Danish term or phrase: udsætte 360° VRM fra eget skib
Full sentence: Det skal være muligt at udsætte 360° VRM fra eget skib, som er fastlåst til og følger eget skib.

Sentence taken from tender specifications concerning an electronic (nautical) chart system. VRM stands for Vertical Range Markers.

I'm confused as to the meaning of the sentence overall, and my confusion hinges on the verb "udsætte". I imagine it is not to be read as "exclude". IATE has "udsætte kurs" as "plot a course".

So: "It must be possible to plot VRM's from the own vessel in a 360 degree radius..." or "It must be possible to plot 360 degree VRM's from..."?

Or am I completely off?
