One man bridge
When the radio officer was replaced by electronics more than 25 years ago, we came up with the integrated GMDSS console, which incorporated all relevant equipment. Showing radar, ECDIS, conning, alarm monitoring and dynamic positioning data at a glance from a comfortable captain’s chair with all instruments and operating panels within arm’s reach.
We created a unique, fully integrated one-man bridge with three 46-inch screens designed for offshore and coastal patrol vessels. The large 46-inch screens used on the AlphaBridge ensure that navigation officers get a clear view even when standing several meters away, making one man bridge operations much easier and therefore safer. Following the trend of smaller bridge design and reduced manning, AlphaBridge provides greater clarity on watch.
We have been pioneering new ways of working for years, gradually harmonizing control, communication and navigation technology. We introduced uniformity to lighting and switches, created a simple click system for flexible equipment installation and developed dynamic height adjustment for displays, to name just a few of our innovations.
