Step Out Positioning
If you already have known locations (structures or seabed frames) on the seabed, an inertial solution can easily be mobilized onto a vessel/ROV of opportunity and deployed to align at this location. Once aligned, the C-PINS system can then precisely navigate and deploy frames or markers to precisely position additional hardware on the seabed. In many field developments today, known structure coordinates with some form of receptacle exist in just about every area of the field. These known locations are all that is needed to align and put an inertial system to work. No need to deploy additional transponder frames, no array calibration time is needed, no large back deck or heave compensated crane is required. C-PINS enables accurate local positioning without any of the complexity of LBL arrays.
