On October 5th, 2008, Hatteland Display received an order for 290 Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) displays for installation on the US Coast Guard buoy tender fleet. The United States Coast Guard (USCG) Command and Control Center located in Portsmouth, VA selected the company's JH19T14MMD (Maritime Multi Display), and procured the displays through a contract awarded to CHI Systems of Ft. Washington, PA.
The contract was awarded following the issuing by the USCG of a competitive request for proposal seeking qualified sources for delivery of ECDIS monitors for its buoy tending fleet of 225' WLB and the 175' WLM vessels.
The navigation and ECDIS installations aboard the buoy tending fleet are substantial and require Type Approved ECDIS displays. The current Coast Guard platform uses five video display stations; one in a console positioned on the forward center of the bridge, two mounted to the overhead on the port and starboard bridge wings, one mounted in a console in the chartroom and one backup system mounted on the bulkhead in the chartroom.
The JH19T14MMD is an ECDIS compliant 19" display from Hatteland Display's Series 1 Redesign family. This display offers 1280 x 1024 @ 60 Hz with a choice of 24 VDC or 115/230 VAC power and a multitude of connections including DVI-I IN, RGB in, RGB out, USB I/O and Multifunctional I/O Connector.
