Long-range relative positioning

XPR is a microwave-based solution developed for DP applications in need of long-range relative positioning. With no moving parts and with its compact and lightweight design, installation is quick and easy

Optimized for Dynamic Positioning

XPR can be deployed as an omni directional system utilising several sensor units. This provides an extended operational area of up to 280°, as well as avoidance of blind angles, depending on the construction and operation. The application software makes configuration and monitoring of the XPR operation easy and effective. Interfaces to remote systems like Dynamic Positioning can either be serial line or Ethernet based. XPR is designed to fill the need specified 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 performs a check and verification of the system to secure a safe and efficient operation. The XPR 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 is complementary to other solutions technology-wise and incorporates decades of experience and application understanding. XPR Ex LP is suited for installation in hazardious locations where there may be an explosive mixture of flammable gases belonging to gas group II B and/or II A. XPR Ex LP can be installed in an Ex zone 2.
