Transas Demonstrates New Tech at SMM

Transas, as is its custom, rolled out new technology at SMM, technology aimed at its core mission to increase Safety of Navigation. Two central items November 2004 on display comprised three new ergonomic consoles, with multi-functional workplaces allowing visitors to operate Navi-Sailor 3000 ECDIS, Navi- Conning 3000 and Navi-Radar 3000.

The route plan for the system is generated in the Navi- Sailor 3000 ECDIS-I system, while the system itself is connected to the automatic helm and is intended to keep a ship automatically on a pre-planned track under various conditions.

In the Simulator Center Transas showed the latest version of its Navi- Trainer Professional 4000 Simulator, which comprises three channels. 120 degrees of visualization and originally designed instructor console. Among the new features implemented into the Simulator recently, are the Fishing Bridge Module; built-in underwater visual representation of the different shoals, seabed and fishing gear as 3D objects with true color and high realistic texturing; joint training with ERS 4000 simulator; 30 different ship motion models adjusted; New Conning display pages for 2 and 4-stroke diesel; multiple sensor availability for all ship models; new special exercise objects for tug and mooring operations; new configurable consoles for the scenario activation and video logger, just to name a few.
