Non-Differential Position Sensors
By the introduction of DPS i2 and DPS i4, 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.
Increased operational efficiency
Inertial technology combined with the latest multi-constellation GNSS technology enables a cost efficient and reliable position reference solution, where no additional augmentation service is required. Still DPS i2 and DPS i4 are fully capable to utilize differential corrections and SBAS services where required. With the ready-to-use possibility of remote service and diagnostics, the DPS i2 and DPS i4 product line is a true solution for the future, benefiting from the KONGSBERG global support service. Cases that previously required a visit from a service engineer, may now be resolved remotely.
The flexible design of the DPS i2 / DPS i4 product line 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 DPS i2, DPS i4 and MRU/MGC sensors will, in addition to redundancy, enable precise heading determination and spoofing detection capabilities. DPS i2 / DPS i4 may utilize existing or dedicated MGC or MRU sensors for the integration.
Adaptive operational environment
DPS i2 and DPS i4 have the same intuitive and easy-to-use graphical user interface as the recognized KONGSBERG DPS series, 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. Multiple layers of information give the DP operator unmatched opportunities for a customized, operation-specific visual presentation.
