Palladium Technologies in Monaco introduced its new integrated Glass Bridge system SiMON GOLD. Aside from its sleek glass surface and rich graphics, the bridge’s touch screen puts ship monitoring at the captain’s fingertips. An extension of Palladium’s work with Apple multi-touch devices, the system is intuitive and user friendly. Using two fingers, you can drag items from the menu bars to create personalized “View Ports”. You can resize, move and rotate frames, just as you can on a Smartphone or tablet, depending on the task at hand. With a definite Sci-Fi feel, the system combines alarm monitoring, wiper controls, thermal-imaging cameras, diver detection (an integrated feature from Farsounder), navigation and helm functions into one sleek package. This system is the result of years of research and development. One of the important features integrated into the design is the ability to easily reconfigure the bridge as new systems are added.
SiMON GOLD supports multiple operating systems, including Apple OS, iOS, Windows 7/8 and Android.
