DP Trials Report Now Available

  16/11/2011
As befits the 50th anniversary of the advent of dynamic positioning (DP), the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA, UK) has turned the spotlight on this technology. Earlier this year, ‘Guidance for developing and conducting annual DP trials programmes for DP vessels' (IMCA M 190) was published. Now a complementary publication ‘Example of an Annual DP Trials Report' (IMCA M 212) is available for free download from the IMCA website.
 

IMCA M 190 describes the development, conduct and management of annual DP trials programmes for all types of vessels equipped with DP systems meeting the requirements of International Maritime Organization (IMO) equipment classes 1, 2 or 3. The new slim volume, IMCA M 212, assists in the completion of these reports with worked examples, reflecting the guidance in IMCA M 190. Printed copies are available at GBP2.50 for members and GBP5.00 for non-members (plus 20% for delivery outside Europe).

How to Use QPS' Qimera to Validate Processed Point Files

QPS Qimera processing software has been released earlier this year. To demonstrate the capabilities, this video shows how to load processed point files into a Qimera Project. It explains what processed point files are; how to specify the coordinate system of the project and the source files; how to create a Dynamic Surface from processed point files and how to change the dynamic surface and adjust the colour map to aid data editing and validation.
