BNWAS -Bridge Navigational Watch Alarm System


BNWAS is designed to monitor the bridge activity and detect operator’s disability which could lead to marine accidents. The system monitors the awareness of the Officer of the Watch (OOW) and automatically alerts the Master or another qualified OOW if for any reason the OOW becomes incapable of performing the OOW’s duties. This purpose is achieved by a series of indications and alarms to alert first the OOW and if he is not responding, then to alert the Master or another qualified OOW.
