Berthing Aid System
Oceanstar™ is an onboard decision support system that enhances berthing operation and vessel navigation in confined waters. The system shows position and movement within, or relative to, predefined corridors or quaysides and provides GNSS quality data.
OceanstarTM uses high performance global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) to improve navigational safety and reduce operating costs.
Simple to install and suitable for all kinds of large commercial vessels, our twin GNSS systems are installed fore and aft to build a complete picture of vessel movement.
Combined GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo data, together with sophisticated positioning technology, help to achieve decimetre level accuracy which is suitable for integration with the latest bridge systems and electronic charts.
- ‘Wheel Mark’ certification for transmitting heading device THD, dual axis speed log SDMD, rate of turn indicator ROT, GNSS device
- Improved navigational safety
- Helps to lower operating costs
- Reduction in wasted fuel and environmental footprint
- Simple, clear data displays integrated into bridge systems
