(ROTTERDAM, NETHERLANDS — December 5, 2007) Transas recently presented its next generation of onboard equipment at Europort Maritime 2007, an international maritime trade fair which took place on November 9th in Rotterdam. The improved products include a new 4000 series of Navi-Sailor ECDIS, Chart-Radar, Navi-Conning, and a new version of Transas VDR/S-VDR 3200.

The new Transas onboard systems signify a considerable step forward in the development and capabilities of marine electronics and are designed to meet and exceed the current requirements of maritime society, both within the expectations of the market and governments.

Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS 4000 (Multifunction Display) combines type-approved ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems), Chart-Radar, Conning Display, the Chart Assistant utility and SPOS weather module. Mariners can easily switch between the various applications, and are presented with a continual flow of crucial navigational information.

Transas Navi-Radar 4000/ Chart-Radar performs all the functions of radar and ARPA and can overlay electronic charts and AIS targets on a radar picture. The system allows a single click between chart displays, automatic chart loading and zooming.

Transas Navi-Conning 4000 is the new vector conning system intended to simplify the work of watch officers by providing valid information on the operation of ship systems. Users may order tailor-made screen layouts with parameter indicators not included in the base screen views.

Transas VDR/S-VDR 3200 is fully compliant with the IMO and IEC requirements. The system can now be supplied in VDR or S-VDR configuration, with the options of six different fixed and float free capsules. Among other features are picture grabbing from two radars, ten sources of audio signal recording, and additional external USB HDD. The system is certified as ECDIS backup and can be used onboard SOLAS vessels to meet ECDIS backup requirements.
