Helideck Monitoring System - HMS
The Helideck Monitoring System (HMS) is used to analyse helideck motion during helicopter landings to improve safety in hostile weather conditions. The HMS monitors helideck attitude and vertical velocity, wind speed and direction, air temperature and barometric pressure and presents this information to indicate landing conditions. The HMS is typically used offshore on floating production and storage vessels (FPSO) and seismic vessels.

The motion reference unit - MRU, with the aid of selected lever arms in the set-up procedures, enables total installation flexibility. The unit can be installed at the helideck, on the bridge or at any other suitable location on the vessel, the lever arm software makes it possible for the operator to set up the measuring point to be precisely at the centre of the helideck.
