NEW NAVIGATION SYSTEM LAUNCHED BY NCS
A new navigation system launched by NCS (Norwegian Control Systems), a unique integrated navigation system (INS), will optimise operation of all types of vessels over 25 metres.
Called RAVEN INS, the new system will offer optimised interaction between bridge and navigation systems and will be available on the market in 2020. It has been designed and developed
to accommodate future requirements for integration, operation and safety.
Raven INS offers operations-based solutions, focusing on the navigator and only presenting information of relevance to the different tasks the vessel performs.
One of the key components of the new system is a self-developed operator’s chair, where the focus has been on functionality while at the same time ensuring that the chair is modern and elegant.The chair is designed to satisfy many types of use, for example winch operations and DP operations.
“This is a forward-looking and well-developed product that will rationalise work on the bridge and make life easier for navigators. The process of developing Raven INS has been motivating and it will be very exciting to present it at exhibitions so that customers can see and test the product,” says Ole M. Husøy, Master Marine – Sales & Design.
Because Raven INS is a scalable and flexible solution, it is suitable on all vessels, from 25-metre-long workboats to 150-metre-long mega yachts.
