/ Drill Rig Positioning

Drill Rig Positioning


A drillship is a maritime vessel that has been fitted with drilling apparatus. It is most often used for exploratory drilling of new oil or gas wells in deep water but can also be used for scientific drilling. These rigs are either anchored temporarily or moored permanently. NavCom’s Drill Rig positioning solutions provide accurate positioning, without the need for a base station.


The SF-3050 for Drill Rig Positioning Applications

Coupled with our StarFire™ subscription service, the SF-3050 delivers 5 cm position fixes without the use of a base station receiver. Add our RTK option and an external radio capable of receiving RTK corrections from a base station, and the SF-3050 is able to perform RTK-level surveys for unsurpassed accuracy. Onboard memory (2GB) and a geodetic-quality antenna enable millimeter-level accuracy from post-processing. The SF-3050’s compact and rugged form factor is ideal for offshore marine applications. The flexibility of the SF-3050 will enable you to adapt to any application, and will give you the confidence to get the job done.
