Press Release

Taiwan's Yang Ming Transport Corp. selected VisionMaster Net from Sperry Marine as the cornerstone of its digital navigation strategy on 10 new containerships it recently ordered.

Yang Ming is building a series of 10 2,800 teu feeder vessels at CSBC Shipyard in Kaohsiung, with sea trials on the first ships scheduled for early 2020.

VisionMaster Net is a networked bridge solution providing simplified deployment, increased system availability and creating the foundation for big data from the bridge to increase operational efficiency, while reducing through-life costs.

The bridges feature panel PCs to save space and lower the total cost of ownership. They include Sperry Marine's TotalWatch technology which enables users switch between Type Approved functions such as radar or ECDIS on a single screen

VisionMaster Net is constructed with distributed architecture and is designed, by nature, with fewer components to connect and cables to pull, with an eye on ease of installation. Its modular design allows any combination of equipment to be easily integrated over an Ethernet ring, using standard cables to simplify installation further.

The system offers complete flexibility in how panel PC displays are configured, which take up less space in the bridge design to suit any size of vessel. An intuitive interface minimizes the need for re-training and increased software functionality enables more efficient maintenance and upgrades.
