With our in-house expertise and technology base, we are a world-leading sensor power house, with a complete range of position reference sensors. All developed for dynamic positioning over decades in close cooperation with our demanding customers.
The award-winning DPS i-series consists of the DPS i2, that utilizes GPS and GLONASS, and the DPS i4, that also includes Beidou and Galileo satellite infrastructure. Being able to operate without a subscription to correction services, DPS i-series is a new approach to DP operations that provides significant economic benefits.
Our ability to combine our core technologies and fuse sensors, creates award-winning solutions that in many cases sets the standard for the industry. We possess deep in-house technology knowledge, and our edge lies in the control of every component used in our solutions. There are no room for compromises.
Decades of operational experience and close partnership with the industry, has led to a range of unmatched solutions with different technologies, perfectly tailored for use in dynamic positioning applications. Our pride lies in the functionality that secures efficient and safe operations required by our customers.
Since the introduction of GNSS in the maritime domain, KONGSBERG has been in the forefront of defining the standards for offshore operations. We always endeavor ourselves to improve our offerings, and the unique commitment among our experienced staff secures evolvement in the future. The proven record of installations world-wide tells the story.
A selection of what existing clients says about our products
"The Bosporus Strait is well recognised as being a hazardous area for navigation. Despite the bridges and other obstacles, which actually interrupted other satellite-based reference systems onboard, we were able to reference our position continuously, only because we had DPS 4D. The availability of position data helps to improve safety and efficiency of operations and I'm confident that DPS 4D will enhance future navigation and manoeuvring operations for Leiv Eiriksson."
"SpotTrack performed during the whole operation without any interrupt or degradation, and was a vital asset during the operation. Based on the proven performance and stability of the solution, SpotTrack is the preferred laser-based relative positioning solution for Zakher Marine International Inc."
RADius is developed for applications in need for a robust and reliable relative positioning system. Many applications can benefit from RADius in operations, as there are different types of retro-reflective transponders, and different types of installation of the interrogators.
The XPR 100 is a microwave-based system, developed for DP applications in need of long-range relative positioning. With no moving parts and with its compact and lightweight design, installation is quick and agile.
Recognized by the industry as the leading solution for reliable DP reference sensor, blending all available GNSS infrastructure. A wide range of different models cover all requirements for positioning in any environment.
SpotTrack is a reference system for relative positioning in DP operations. The SpotTrack sensor is a robust, motion stabilised, rotating laser sensor, which measures range and bearing to one or several retro-reflective targets installed on the target platform or vessel.
DARPS is a DP position reference system tailor made for offshore loading operations. The DARPS system combines high-performance sensors for reliable and accurate absolute and relative positioning of two vessels such as a shuttle tanker and an FPSO/FSU.
