The next generation Voyage Data Recorders (VDR) has been designed with the combinations of a new real-time data display, increased storage capacity, and replay software functionality.

Compliant to the latest performance standards and technical requirements, as defined in MSC.333(90) and IEC 61996-1 Edition 2, HENSOLDT UK’s VDR systems are a cost effective and easy and flexible upgrade solution, futureproofing any vessel, new or old via a retrofit.

The system utilises identical hardware for both S-VDR and VDR, offering high resolution touchscreen display, with an ‘On Demand’ system performance test. In case of an incident operators can access a simple playback function with ‘Audio Scan’ and ‘Jump to Incident’ capabilities. The means they are able to review procedures and actions taken in the period before an incident occurred, thus identifying cause.
