Radio Holland Introduces

New Kelvin Hughes Integrated

Bridge System In New York

Participants examine the new Kelvin Hughes' Integrated Bridge System at a recent demonstration in New

York hosted by the Radio Holland Group.

The Radio Holland Group, Elec- tronic Systems, Marine, recently in- troduced a new Kelvin Hughes Inte- grated Bridge System at a demon- stration at the New York Hilton

Hotel in New York City. The demon- stration in New York was part of a nationwide tour of the Kelvin

Hughes integrated bridge systems.

The other stops on the tour included

Houston, San Francisco, Washing- ton, D.C., and Ft. Lauderdale.

On display at the technical dem- onstration were the Nucleus Inte- grated Navigation System (NINAS), which combines the NAVMON and

NAVDIS systems; Electronic Chart

Display unit (ECDIS); Nucleus 6000

Series Color ARPA radar; and the

Nucleus 5000 Series Color RM/TM radar. Radio Holland's Gregg

Nichols, business development manager, IBS/Special projects, and

Kelvin Hughes representative Mike

Read provided complete operation and technical support, as the sys- tem was run through several simu- lated operational situations.

Radio Holland also had mock-up consoles housing Global Maritime

Distress and Safety System equip- ment on display.

The goal of the design of Kelvin

Hughes' integrated bridge system is directed at improving efficiency and productivity, reducing bridge man- ning to "single manning," yet pro- moting higher standards of opera- tional safety.

The IBS includes all the naviga- tion, monitoring, control and com- munication functions of the ships bridge in a "single" ergonomically engineered unit constructed from a combination of standards modules.

IBS is divided into three main function areas: (1) charts—plot- ting—navigational information; (2) navigation—observation—driving and controlling; and (3) ancillary information and communications.

These functions consist of the following interconnected units: • Electronic Chart Table (ECTAB) continues

CALTAX MARINE • Reconditioning of main diesel engine parts • Short delivery time • Large stock of main engine piston crowns, cylinder covers, exhaust valve seats and spindles • Supply of spare parts on a 'next flight' base
