Experience superior navigation with the highly accurate heading and positioning performance available from HarbourPilot.
As a high precision Portable Pilot Unit, HarbourPilot provides marine pilots with reliable information, which is fully independent from ship's data thereby removing the vagaries of AIS data from the pilot plug, greatly improving port safety and efficiency. Correction options such as DGPS, RTK and Atlas correction services, are available to further augment its position accuracy.

The position accuracy of the HPL can be augmented further with RTK corrections via NTRIP.
HarbourPilot Lightweight can worko with NTRIP corrections to provide RTK level accuracy and integrate to the Electronic Charting System (ECS).
The NTRIP client is run on the users' LTE compatible display (laptop/tablet) and the obtained RTK corrections are used by the PPU to provide a position accuracy down to 2.5cm.
With the introduction of NTRIP, the reliable and stable performance of the PPU is improved further and it can provide excellent support for applications such as docking and berthing.
Users will require their ECS to have an NTRIP client (ECS such as Qastor & SEAiq are recommended) and a subscription to a local NTRIP server/ CORS network. The display laptop/tablet should have cellular connection capability (LTE).
