DPS i3

Position sensor

By the introduction of the DPS i-series, 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.

Sensors Teaming Up for Increased Operational Efficiency

An unmatched integration of the latest within multi-GNSS technology and KONGSBERG’s unique motion gyro compass (MGC™) facilitate the possibility to operate with no additional augmentation services without compromising on DP performance. The DPS i-series is fully prepared to utilize differential corrections, SBAS and Galileo HAS services when required. DPS i3 utilizes data from GPS and Galileo.

Designed for Robust Performance

The integration between GNSS and INS ensures a continuous position solution by bridging gaps in the GNSS reception and increasing position stability in periods with limited GNSS availability due to masking, scintillation and interference. GNSS and INS are perfectly matched as they overcome each others limitations. Using both systems is superior to using either system alone. RAIM (Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring) extended by data from the INS provides ultimate reliability of the position and velocity data under difficult GNSS conditions.

Scalable and Expandable Solution

The flexible design of the DPS i-series 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 multiple DPS systems and MGC/MRU sensors will enable precise heading determination world wide and provide spoofing detection capabilities. The DPS i-series may utilize existing or dedicated MGC or MRU sensors for the integration.
