Integrated bridge system (IBS)




An integrated bridge system (IBS) is defined as a combination of systems which are interconnected in order to allow centralized access to sensor information or command/control from workstations, with the aim of increasing safe and efficient ship's management by suitably qualified personnel.

Performance stadards for integrated bridge systems were adopted by IMO in 1996 (Resolution MSC.64(67))

The revised SOLAS chapter V adopted in December 2000 and entering into force in July 2002 says in Regulation 19 Carriage requirements for shipborne navigational systems and equipment paragraph 6: Integrated bridge systems shall be so arranged that failure of one sub-system is brought to immediate attention of the officer in charge of the navigational watch by audible and visual alarms, and does not cause failure to any other sub-system. In case of failure in one part of an integrated navigational system, it shall be possible to operate each other individual item of equipment or part of the system separately.

Eco Marine Power (EMP) of Japan says that its rigid sail technology for ships, known as EnergySail, has successfully concluded function testing at the Aquarius Innovation Lab in Osaka, supported by JSMEA (Japan Ship Machinery & Equipment Association).

EnergySail is intended to meet demands for renewable energy onboard ships, and is a rigid structure that can be used to convet both wind and light power into energy. It can be used as a stand-alone device or as part of a larger array of eight or more units.

It has been designed primarily as part of EMP’s Aquarius MRE system, a true hybrid power system for ships,
