Dutch equipment manufacturer Alphatron Marine has delivered the first 46-inch display AlphaBridge for patrol vessel TTS Speyside.
While keeping a 360 viewing field, the AlphaBridge includes unique and sophisticated functions displayed on three sharp displays presented in a fully integrated package.
Operating in Trinidad and Tobago, TTS Speyside is equipped with the latest high-end tactical navigation and observation system onboard. All systems work flawlessly together to allow target motion analysis, intelligence and target alarms for a quick response to emergency situations.
Using a secure voice via VHF and MF/HF and data through VSAT communications line, sharing intelligence between the shore based surveillance centre is just as important. This allows for optimal decision support and joint engagement. With use of an advanced WAIS onboard and successful identification is achieved, immediate, strategic and controlled engagement of single or multiple targets can be accomplished with the use of single or multiple patrol and smaller interceptor boats.
The manufacturer says in a statement that the aforementioned features are just a few of the solutions and capabilities of the AlphaBridge supported by specialized WECDIS functions, presented on large displays in an easy to use format.
In addition, the Dutch firm is combining its expertise with Damen shipyard and IT developer Transas to present this cost-effective platform.
The navigation and surveillance equipment is carefully selected by the owners, based on high performance, proven technologies and cost effectiveness.
