Seaforth has extensive experience with the installation and operation of navigation and positioning system(s) for vessel operations. These operations include:
- Offshore drilling platform positioning
- Marine cable installation/repair
- USBL arrays
- Topographic & geodetic surveys
- ROV inspection surveys
Seaforth utilises a comprehensive integrated navigation system (INS) which provides a common base for all vessel mounted equipment and remote vessel(s). The INS allows integration with Dynamic Positioning (DP) systems, USBL arrays and deployed marine equipment (ROV, divers, geophysical & geotechnical equipment); providing offsets and corrected vessel positions in real time.
