The Onboard wave radar, mostly installed at the helideck, bow or bridge of the ship, measures the distance to the water surface. The distances measured are compensated for the heaving, pitching and rolling motion of the radar. Thanks to a highly sensitive motion sensor is incorporated into the radar unit. The WaveGuide Onboard measures the waves the ship actually has to endure.
The radar measures the distance to the water surface 10 times per second. The radar itself facilitates data acquisition, data processing, data presentation and remote service. Data will be internally stored on the device and distributed over the network. Any device connected to the (private) network can access the web-based user interface.
