Trelleborg launches its latest positioning technology

Trelleborg’s marine systems division has added to its SafePilot range for pilots and ports with the launch of SafePilot CAT MAX, a replacement for its SafePilot CAT III system for use in heading and positioning applications.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The dual antenna CAT MAX system consists of heading and positioning units which can communicate with each other and the pilot’s display via Wi-Fi, and includes an integrated six-axis gyro/motion sensor offering independent rate of turn, roll, and pitch data.

The system has been specifically designed for use in applications including the piloting of ultra large container vessels and LNG ships in confined waters and offshore operations.

“Piloting requires the safest, most efficient and reliable technology. It demands exceptional performance, ease of operation and high position accuracy to facilitate optimum approach, berthing and departure,” said Richard Hepworth, president of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation.

“The launch of the SafePilot CAT MAX is the latest example of our long-standing commitment to continually exploring ways in which we can further strengthen our navigation and piloting offering to ensure it delivers exactly that, and then some, in even the most demanding applications.”

The system offers a speed accuracy down to 1 cm/s and a heading accuracy down to 0.01°, with built-in UHF radio to facilitate data exchange between relevant parties.{/mprestriction}
