Using a theodolite aboard


Using a theodolite aboard a ship afloat is fully possible. But instead of gravity, the MRP (datum plate) should be used as the reference. This is obtained by co-planing the theodolite to the MRP.


The Aligner 308 enables you to co-plane the theodolite with the MRP by the use of a Tilt Sensor Unit mounted on the theodolite. The dual-inclinometer based Tilt Sensor Units of the Aligner 308 makes this task incomparably easy, fast and accurate.

Alignment Verification, alongside -
- a real money saver  

Having made the alignment corrections in accordance to the alignment measurement results, the weapon system is ready for test. The standard approach for this is to make sea trials, using camera systems for target tracking.


However, the Aligner 308 provides a unique set of functions for alignment verification while still in harbor, alongside. These features constitute fast and efficient checking of most of the made alignments. Errors in the weapon system, erroneous alignment corrections, etc., can thus be found without taking the time, efforts and expenses for a sea trial.



Built-in calibration functions


As any high quality measurment tool, the Aligner 308 needs to be calibrated from time to time. Built-in step-by-step guided calibration functions enables calibration made by customer at any time.


Specially designed calibration tools that simplifies and supports calibration are provided as options.
