Total network sensor integration delivers enhanced situational awareness to the mariner. An uncomplicated display presentation simplifies and streamlines navigational tasks. Common responsibilities such as route planning, navigation status monitoring, log-keeping, alarm awareness and day-to-day chart management are made easy through common workstation layout and redundancy of display and control.
the next-generation bridge system
Furuno Voyager bridge system offers multifunction workstations with seamless display of Radar/Chart Radar, ECDIS, Conning and Alert Management System data. Furuno Voyager bridge systems have been developed with a completely new and intuitive user interface and in strict accordance with the most up-to-date safety and navigation standards in mind.
Multifunction display (MFD) capability
Furuno Voyager offers workstations that combine flexibility and redundancy. Users may easily select ECDIS, Radar/Chart Radar, Conning display or Alert Management System at any multifunction display.
In ECDIS mode, the operators can generate and edit route plans. Also, ship’s behavior can be monitored in relations to the planned route. The detailed parameters set for each waypoint within the route can be viewed in the route information window.
Radar/Chart Radar mode
In Radar/Chart Radar mode, the operators can monitor radar image around the ship, hence enhancing their situational awareness with information about the nearby objects above the sea surface. It is a powerful tool for collision avoidance while the ship is underway.
In the Conning display mode, sensor information and real-time navigation data are presented to navigators in a thoughtfully designed display presentation.
Information to be shown in the conning display:
- Pitch and Roll
- Rudder angles
- Rate of Turn
- Position fix
- Speed (bow speed, longitudinal speed and stern speed)
- Propeller pitch
- Wind speed and direction (both true and relative)
- Thrusters pitch
- Alert list
- BNWAS indication
- Date and time, etc.
Alert Management System mode
Alert Management System presents and prioritizes alert status and information. The well designed display layout gives operators the ability to quickly identify alert situations, and the actions required to rectify the cause of the alert.
The Alert management System satisfies MSC.302(87) Performance Standards for Bridge Alert Management.
