The purpose of a BNWAS Bridge Navigational Watch Alarm System is to monitor bridge activity and detect operator disability which could lead to accidents. The system monitors the awareness of the Officer of the Watch (OOW) and automatically alerts another qualified OOW or the Captain if for any reason the OOW becomes incapable of performing the OOW’s duties.
BW-800 BNWAS complies with following standards:
- Wheel Mark
- IEC 62616 (New standard from February 2010)
- IMO MSC. 128(75) (Old recommandation from May 2002)
