Please select your winner:

1 Guidance Marine – CyScan AS

Guidance Marine has introduced a new version of its laser position reference system CyScan, CyScan AS, which uses ‘Absolute Signature’ technology to resolve long-standing, common industry challenges with false reflections and authenticate target detection.

2 Kongsberg – DPS integrated reference solution

Kongsberg has combined satellite positioning and inertial technology to create an integrated reference solution for dynamic positioning applications. DPS i2 and DPS i4 use signals from global navigation satellite systems, such as GPS and Russia’s Glonass, fused with information from inertial sensors.

In 2017, Wärtsilä successfully tested remote controlled operation of a platform supply vessel in the North Sea using a satellite link from California. The tests, which involved driving the vessel through a sequence of manoeuvres using a combination of dynamic positioning and manual joystick control, were carried out in collaboration with GulfMark Offshore.
