JRC/Alphatron Marine has launched its new DynaPilot system developed in cooperation with Navis Engineering in Finland, with whom JRC has a strategic partnership to develop a highly innovative range of Ship Motion Control Systems.
The DynaPilot is based on the existing and already successful MFM autopilot which is installed on many ships. The MFM autopilot is a type-approved modular Heading and Track Control System (up to CAT-C) designed to fit the medium to larger merchant ships, including high speed crafts.
The DynaPilot is specially designed as a Motion Control System. The type approved Autopilot, Heading Control and Track Control System (in combination with JRC ECDIS JAN-72/9201), is extended to a vessel Motion Control System with a smart interface to the engine RPM and thrusters, allowing the operator to control the ship with a single joystick.
