Multi functional operator station - K-Bridge

K-Bridge MULTI combines the capabilities of ARPA, ECDIS and Conning stations into one unit.

With its three modes of operation, K-Bridge MULTI provides an excellent opportunity for optimal sharing of work. Each mode complies with the respective regulations for that mode and allows the crew to set up the bridge with multiple K-Bridge MULTI stations exactly as preferred for the current manning and vessel operation. The possibility to shift command responsibility for autopilot and track control between the stations contributes further to the flexibility.
