Ship's Information Monitoring System


Ship's Information Monitoring System

Ship's information MONitoring system (SIMON) from nVIEW provides integrated real-time information from all ship operational systems, summarizing and analyzing data from sensors on any system on the vessel. The data is saved for playback and analysis providing a single-point resource for integrated operational data. Historical data capture is facilitated for equipment failure analysis. A special feature for recording monitored systems performance parameters is the Ship's Recorder, a "behind the scene" black box recording function that is constantly logging the performance of all monitored systems.

SiMON collects and organizes real-time information from sensors monitoring shipís critical systems, alerting about potential problems before they become crises. It employs an open architecture by using the Ethernet to connect SiMON controllers to the ship's computers. Display monitors show the current state of engines and generators, navigation instruments, tanks, pumps, hydraulics, air conditioning, electrical systems, and hatches, bilge pumps and alarms, fire alarms. The main advantages of SiMON are:

  • Early warning of potential problems, before they become catastrophic
  • Constant vigilance over all monitored systems
  • Trending of data to assist in more efficient equipment operation
  • Optimizing fuel flows and pressures for required vesselís speed
