Litton Marine Systems has introduced a new Integrated Bridge System (IBS), which has been designed to provide a cost-effective solution to basic navigation requirements in an IMO-compliant package. The new Pilot Series IBS consists of a scalable set of pre-configured system modules, which are mounted in standard bridge console units. The system is based on Litton’s proven Voyage Management System (VMS) system with Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS).
The basic Pilot Series package includes a VMS/ECDIS console kit, BridgeMaster E ARPA radar console kit, doppler speed log, gyrocompass, steering console with adaptive autopilot, echosounder, magnetic compass and wind sensor. A range of optional modules is also available. The modular IBS has been designed for easy retrofit on existing ships as well as newbuilds.
“The Pilot Series IBS was developed to provide an IMO-compliant navigation suite in a standardized package for customers who do not require extensive custom engineering,” said J. Nolasco DaCunha, vice president, sales and service. “Like all Litton Marine Systems products, the Pilot Series IBS is backed by our global network of service and spares in nearly 400 locations worldwide,” said DaCunha.
