C-Nav®, a division of C & C Technologies an Oceaneering International Company™ providing dynamic DGNSS Precise Point Positioning systems, has introduced a newly upgraded version of its C-Scape software.
C-Scape provides independent, real-time monitoring of dynamic positioning (DP) systems, while simultaneously providing operations overview of other vessels infield and subsea infrastructures via multilayer AutoCAD files. C-Scape blends multiple sensor inputs for unparalleled position quality assurance/quality control and is suitable for most dynamically positioned vessels, including drilling rigs and ships.
The updated software includes enhanced control functions for all C-Nav receivers, improved AutoCAD support and advanced graphics capabilities. Enhancements, such as the SIMOPS feature, add an additional safety layer to operations, and the graphics display can be used with manual controls in the unlikely event of total failure of the DP system. The software requires minimal installation and operation training; a simulator device is available for crew training.
“Our goal, at C-Nav, is to deliver the most dynamic and accurate positioning hardware and software products available on the market,” said Russell Morton, C-Nav systems development manager, C&C Technologies. “The updates to the C-Scape software were developed to meet the needs of today’s position reference systems and were designed to provide our customers with a more flexible, reliable and user-friendly version of the system.”
