Transas has added two new products to its portfolio - the Voyage Data Recorder, Navi-VDR, and Automatic Identification System, AIMS MIII. The former allows the recording, compressing, storage and replaying of ship’s data as required by existing IMO regulations for such equipment, including IEC6196. The Navi-VDR package consists of three modules including a System Interface Unit, a Data Management Unit and a Hardened Storage Unit.
Further enhancement of the Transas product range comes in the form of AIMS MIII (Automatic Identification System). AIMS MIII is designed in accordance with, and is fully compliant with, the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) functional standard for UAIS. The main benefits achieved with this equipment include precise and reliable tracking and positioning of vessels; data interchange between any mobile installation, the VTS centre and any wide area network; short message services and telemetry applications for the remote control of navigation aids such as lighthouses or buoys.
