The Dynamic Positioning Systems, or DPS, is the system which is designed and installed on board vessels to keep these automatically in position with the assistance of the active thrusts. The system utilizes thrusters, rudders, and propellers to withstand the external forces like the wind or waves.
Dynamic positioning was first used in the 1960-es and has since that been improved to better serve the offshore industry. This video is demonstrating the application of the DP systems. In fact, the intention was to provide trainees with some general idea of what the dynamic positioning systems are without getting into technical details related to their construction, operating principles and arrangement.
All of these you may find in the publications and videos on the website while this particular video was prepared just to give a picture of the DP system.
