The marine division of Guidance Navigation, Guidance Marine, has recently held its second successful Dynamic Positioning (DP) sensors technologies workshop in conjunction with Sonardyne and Veripos. Held jointly in Singapore, industry experts, Captains and DPOs attended to review current state-of-the-art Position Monitoring Equipment (PME) solutions and to discuss the industry’s future requirements.

Discussions throughout the day looked at the time-saving benefits and independencey offered by acoustically aided inertial navigation solutions, the importance of reference sensor placement for optimal performance and reducing operational risk. The afternoon was dedicated to highly-interactive, hands-on sessions looking at equipment usability and future technologies which generated much feedback about general concepts of operation and requirements for current and upcoming projects.

“As expected our second joint event with Sonardyne and Veripos was as well received as the first,” said Andrew Stead, Head of Sales for Guidance Marine. “The mixture of hands on learning along with the opportunity to get their product development views directly represented was very popular with our customers. Guidance Marine has fount these customer engagement opportunities invaluable and we return from Singapore with some terrific ideas for improving our positioning offering further. I look forward to repeating the exercise in Norway next year.”
