A Targetless Future
Guidance Marine is the first company to offer a local DP Position Reference Sensor (PRS) solution that removes the requirement for targets altogether. The system consists of a minimum of 2 RangeGuard Monopole sensors connected to a control unit which in turn is connected to the bridge and the DP system of the vessel. The small lightweight radar sensors are mounted onto the side of the vessel pointing in the direction of the transition piece and simple geometry determines the range and relative position of the vessel.
Windea La Cour
Bernhard Schulte have installed a full DP enabled system on their SOV Windea a Cour. Sensors were installed on the vessel at the yard on the starboard side - the same side as the motion compensated gangway.
