prior to a operation, the product performs a check and verification of the system to secure a safe and efficient operation.
