Optimized for Dynamic Positioning

Operating in the 9.2-9.3 GHz band, the XPR 100 operates in all weather conditions, and has an unmatched performance in range and bearing accuracy. To cover a broad operational area and avoid blind angles, XPR 100 can be deployed as an omni directional system utilizing several sensor units. Application software makes configuration and monitoring of the XPR 100 operation easy and effective, with interfaces to remote systems like Dynamic Positioning that may either be serial lines or Ethernet based. The XPR 100 is specifically designed to meet the requirements set by IMO for DP Class 2 vessels.

Advanced Targeting and Verification

Targets are stored in the system, and continous monitoring in all directions (area of operation) mitigates false target lock, and secures a very fast target aquisition. Prior to an operation, the XPR 100 performs a check and verification of the system to secure a safe and efficient operation. The XPR 100 features a highly intuitive HMI enabling the operators to assess the quality of their positioning quickly and effectively during operation. For better visibility under different light conditions, the operator can easily select between a set of colour palettes, including a well proven night display.

Certification and Complementary Technology

KONGSBERG offers a range of different positioning solutions for use in DP operations. The XPR 100 is complementary to other solutions technology-wise and incorporates decades of experience and application understanding.
