Dynamic positioning system (DPS) for ships
Praxis Automation Technology
The Mega-Guard Dynamic Positioning System (DP) automatically controls a
vessel's heading and position by activating thrusters based upon data
as received from position reference systems, gyrocompasses, wind sensors
and motion reference units. The Auto Track mode allows the ship to move along a pre-defined track at low speed as defined by the operator.
The Mega-Guard Joystick Control System (JC) is a basic version of the Mega-Guard DP system and allows the operator to automatically control the
heading and manually position the vessel based upon data as received
from gyrocompasses and wind sensors.
