Vessel Black Box
Performance monitoring for ships and vessels
A+D VBB-systems is designed to be used as a reliable tool for measuring and storing data on Vessel operation and behaviour. The VBB-system can be used to collect data for later analysis for statistics purposes, warranty investigations as well as storing critical data for incident and accident investigations. The basic system has accurate motion monitoring as the core of the system.
Such measurements can during long term operations be of great value to vessel designers as well as vessel owners. It can reveal design problem or operational problem areas at a very early stage and be the main factor leading to a successful operation. Motor data, navigation data, structural data, meteorological and oceanographic parameters and other relevant information can be added as an extra feature when required.
