Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT® updated version available from September 2017
A brand-new Safebridge training course for the Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT® with upgraded features for safe and reliable navigation onboard is now available.
Sperry Marine proudly presents the new VisionMaster FT® with several functional improvements which fully comply with the latest IHO S-52 ECDIS standards. The training course includes an updated operating system and display presentation. In addition, the “Lines of Position” user interface is simplified in order to speed up the manual position fixing. The latest version’s main change is the new alert management, which is now fully synchronised with the Bridge Alert Management System (BAMS). In the past, the high number of less important alerts on the bridge could lead navigators to ignore alerts and miss significant information. Therefore, less relevant audible alerts were removed to make sure no critical alarm went unnoticed.
“The ongoing cooperation between Safebridge and Sperry Marine led to ground-breaking results, tackling even the most demanding concerns of a seafarer’s safety”, said Safebridge managing director Ulf Steden.
Safebridge offers certified online VisionMaster FT® Type-Specific ECDIS training – anywhere and at any time, enabling all trainees to have a remote access to real ECDIS. The training course consists of three main features which make electronic navigation easy to learn: GuideMe, FreePlay and TestMe and applies to all VisionMaster FT® products, including ECDIS-E.
