Norcontrol Offers New Anti-Collision System —Literature Available

Norcontrol has introduced Data- Bridge 7, a new advanced collision avoidance system which emphasizes operator/system communication while complying with recent demands from IMCO and the U.S. Coast Guard.

Norcontrol reports the new system includes several features specifically designed to aid the operator.

Audio and visual warnings occur whenever a target exceeds "closest point of approach" and "time to closest point of approach" — limits selected by the operator. An enhanced luminosity of the system's daylight radar display provides greater visibility and makes the hood unnecessary.

The daylight radar displays course-up, north-up or head-up modes on a 16-inch PPI screen.

DataBridge 7 includes features of its predecessor DB-4, such as constant monitoring of targets during own ship maneuvers. Its navigational sub-system t r a c ks fixed targets, displays fairway lines, and performs dead-reckoning and drift calculations. The new system is microprocessorcontrolled, contains no moving parts, and uses the latest selfchecking technology. Continuous system monitoring of main signals and built-in debugging programs provide high reliability.
