The Maritime Black Box - S (MBB-S), Kongsberg Maritime's S-VDR offering, has been upgraded. The black box computer's hard disk size has been increased from 40 gb standard/120 gb optional, to 160 gb standard, which now enables up to 30 days playback time, for the same cost. Also, Kongsberg Maritime has now packaged the MBB-S in one compact marine grade cabinet. Previously, the system was only available as separate rack-mounted units, but following customer feedback, Kongsberg Maritime has re-packaged the system at no extra cost to the owner. Additionally, the Remote Annual Survey package, designed to enable the ship's crew to conduct S-VDR surveys in conjunction with Kongsberg Maritime
has been unlocked and is now available for use on any onboard PC.
