Static Heading, Pitch and Roll Calibration / Verification
Our GPS / Glonass-based heading and pitch system enables continuous vessel heading device monitoring. In combination with special developed software, it is a simple way of checking the heading devices while the vessel is alongside.
It is independent of onshore reference points because our GNSS antennas are onboard the vessel. The simultaneously logged data from the vessel and our GNSS system are imported to the Parker AttCon software. Report is issued on site soon after the survey is completed. Prior to this survey, a common coordinate reference system is established onboard. Read more.
The results are presented as figures and graphs. The survey personnel onboard can immediately verify the results and, if they wish, enter the obtained C-O values into the vessel system. If necessary, a new verification survey can be carried out immediately.
Accuracy expectations depend mainly on antenna positions, undiscovered time discrepancies and multipath. Expected accuracy: Heading 0.23º/L RMS, roll/pitch 0.46º/L RMS, where L is antenna separation in meters.
