Method and system for determining the position of marine vessels and similar objects

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #7315274.

A method for determining the relative position between two or more objects in a marine environment, including waterways, of which at least one object can be maneuvered relative to one or more other objects. At least one interrogator is arranged on one or more of the objects and sends a radio wave signal to at least one transponder arranged on one or more of the other objects. The novel method is the use of a FMCW radar in the interrogator, the use of the transponders for including identity tags into the signals to be reflected to the interrogator, and attitude determination. A system for this determination is also described.
