Ruselectronics has launched commercial manufacturing of shipboard TV systems with LAN functionality. The system will provide telemedicine and Internet access services to ship crews. The equipment is demonstrated at the International Maritime Defence Show.
The shipboard TV system developed by Neptun Research and Development Institute is designed for installation on floating and onshore facilities. It provides loudspeaking communications, separate sound-powered telephone circuit and multithreaded CCTV with data storage function.
The new TV system will provide telemedicine access, satellite communications, individual TV channel services to ship crews. Moreover, the solution implements the thin-client technology allowing to use any office application. The ship’s officers will be able to exercise access control based on wireless tags with complete access event history storage and to install IoT sensors for on-line weather data acquisition.
“The engineers combined the TV system and LAN functions to ensure widely extended functionality and equipment capabilities. In addition, the system architecture allowed to avoid using data storage systems. The customer premises computer network will significantly improve the crew’s quality of life when on combat duty. The system has been already accepted by the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation,” said Sergey Pomazunov, Temporary General Director of Neptun Research and Development Institute.
