Rutter Launches WaveVision
Rutter, the solutions provider for radar image processing for the maritime industry, unveiled an innovative complement to its sigma S6 product line, WaveVision, developed to optimize safety and operational efficiency of fishing and workboat operations.
WaveVision is a revolutionary tool that works with navigational x-band radar to give operators visibility into wave fields within a 1km range of the vessel.
When a large, obstructive or dangerous wave is detected the system alerts the operator, allowing time to make adjustment to speed or heading – or to allow time to warn deck personnel to seek shelter.
Conversely, WaveVisionTM can identify quiet periods to allow delicate on-deck or overside operations to take place in relative safety.
“We feel that this product represents a new direction for Rutter as we introduce an important component in the sigma S6 suite of products for mariners”, said Rutter President, Fraser Edison, “We’re confident that seafarers will appreciate this new layer of protection for their personnel and equipment.”
