This is the officially published user manual for the FanBeam system which has been specifically designed to provide the repetitive and accurate positioning and also tracking of the marine ships together with the static/semi-static anchored facilities. The documents starts with the short technical description of the system and its major applications.

The technical specifications of this system have also been provided; the installation tips cover all mechanical/electrical matters, mounting etc. The operation and maintenance are deal with in the next chapters of the doc covering both routine system maintenance and instructions on the fault finding. The remainder of the title addresses the data output formats.

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.

The DP Capability and Motion Prediction Analysis functions are used to analyse and predict operational margins for your vessel and the effects of single-point failures. The basis for the analyses is the PRESENT environmental conditions (relative to the vessel heading) specified by the operator.

Due to the cyclic nature of the analysis program, i.e. that the analysis is run automatically at preset intervals, you should evaluate the PRESENT environmental conditions regularly, and input new values if they have changed significantly. Be aware that: - All directions are to be specified relative to compass north (TRUE NORTH); - The sea current amplitude is "real" current and not "DP" current. Both the DP Capability Analysis and the Motion Prediction Analysis functions can be run in On-line or Off-line mode.

When On-line Running mode is selected, online DP variables are used to adjust the calculations. Analyses are performed cyclically (usually every five minutes), provided the system has first settled for at least 2.5 minutes in Auto Position mode and with statuses PRESENT HEADING and PRESENT POSITION. These statuses are indicated on the status bar at the bottom of the screen. When the above stated conditions are met. the operator can also start a new analysis at any time.

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.

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.

Here is the seventh release of the official operator's manual for the K-POS stand-alone simulator developed by the Kongsberg specialists, intended to provide all necessary info. The publication starts with the history of the document, followed with the general overview providing required introductory information about this system, its configuration and main functions.

Then the separate chapter comes containing the operating procedures. The last section of the paper is dealing with the simulator settings including the important technical restrictions, dialog box and noise settings of the simulator.

The content has been worked out intending as a reference for the K-POS operators. This manual commences with a concise Glossary of terms/abbreviations used throughout the paper plus in all relevant documents. This volume will provide system users with required theoretical background and the user interface.

It covers technical aspects of the K-POS, e.g. settings and calibration of the joystick, different messages including diagnostics, alarms and operational checks, sensors including VRS, speed, draught and rate-of-turn sensors, gyrocompasses, instructions on changing the setpoints of the ship's position and heading, controllers, thrusters, power systems etc.
