Welcome to the Marine Technology Society's Dynamic Positioning web site. The DP Committee - a non-profit 503C organization - was established in 1996, with the objective of promoting a greater international understanding of Dynamic Positioning and related issues. In 2010, the Dynamic Positioning Committee Received the MTS Outstanding Committee Recognition.

Dynamic Positioning Committee Mission Statement

The Dynamic Positioning Committee’s mission is to encourage exchange of information, discussion of technology, training and education, foster improvement of DP reliability, develop guidelines, and address any other issues pertinent to dynamic positioning that facilitate incident free execution of DP operations, and that are consistent with the objectives of the Marine Technology Society.
