The Helideck Monitoring System (HMS) is used to analyse helideck motion during helicopter landings to improve safety in hostile weather conditions. The HMS monitors helideck attitude and vertical velocity, wind speed and direction, air temperature and barometric pressure and presents this information to indicate landing conditions. The HMS is typically used offshore on floating production and storage vessels (FPSO) and seismic vessels.
WEB HMS 200
KONGSBERG offers an online Web service with live vessel data from HMS 200 installations connected through a web client. The Web HMS 200 service is developed to assist helicopter operators to plan the flight prior to take-off from the heliport. The Web HMS 200 is a web client that can monitor motion and weather data in real-time from a HMS 200 system installed and running onboard a vessel. The service is based on an annual fee.
