This manual was developed by the manufacturer to provide a technical overview and clear description of the system principles including the operation instructions for the ICVS, standing for the Integrated Vessel Control System. The NAVIS IVCS 2000 is a Windows NT based dynamic positioning system. PLC input/output modules and serial ports for data input/output. Apart from the general introduction to the system, the chapters of this publication are providing the users with the info about the operator interface, control modes and functions, system messages, display views, operational procedures, alarm message list, i.e. all information required to deal with the system.
The cJoy wing terminal - cJoy WT (cWing) - has been designed and developed to serve as a remote joystick terminal in stand-alone joystick systems (cJoy) and DPS, i.e. dynamic positioning systems (cPos and K-Pos). The wing terminal provides all necessary facilities for manual joystick and automatic heading operations, and is designed for installation in an outside environment. The layout of the wing terminal panel is divided into three main areas where controls and indicators are arranged according to their function. A must-have document for all personnel directly involved in the operation and maintenance of the subject system.
The operator manual for the K-POS RAM - subject system allows to optimize the position of the ship during the drilling operations. The manual has been arranged in five sections. The first section provides the introduction to the system and description of its components and functions. The second section contains the established operating procedures including settings, drilling configuration and display options etc., while the third sections is dedicated to the displayed Riser Angle info. The two remaining sections of the manual are dealing with the system messages and special features of the simulator/trainer.
In the Auto Track mode, the vessel accurately follows a predefined track, described by a set of waypoints. The system controls the vessel to minimize the deviation from the track (cross-track error). The Auto Track mode covers low speed, high speed and move-up operations using different strategies for speed and heading control. In the Auto Track (low speed) mode, all the available thrusters are used to provide full position and heading control. This strategy gives high-accuracy position control and allows full freedom in selecting the vessel heading, but its use is limited to speeds up to approximately three knots. This limit depends on the shape of the vessel's hull and the configuration of the propulsion system. The speed along the track is controlled very accurately with the possibility of running as slowly as a few centimetres per second. In the Auto Track (high speed) mode, the vessel heading is controlled (by default using rudder or thruster azimuth control, but may also apply bow thruster assistance depending on speed) to minimize the cross-track error while maintaining the required speed. This strategy is suitable at normal cruising speeds, above 3 to 4 knots. When moving slowly in high speed tracking mode, additional thrusters may be used to assist in controlling the vessel heading. hi the Auro Track (move-up) mode, you can move the vessel a specified distance along the track. All the thrusters may be used to provide full position and heading control. The vessel stays on the track in a fixed position until you initiate a move-up.
A K-Pos system with Follow Target mode has one of two available configurations: - Follow Single Mobile Target; - Follow Multiple Mobile Targets. Follow Single Mobile Target enables the ships to automatically follow the moving targets and keeps the vessel within a "position window" relative to the targets. The moving target must be equipped with a mobile reference transponder or laser reflector in order for the K-Pos system to monitor its relative position. If, for example, the moving target is ROV, then the ship shall be equipped with the HPR, standing for the Hydroacoustic Position Reference system. In addition to a mobile reference transponder on the target, an additional fixed position-reference system is required, such as DGPS or a fixed transponder deployed on the seabed. You can define a circle of operation within which the target can move without causing the ship to move. The vessel only moves when the target reaches the boundary of this circle. The radius of this circle (the "reaction radius") can be up to 1000 m.
The redundant Icon DP 2 system is based on a triple controller solution with a redundant fibre-optic network. Interface to sensors and position reference systems, power system and thruster system are split into logical groups, based on class requirements and system segregation. The triple redundant controller solution features a two-out-of-three voting principle. In case of controller failure and voting rejection, the operator does not have to intervene. The remaining two controllers are unaffected and continue the operation. The redundant network solution handles network failures locally on network level. The connected nodes do not need special functionality to handle network redundancy. With the DP system integrity preserved, the DP network is separated from networks of other applications. The DP cabinets, operator stations, sensors and position reference systems are dual powered from the redundant UPS system.

This volume will describe the technical features of the DPT 3500 system with DP2 Class certification. The system is a member of the SMC family configured for use as autopilot, trackpilot, speedpilot and DPT system. The DPT 3500 system is a product of the Imtech Marine & Offshore UniMacs 3000s Integrated Bridge System series. The system functionality can be addressed by interfaces like Conning 3500 and DPT 3500 panel. Any DPT 3500 system is forming a part of the propulsion/steering control architecture of a ship. Such architecture generally differs from ship to ship, depending on the number of control positions, available actuators, and the manual control components.
