AWARD WINNING BRIDGE
Sperry Marine's outstanding Integrated Bridge design has been acclaimed by the marine world as the winner of the 1990 "Seatrade Award for Cost/
Efficiency ."This award recognizes the capability of our IBS to provide the watch officer all the information needed in a clear, concise, comprehensive format on a daylight-bright, full color display at the main conning station.
This display, along with the award-winning Sperry Marine RASCAR radar/
ARPA, incorporates our unique touchscreen control, eliminating the usual forest of knobs, buttons and switches and greatly reducing the watch officer's workload. More accurate navigation is made possible through our precise
Position Filter Modules. The result is optimal steering for additional savings of time and money.
Designed to provide ultimate versatility to meet any operational need. The unique Navigation Workstation tailors all planning functions according to voyage requirements. Sperry Marine's
SeaNET integrates all essential sen- sors to assure maximum usefulness.
And Sperry Marine's Integrated Bridge design provides for the future, too. The exceptional flexibility of a Sperry Marine
Bridge will readily accept additional sensor inputs whenever they are installed to meet future requirements.
Safety is the most important consideration in our bridge designs. In every
Sperry Marine configuration, from the first one-man bridge on the "Petrobulk
Mars," to the many new tankers, containerships, ro-ros and passenger ferries fitted with Sperry Marine's Integrated Bridge Systems, vessel safety is the prime consideration.
Our concern for safety has been recognized by the Seatrade Safety at Sea Award presented to Sperry Marine for its touchscreen control technology, the same technology used extensively in many of our integrated bridge equipments. 1990 Seatrade Award for
