Sperry Marine’s VisionMaster Integrated Bridge System (IBS) combines industry-leading navigation equipment in one consistent, reliable, easy-to-use system. With secure connectivity to shore to support your digitalisation. Plus access to the market’s best applications, content and digital services to bring more intelligence to your navigation. And safer, more efficient and sustainable operations.
Consistent Real-time Data
VisionMaster IBS brings together data from all onboard navigation systems and sensors to support the key navigation functions: route planning, route monitoring, collision avoidance, alert management and navigation status display.
Multifunction workstations can be configured to display radar images, electronic charts, conning information, CCTV images, chart radar and central alert management to enhance your operational flexibility and resilience. Navigational data is automatically synchronised across all workstations to ensure the latest information is always in use and reduce crew workload.
And all navigation functions have the same intuitive VisionMaster user interface that many mariners are familiar with for safe, easy operation.
Key onboard navigational data is accessible from shore for simplified communication, improved operational visibility and decision making. It enables real-time situation, vessel performance and equipment data to be continuously monitored for risk assessment, fuel and motion optimisation, asset management, regulatory compliance and predictive maintenance purposes.
This capability ultimately allows fleet operation teams to provide route planning assistance, with system recommendations on speed and course to improve efficiency and reduce emissions. And enables Sperry Marine’s Global Service Centre to provide remote support to reduce your through-life costs and maximise operational uptime.
Sperry Marine works closely with shipyards and owners to tailor the VisionMaster IBS to meet individual vessel requirements. We provide support throughout the complete lifecycle from design, installation, commissioning and acceptance, to maintenance and repair at the highest levels of 24/365 global service to always keep your vessel sailing.
Conning Information Display: Customisable to vessel requirements and certified by class society. Mariner can select conning information for display according to current navigational task.
Central Alert Management System (CAM): Consistently manages alerts across the system and provides an overview of all active alerts for acknowledgement or silencing, plus alert history list.
VisionMaster ECDIS: Industry-leading route planning and monitoring solution that’s fully compliant, fast, easy and accurate. Clear intuitive interface optimises situational awareness and reduces risk of accidents. VisionMaster IBS applies consistent route plans and route monitoring settings across all workstations.
