Ravenstvo - Delta Software and Hardware Complex | EIZO

Solutions for Icebreaking Fleets

ravenstvo_logo.jpgRavenstvo has announced its latest development — software and hardware complex called Delta for monitoring and evaluation of ice condition parameters. The solution improves the quality of radiolocation data on ice conditions and changes in the parameters of the ice.

Delta receives information from several radars with different ranges available onboard, processes all the data sets and displays the result.

Using data sets from multiple radars with various ranges helps refine the mapping of ice situations, especially in bad weather conditions. The built-in special data processing complex increases the detection range of ice fields, as well as separate ice floes, and allows the operator to assess ice condition using exact figures.

DuraVision FDU2603WEach Delta complex is equipped with a professional touch screen EIZO monitor, the DuraVision FDU2603WT. The model supports the most accurate mapping information.

DuraVision FDU2603W with a diagonal of 25.5 inches is prepared for use in the harsh marine environment, with its temperature conditions, humidity and vibrations. DuraVision FDU2603W meets all the requirements of the international IEC 60945 standard for marine navigation and communication systems. Protection class IP65 ensures that the monitor is fully protected against dust and low pressure water flows.

The monitor is equipped with an industrial grade body of stainless steel as well as LED backlight. This guarantees a long service life and high reliability.

Data acquired with the Delta software and hardware complex will be used in the creation and operation of ships and offshore facilities in freezing Arctic and Antarctic seas, including the area of the Arctic shelf.

In the near future the Delta complex will be deployed at both Russian and foreign icebreakers for monitoring and assessment of ice conditions.
