Welcome to the RadaScan position reference sensor for dynamic positioning and other vessel control applications. RadaScan is a high accuracy radar based sensor that provides positional information to allow automated approach and/or station keeping relative to a structure or vessel. The structure or vessel must be equipped with one or more retro-reflective RadaScan transponders/targets. RadaScan has been designed for permanent installation and quick/easy operation. A RadaScan system comprises of 3 major components as follows: - The RadaScan Sensor. A scanning transceiver unit with integral power supply and processing electronics for installation in a prominent external location in order to view available transponder. The Sensor is connected to the vessel DP system by a serial RS422 or Ethernet link. - The RadaScan Console. A system control and display application running under Microsoft Windows XP on a standard PC. This allows full control of the system together with graphical and data display of system status. An Ethernet link connects the Sensor to the console PC. - RadaScan Transponder/Target. A passive self contained battery powered electronics module for temporary, semi-permanent or permanent installation on the target vessel. RadaScan transponders are ATEX certified as intrinsically safe.
