The ShuttlePilot Remote is carried on board the vessel being manoeuvred (often a tanker)
The ShuttlePilot Remote (SPR) is a radio modem receiver that receives data (over a radio link) from the ShuttlePilot Fixed (on the FPSO) and ShuttlePilot Portable (on the tanker and/or OSV's).
It wirelessly transmits this position, ROT and Heading data to the users laptop/tablet to create a real-time image of the vessel and its vicinity.
It also allows the Emergency Shut Down of pumping operation and/or control of the start & stop of pumping operations by sending a signal to the control room on the FPSO.
