NSB’s worldwide fleet of 77 container vessels is to be retrofitted with STN Atlas Marine Electronics’s new Debeg 3400 Universal AIS system under a contract signed between the two companies at the recent SMM Exhibition in Hamburg. Installation of systems will commence at the beginning of next year. Approximately 80 percent of the vessels are already equipped with STN Atlas NACOS integrated navigation command systems. Newly developed by STN Atlas Marine Electronics and presently being type-approved by the German Bureau of Shipping and Hydrography (BSH), the fully autonomous Debeg 3400 transmits ship¹s own data such as position, course, speed and identification while receiving the same from other UAIS systems within VHF range. Other main features include merging of AIS and APRA target data in addition to acquisition of target information where no radar contact is available. Development of the Debeg 3400 follows extensive trials of systems in the Baltic as well as in Alaska aboard Holland America and P&O Princess Cruises’ cruiseliners.
