|IVCS 2000 Series Integrated Vessel Control Systems|
Integrated Navigation Display
The IVCS 2000 DP System holds the vessel in position by utilizing position reference sensors (such as GPS / DGPS receivers, fan beam Laser radar or acoustic positioning). Combined with gyro heading, wind angle, wind speed, roll and pitch sensors, this information is processed by a computerized mathematical model of the vessel which allocates proportional commands to thrusters, rudders and propellers, as required to hold position. Sensor signals are continually monitored and adaptively processed to optimize accuracy. Aside from automatically holding position there are additional operating modes which allow automatic holding in one axis with manual control in the other axis, changing position, joystick control in which thrusters are computer controlled to manually hold position, autopilot mode, autopilot with track following, interface to ECDIS electronic chartplotting, manual steering control, manual thruster control, ROV follow, pipe laying, cable laying, dredging, etc.
