GPS systems

The Global Positioning System (GPS) has changed maritime operations for the better. With it, navigation is easier than ever. Thick fog or heavy rain do not disturb GPS and therefore, you can travel through any weather. With GPS, you find your way around and get an overview of the area you are traveling through. To plan your route, you can set thousands of waypoints. The integrated Satellite-based Augmentation System (SBAS) technology is known for great reliability and sends current position data all day long. Do you want to make your life on the vessel easier?

GPS systems for ships

As a ship’s captain, you have to know the exact position of your vessel while you are operating it in open sea or narrow waterways and harbours. GPS includes high precision paired with reliability and therefore provides you with the information you require. If you want an even higher precision, you can combine it with other navigation systems from our shop like plotters, GPS sensors, echo sounders, radars and others.

The GPS ensures the following factors and helps the vessel to reach its destination in the safest, timeliest and most economical way:

  • accurate positioning
  • speed measurement
  • direction of the vessel

For departures and arrivals in tight port areas, the accuracy of the GPS is even more critical. Therefore, it minimizes the risk of accidents and lessens the difficulty of maneuvers. To enhance your basic GPS signal, you can use Differential GPS (DGPS) that has a much higher precision and increased safety for the coverage of maritime operations. A lot of nations use DGPS, for example, to improve harbour navigation.

GPS for different purposes

Compared to the navigational purposes on most ships, GPS is used for a variety of purposes in the maritime environment:

  1. Underwater surveying
  2. Track fish
  3. Management of Maritime Port Facilities

Mariners and oceanographers use it for underwater surveying, buoy placement, as well as navigational hazard location and mapping. Furthermore, commercial fishing ships track fish swarms and can check the regulations beforehand.

Marine navigation is revolutionized by GPS and DGPS usage and begins to replace nautical paper charts. Thus, governments and industrial organizations work together to develop a performance standard for Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems.

In the sector of maritime port facilities, GPS connected with a geographic information system (GIS) leads to efficient management and the operation of automated container placements. Especially in the world’s largest port facilities, this is useful for a smooth procedure.

To track the entry and exit of containers in port areas, GPS shows the:

  • pick-up,
  • placement
  • and transfer of containers.

This has massively reduced the number of lost or misdirected containers and the costs that result from failures. Get your GPS system now at our shop and profit from all the benefits it offers to maritime travel.
