Motion Solution for Marine Applications

CodaOctopus and Trimble have introduced on 9 April during Ocean Business an integrated position, heading and attitude solution for marine-based applications. Designed in a compact form for rapid deployment, the F175-T1 and F175-T2 systems combine Trimble Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers and CodaOctopus inertial technology. By tightly coupling the raw GNSS outputs from any Trimble GNSS receiver with the high-grade Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) from CodaOctopus, the F175-T1 and F175-T2 systems deliver performance at an affordable price for a host of marine applications including imaging, mapping, security, construction and survey. To find out more about the F175-T1 and F175-T2... (read more)

Advanced Position Reference System

Kongsberg Seatex has developed a new advanced position reference system for use in various applications, including vessel-to-vessel and vessel-to-FPSO applications, specifically in the offshore sector. RADius is a short distance reference system designed to fill the needs specified by the IMO for DP class 2 vessels. RADius has been developed based on solid-state technology and features no moving parts. The system consists of transponders installed as targets (platform/FPSO) and interrogators on, for example, the supply vessel. The system is capable of providing accurate readings, optimised for a signal range of 500m and below. Close-quarter operations such as alongside loading and... (read more)

Vessel Motion Monitoring Systems for Wind Farms

OSIL, UK, has announced the launch of a Vessel Motion Monitoring System (VMMS), a system designed to monitor motion of a vessel in order to increase safety of transfers during offshore wind farm operations. With a second generation 6 DoF (Degrees of Freedom) motion sensor, the Vessel Motion Monitoring System monitors safety thresholds for heading, heave, pitch, roll, sway and yaw. This portable, battery powered monitoring system has a removable hard disk for data retrieval, and is programmed to display a red signal to indicate when it is unsafe to transfer because safety thresholds have been exceeded. The Vessel Motion... (read more)
