The CyScan AS sensor is a high performance local position reference sensor specifically engineered for marine Dynamic Positioning (DP) applications.
The sensor accurately measures the range and bearing to retro-reflective targets allowing for the calculation of vessel position and heading making it ideal for station keeping, or for accurately moving a vessel.
Absolute Signature (AS) resolves long-standing, common industry challenges by providing an improved performance during target identification, acquisition and tracking.
The CyScan system is suitable for applications which use fixed structures such as:
The CyScan system is also suitable for DP applications with mobile structures such as:
Absolute Signature Technology Benefits:
The only purpose built prism designed for the offshore marine environment:
Prisms are glass retro-reflectors that reflect a much higher percentage of the incident light giving the DP sensor (of any manufacturer) a much greater range. The AS Prism has design features to provide prism protection, high target visibility and varied flexible mounting options to allow for wider and easier customer installations.
Robust Design Features:
You will require a CyScan AS sensor and an AS prism.
Yes, CyScan AS will still detect existing reflectors of all types and report them as ‘non-AS’ targets in the dashboard user interface.
Guidance Marine have been supplying the AS prism well ahead of launch of the sensor to ensure maximum coverage.
Multi-target tracking supports adding additional reflectors ‘on the fly’ without interrupting DP feed. This is particularly useful if one target becomes obscured due to personnel or crane activity.
The CyScan Dashboard has been logically structured and carefully designed to provide a clear intuitive interface that maximises the opportunities of multi-touch user control and touch screen technology. The innovative user interface enables DPOs to use CyScan safely and effectively whilst providing optimum positioning performance.
The user interface is common across all four sensors, to aid productivity and reduce cost of ownership.
