ship dynamic positioning system (DPS)
The cPos - DP is a single system that is designed to meet requirements for IMO Equipment class 1 and DP related notations from all major classification societies, e.g. DNVGL, ABS and CCS.
MODES AND FUNCTIONS
The system offers several modes that enables full vessel control for different types of operations:
Joystick mode: Allows the operator to control the vessel’s position and heading manually by a Joystick.
Auto Heading mode: The DP control system will automatically maintain the required vessel heading.
Auto Position mode: The DP system will automatically maintain the required position and heading.
Follow Target mode (optional): Enables the vessel to automatically follow a moving target.
Trackline mode (optional): Makes the vessel follow a specified track line. This mode is designed for marine operations and is not intended for navigation purpose.
Autopilot mode (optional): Enables the vessel to steer automatically on a predefined heading. For the cPos - DP Autopilot to be approved in accordance with EU MED as an automatic heading control device at least one of the operator stations must be located at the conning position.
The cPos - DP user interface is designed for efficient and safe operation of the system. Emphasis has been placed on logical operation, effective presentation of relevant information and user-friendliness. This combined with an extensive alert system and various analysis tools provides the operator with excellent situation awareness.
