Fanbeam 5 Data Sheet

Fanbeam pioneered the use of laser technology to support swift and accurate laser radar dynamic positioning. The Fanbeam 5 Laser Radar System works by sending out an invisible laser beam from the Fanbeam 5 unit, which is usually mounted over the aft of the vessel. This laser beam is reflected from a specifically designed Reflector 6 to 16 way Prism set target mounted on the installation, and received back into the Fanbeam 5 Laser Radar System unit.

It’s the combined design of our targets, Fanbeam 5 Laser Radar System unit, software and interface that make Fanbeam the preferred laser-based reference position system. Our range of data ouputs, and the experience of fleets in combining Fanbeam with a range of other sensors and dynamic positioning systems, make it ideal either for holding a vessel in station, or for moving a vessel with high levels of accuracy.

Fanbeam 5 software, installed on the DNV Type-approved embedded PC, is designed to give DPOs the data they need to act swiftly and with confidence, while allowing for a high degree of personalisation, through filters and interface setup. In addition to target-acquisition and tracking benefits, Fanbeam’s software and interface speed up operations.
