Kongsberg Maritime shows new K-Nav system at Nor-Shipping
Kongsberg Maritime will unveil a new navigation portfolio that complements its existing K-Bridge Integrated Navigation System (INS) at Nor-Shipping 2015 (stand C03-24). K-Nav is a new navigation product family tailored for the SOLAS market and meeting all mandatory requirements from respective flag states. In parallel to the launch of K-Nav, Kongsberg Maritime is also introducing upgrades to K-Bridge INS, which is designed for vessels with demanding navigation and manoeuvring needs.
The K-Nav product line will be delivered through a Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) delivery model ensuring low costs without compromising on the highly-regarded KONGSBERG quality. This approach enables customers to tailor their vessel bridge systems using a portfolio of standardised products that work seamlessly together in any configuration, creating flexibility and cost efficiency for both new build and retrofit vessels.
K-Nav Radar, which is based on Kongsberg Maritime’s unique networked radar technology, is a key aspect of the new K-Nav portfolio. The radar display unit is a type approved chart radar/ARPA where approved nautical charts can be displayed as underlay to the radar video. Raw data from the antenna is processed in the unit, correlating tracked radar targets and targets from the AIS. Local filtering of the raw data allows the same radar to be viewed at multiple stations, applying individual filter settings.
