Voyage Data Recorder
- The IMO compliant VR7000 Voyage Data Recorded (VDR) is similar to the black boxes carried on aircraft. The VR7000 documents all crucial shipboard data, aiding investigators in securing evidence by reviewing procedures and instructions in the moments before an accident.
- The VR7000 collects data from all interfaced sensors on the vessel, storing it in an external Data Recording Unit (DRU). The system comes with two tamper-proof DRU units, one fixed and one float-free. They are designed to withstand extreme impact, pressure, shock and heat, which may happen during an incident.
- When the DRU is retrieved, the stored data can be replayed by authorities to investigate the cause of the accident. The VR7000 also makes a valuable training tool, providing feedback as to what may have been contributing factors to incidents onboard.
