C-Nav® Positioning Solutions

We solve positioning challenges by using proprietary differential global navigation satellite systems (DGNSSs).

Our dynamic Oceaneering® C-Nav® systems deliver precise point positioning (PPP) with worldwide accuracy of better than 5 cm horizontally and 15 cm vertically.* Unlike traditional DGNSS technology, our systems do not suffer from spatial decorrelation, thus providing the same accuracy anywhere in the world.

*At one sigma within adequate INMARSAT and global navigation satellite system (GNSS) satellite visibility

Precision Positioning Solutions

We offer a broad range of receiver options and subscription services. Our expansive hardware and software toolkit supports any navigation and positioning requirement.

We provide comprehensive QA/QC along with ring laser gyro inertial navigation systems and a mean sea surface (MSS) tide application, which combine for exceptional vertical precision and accuracy. Intuitive graphical interfaces and touch-screen displays are incorporated with these tools for simpler monitoring and control.

Installation and Repair

Our systems are user-friendly and easily installed. Engineers are on call 24/7 to answer your queries, undertake ship-fits, and perform installations. Our team is present to assist when an installation requires a specialist or qualified engineer to integrate DGNSS products with specialist bridge systems or dynamic positioning (DP) consoles.
We offer comprehensive repair and maintenance services for our entire product range.

Customer Training

When a workforce requires unique operations or maintenance training, our support staff is available to work with you to create a custom program meeting specific educational goals. Custom programs may include curriculum development, logistics support, and before/after skill benchmarking.

We offer factory courses in which participants learn more about the operation and maintenance of our products with an Oceaneering instructor at one of our six worldwide training locations.

Alternatively, an Oceaneering instructor can deliver product training at your facility, reducing travel costs.

Engineering and Integration

Our engineers and scientists develop and maintain a range of advanced positioning hardware and software solutions for the offshore community. For special applications, we offer tailored solutions for challenging situations and system integration.

Customer Access and Resources

We provide customers with convenient online access to a customer portal, help desk, reference guides, and other resources to help make the most of PPP products and services.

Company page Since our founding in the early 1960s, Oceaneering has expanded and grown globally to service several industries such as the offshore energy industry, defense, entertainment, material handling, aerospace, science, and renewable energy industries. In 1964, Mike Hughes and Johnny Johnson formed a Gulf of Mexico diving company called World Wide Divers. The company grew in response to increasing demand for their services and in 1969 merged with two other diving companies to form Oceaneering International, Inc. To solve the toughest challenges, we do things differently, creatively, and smarter. As your trusted partner, our unmatched experience and truly innovative portfolio of technologies and solutions give us the flexibility to adapt and evolve, regardless of market conditions. Our mission is to solve the unsolvable. We thrive by creating industry-changing technically creative solutions for the most complex operational challenges under water, on land, and in space. Our five core values establish a common culture and demonstrate what is most important for us as a company. Since the beginning, the company has transformed from a small regional diving company into a global provider of engineered products and services. Today, we develop products and services for use throughout the lifecycle of an offshore oilfield, from drilling to decommissioning. We operate the world's premier fleet of work class ROVs. Additionally, we are a leader in offshore oilfield maintenance services, umbilicals, subsea hardware, and tooling. We also serve the aerospace, defense, and theme park industries. Underpinning everything we do, safety is not only the foundation of our core values, but it is vital to our unmatched performance record and company culture. The industries we serve are as diverse as they are complex. Whether we are engineering deepwater umbilicals or developing robotics for aerospace applications, the safety and health of our employees, vendors, and customers is an integral part of our day-to-day business. If we are working, then our responsibility is to be working safely. Since our inception in 1964, we have placed a high value on employee safety—from diving services and subsea inspection to vessel-based installation operations. We have and will continue to evolve not only our health, safety, and environmental (HSE) processes, but those of the industries in which we work. Although we have been fatality-free since 1999, our HSE journey goes beyond statistics. As our portfolio of services has grown, we have continued to prioritize and advance our approach to HSE.
