The Sperry Marine VMS Integrated Bridge provides
Total Information and Total Control for the Watch Officer who can quickly and easily access all vital navigation information from one command location and access critical control commands from the same location.
In the Command Station, the Watch Officer has a display of ship's position on a uniform and accurate north-up electronic chart with ownship symbol, scaled to the selected chart, advancing along the displayed planned route.
The system immediately alerts the Watch Officer to any off-track condition or approach to danger areas.
And, from the same command location, the Watch
Officer can see ARPA targets and vectors overlaid on the chart while being able to display ARPA target data on our unique touchscreen displays.
The Sperry Marine award-winning VMS Integrated
Bridge maximizes effective conning time, enhances vessel safety and reduces risk.
