Navigation Assistant for the Pilots

For one of our Clients we have provided a Navigation Assistence System which provides the pilots onboard a freefall lifeboat to navigate away from the danger zone and into a safe direction. Navigation Assistant System (NAS) is an instrument for visual guidance of safe direction to navigate away from a damaged ship or platform. The system is activated when the lifeboat is experiencing a free fall, and NAS will immediately start giving the pilot information.

An organized display with arrows and lights will lead the lifeboat away from the danger zone and into safety. Further details can be found at: www.scanmatic.no
