Positioning, Navigation, & Timing – How Crucial in Marine Operations?

In modern navigation systems, the “Positioning, Navigation, and Timing” are very crucial elements that affect the ship’s overall undertaking. 

 Positioning, Navigation, & Timing – these three factors are handled together with a chart of geographic area and other data such as traffic or weather information. These elements are employed in modern voyage systems in vessels for very important purposes.

  • Positioning is an aspect used to accurately determine the location or direction in reference to a  standard geodetic structure.

  • Through Navigation, searching ways from one place to another is more feasible. Essentially, it is the capacity to identify the current and wanted position. And, to be able to apply adjustments to orientation, course, and speed of the vessel in order to achieve the desired position anywhere around the globe.

  • Timing is an essential feature that supplies precise time to harmonize complex system. It is the potentiality to collect and sustain an accurate or clear-cut time from a standard coordinated universal time. That is anywhere around the globe and within the user-defined well-timed parameters.

Positioning, Navigation, and Timing or PNT is employed basically in consolidation with the map data and other statistics. Through this, there is a more trendy and perceptible service – the contemporary navigation structure, which is better known as the GPS or Global Positioning System.

Sailing from one point to another with safety and efficiency is undeniably detracting to the marine field. This virtually makes Positioning, Navigation, and Timing facilities and automation an integral part of the maritime industry.

What is Resilient PNT of Orolia?

The fusion of GNSS or Global Navigation Satellite System and the complementary PNT Technology makes up the “Resilient Positioning, Navigation, & Timing of Orolia.

Orolia believes that the globe’s most demanding applications bet on real-time, systematic, dependable, and resilient Positioning, Navigation, & Timing.
