Tracking and Awareness


A smart backup and decision support app on a tablet to provide mobility onboard. It helps enhance safety with navigational hazards warnings and consult the berthing assistant on wings without any stationary conning display.


BridgeMate is an iPad app that serves as an efficient backup device in case of the main navigational system blackout. It can be used also as a convenient device for a seafarer to be aware of the navigational situation on board even if being away from the Bridge. Situational awareness, decision support and docking aids are available in one app. When offline, the application operates via the built-in GPS.

Key features

  • Integrates with Voyage Planning tools and ECDIS.
  • Syncs electronic charts with Voyage Planning tools and ECDIS.
  • Fetches data directly from the Bridge:
    • Navigation Information (position, course, speed, etc.)
    • Monitored and executed routes
    • AIS and ARPA targets
  • Provides Smart Docking assistant from the ship's wings with no conning display.
  • Acts as a second ECDIS Backup and autonomous plotter with just GPS capabilities and offline charts.
  • Comes with built-in Seakeeping Module to avoid parametric rolling, pitching, heaving, and stability loss.
