VisionMaster Net is the networked bridge solution from Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine, the industry leader for system quality and support. It simplifies deployment, increases system availability and creates the foundation for “big data” on the vessel to improve operational efficiency, while reducing through-life costs.
Current Integrated Bridge Systems are often cable intense, with many point-to-point connections between components that are slow to install, difficult to service and typically less resilient. Functionality is often hardware-based, which is costly to maintain if a service engineer is required on board or components need to be replaced. And such systems do not enable the ship-to-shore data that will drive improved operational efficiencies.
VisionMaster Net’s distributed architecture is easier to install with fewer components to connect and less cables to pull, while increasing resilience through a fully redundant network. Its modular design allows any combination of equipment to be easily integrated over an Ethernet ring, using standard cables to simplify installation further.
The system offers complete flexibility in how panel PC displays are configured, which take up less space in the bridge design to suit any size of vessel. Its intuitive interface minimises the need for re-training and increased software functionality enables more efficient maintenance and upgrades. VisionMaster Net is the networked bridge solution that helps ship owners and shipyards remain competitive in an ever-changing market.
VisionMaster Net provides the infrastructure for a networked bridge solution that incorporates the full VisionMaster Net family of products: Radar, Chart Radar, ECDIS, Conning Information Display, Central Alert Manager and TotalWatch. All VisionMaster Net products are designed with common hardware platforms and a consistent user interface for more efficient bridge management and enhanced safety at sea.
