GNSS Glove Ship Guidance Management System

Highly Accurate Position Recording, Usable with a Variety of Devices

GPGlove is a system which, by using position data from RTK-GNSS, DGNSS, DGNSS compasses, and automatic tracking total stations, displays the current locations of ships performing works operations (grab dredgers, sand spreaders etc.) on a computer screen, guides the ship to the target site, and also carries out recording.

Mainly, the system can guide ships to target points for reef installations and recording of installation positions, as well as guidance to, and recording of, dredging sites. In addition, the screen showing the progress of operations and recorded data can be printed out.

By using a wireless LAN, the same screen can be viewed and used for operations, not only in the boom control room, but also in locations used for winch operations, such as the bridge, and the system can be configured using devices selected to meet the needs of the user’s work operations.
