Differential Position Sensors - DPS

We have delivered quality, reliable and accurate position reference sensors since the beginning of commercial satellite navigation in the mid 1990s. From the start, our systems have been developed in close collaboration with the most demanding industry leaders, from ship designers and builders, to owners, operators and regulators. This combination of experience and expertise sets KONGSBERG DPS systems apart.

Our Differential Positioning Sensor - DPS are intended for use in applications demanding reliable, accurate and quality-controlled position and velocity. We focus on quality and our proven technology guarantees performance and reliability. Our systems have, in many cases, become the de facto industry standard, and we are proud to be a preferred supplier to shipowners and operators around the world.

Innovation

Always in close collaboration with industry leaders, we continuously refine and revitalise our product line, bringing tomorrow’s solutions to the market today. KONGSBERG is a trusted partner for research and regulatory institutions world-wide, playing an active role in the development of state-of-the-art solutions for use in a wide range of applications.

Multiple requirements, one solution

The selection, installation, operation and maintenance of a reference system involves meeting the requirements of many different stakeholders in the value chain. We are dedicated to satisfying these multiple needs, while meeting or exceeding specialist demands.

SBAS accuracy < 1 m
Roll/Pitch acc. 0.01 RMS
Inertial aided GNSS Solution. DPS 4D combines the latest achievements in advanced GPS and GLONASS technology aided by a high performance IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit). DPS 4D effectively combats common mode errors occasionally observed when using two or more GNSS based systems.
DPS 5D GPS/GLONASS L1/L2 & SBAS receiver
RTK accuracy 1 cm + 1.6 ppm RMS
High precision accuracy 0.1 m
DGNSS accuracy < 1 m
SBAS accuracy < 1 m
Roll/Pitch acc. 0.01 RMS
DPS 5D provides a superior solution to the most challenging installations. The unmatched all-in-one package addresses the extremes of accuracy and reliability. In addition to providing precise positioning, DPS 5D also offers precise GNSS based heading. The dual GNSS receiver solution together with the INS integration 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.
