New Black Box Recorder


Rutter Technologies, a first time exhibitor at Nor-Shipping ‘99, will be introducing its Voyage Data Recorder (VDR), a new safety and management tool for the marine industry. This will be the official European launch of the product.
A unique feature of the Rutter’s product is its playback and display capability. The recorded data can be downloaded and played back at any time on a PC via a high speed LAN connection and a multimedia type playback software package. This feature makes the product extremely valuable as a teaching/operational guidance tool. For example, if for some reason, it takes extra long to dock a ship at one of its ports of call, the Captain and/or the navigation officer could download the data and, immediately, or at his or her convenience, replay the operation to assess exactly what caused the problem.
The VDR is now being used in the marine industry on a voluntary basis to improve the management of its vessels and to provide vital data in the event of an incident. It is essentially an "aircraft black box" for ships. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has already passed a resolution related to the performance standard for the mandated version of this product and the European Union has launched a parallel initiative. The IMO carriage requirement is expected to be passed in this year. The regulation will be phased in over the next 5 to 10 years with carriage requirement by ro-ro/passenger ships and high speed ferries likely to be mandated by in 2002. The VDR records all the primary navigation sensor information utilized on the bridge of a ship along with bridge audio and radio communications.
