IEI provides maritime professionals and marine-grade panel PCs and monitors and embedded box that use leading technologies and reliable designs which are perfect for applications on the dock, on the open deck, or in the control room or bridge. Dynamic Positioning System (DPS) is a closed-loop control system. It is driven by the control system of the ship to counteract the environmental forces to the ship, such as wind, waves and ocean currents. This mechanism could make ship remain in the position on the sea. DPS precisely calculates the propellant force by continuously monitoring the ship position deviation and analyzing the natural forces which could affect ship’s navigation direction. This process could make the ship remain in the correct position and maintain the right direction. DPS is commonly used at various marine applications, such as subsea engineering work, underwater salvage, marine resources survey, marine engineering lifting, marine engineering umbilical laying, deep diving support, underwater engineering operations and marine engineering comprehensive test. DPS consists of measurement systems, control systems, power systems and propulsion systems, and other components. DPS possesses many functions which include maintaining the specified location, targeting, automatic searching for the best bow position, turning point tracking, ROV automatic tracking, changing the center of rotation, automatic navigation, parallel movement and other functions. Roll Yaw Pitch Heave The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has announced that Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) should be implemented into all the vessels by July 2018. Both new ships and existing ships should follow this regulation according to the timetable. The bridge systems are complicated and usually composed of multiple sub-systems. ECDIS clearly defines and regulates all the devices and connections, which include data collection, data communication and color calibration. Therefore, this is a huge opportunity for SI and hardware anufacturers. Marine Panel PC-2017-V10 System Requirements of DPS: Large number of native serial interfaces Extremely durable and reliable
