Fully Compliant


The VisionMaster FT ECDIS is fully compliant with the International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) regulations for paperless navigation and electronic chart display. It provides a separate, redundant backup station in case the primary ECDIS navigation station becomes unavailable. Our highly reliable, flexible navigation solution provides improvements in performance to enhance the ship's safety at sea.


The ECDIS also includes an ADMIRALTY Information Overlay (AIO) layer, making Temporary & Preliminary Notices to Mariners and ENC Preliminary Notices to Mariners available to ships' navigators, to learn more.


VisionMaster FT ECDIS with Radar Overlay   To improve efficiency and safety at sea, VisionMaster FT ECDIS with Radar Overlay integrates the radar video and targets on the electronic charts, correlating the radar targets with the AIS targets shown on the ECDIS. To facilitate the use, the information density of the ENC cartography shown is completely configurable, from a simplified presentation of the coast to a fully detailed visualization.   The VisionMaster FT ECDIS with Radar Overlay from Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine can be provided in console format, desktop format or kit format. It provides intelligent functions for safe navigation, exceeding IMO requirements for additional safety at sea.
