An advanced data recorder for marine applications


The NDR (Navigation Data Recorder) is a powerful data recorder dedicated to marine applications, offering a cost effective solution (not certified) for VDR appliance (black box). Furthermore, it offers many services of data recording intented for sailors (cruising or competition), designers, builders, fleet managers, experts.

It can be used as a stand alone solution or as module associated with the UpSideUp solutions, with which it shares data. It is delivered as a standard with the UpSideUp SuperYacht version.
The power of its processor, its storage capacity and the numerous inputs possibilities allow the sequential or event recording, simultaneously in several data files, at high frequency.

We designed the NDR to be totally adaptable to any project and specific application. However, this adaptability keeps intact its first qualities that are the simplicity and the reliability. The equipment installed on board works in a automatic way, without requiring particular attention. The typical configuration suits 90 % of the applications.
The information recorded by the NDR can be read on any computer to retrace the precise activity of the ship before and during the incident, or for any other purpose. The analysis can be led in a effective and fast way and requires no particular knowledge.

Even in case of important damages arisen on the ship, the data remain recoverable and exploitable most of the time. The case is rugged and water proof. The data are protected on a solid memory and are protected from the humidity, the shocks, the vibrations, and the heat.
The data are also protected against modifications and deletion. A restricted access to the data, using a password, can be set up.
An "incident" button save and protect the last 48 hours.
