D-POS Taut Wire System and Spares
The Taut Wire System operates with relative-positioning Dynamic Positioning (DP) reference sensors that measure the angles and distance to a deployed weight on the seabed. The data outputs to a ships DP control system include across-ships angle (X), along ships angle (Y), and the wire length (Z). The DP System then computes the X,Y,Z into a position initially, then determines the vessels movement relative to the weight. All systems are designed and manufactured by Forum.
