Student Challenge: Control Airship Using Offshore DP Technology

has introduced a new student project called 'Zeppaloon' which provides students with the opportunity to resolve a complex technological task during the summer months of 2014. The assignment for the 'Zeppaloon' project is to develop a scaled unmanned airship to simulate the dynamic positioning technology that KONGSBERG uses to operate offshore vessels in challenging conditions. The challenge involves developing a prototype with sub systems such as; software, sensors and reference systems, thruster and power management and control algorithms. The prototype must be able to operate in the same
