DPS i6

Position sensor

DPS i6 provides a superior solution to the most challenging installations. In addition to precise positioning, DPS i6 also offers precise GNSS based heading. The flexibility with regard to installation of the dual GNSS antennas ensures optimum tracking of multi-constellation satellite signals under all conditions.

Sensors Teaming Up for Multi-use

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 still fully prepared to utilize differential corrections, SBAS and Galileo HAS services when required. By using the MGC as the inertial sensor, a high-quality WheelMark gyro compass becomes a part of the solution. In addition, MGC can serve other on-board systems such as navigation equipment and other systems that require attitude data.

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.

Active Decision Support

The DPS i-series has an intuitive and easy-to-use graphical user interface 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. The DPS i-series is ready for K-IMS remote services for operational support and troubleshooting. Cases that previously required a visit from a service engineer, may now be resolved remotely.
