By combining vessel manoeuvring with fish finding equipment, winch systems, catch monitoring systems and energy handling into one concept the FISHMASTER® is a reality.

FISHMASTER® is a unique fusion of functions and operator comfort for efficient fishery. The excellent capability of the sensor systems to find and identify fish is combined with the capability to manoeuvre and sail the vessel, all made simple by the advanced Human Machine Interface (HMI) based on large presentation displays.

FishMaster dual integraded operator station.

FISHMASTER® will be delivered as a part of the integration with KONGSBERG navigation system, automation system, Simrad products, propulsion control, thruster control and rudder control systems. The different operational modes (transit, shooting, towing, hauling, boost, etc.) will give the operator the power needed and the flexibility to operate from one location with all important equipment in focus.

Operational performance

The consoles can be electrically adjusted in height making it suitable both for seated and a stand-up operation. In addition the height and tilt angle of the video-wall displays can be adjusted.

There is limited space in the consoles: KONGSBERG levers for propulsion-, thruster- and rudder controls are custom design to fit into FISHMASTER. Additional operational information about these system is incorporated in the K-Chief 600 automation system.

There is one common track ball for operation on the 55" screens. For more detailed views and operation the 13" touch panel with multi-touch can be used to operate all KONGSBERG /Simrad products.

Common palette change and dimming function is handled from one location and will apply to all KONGSBERG / Simrad applications.

KONGSBERG / Simrad products are connected through a LAN network for easy handling of video-, mouse- and keyboard switching. Solutions can be configured for connecting a limited numbers of 3rd party equipment, however, the video signal needs to be grabbed by introducing additional hardware. The image quality may be slightly reduced and separate operator panels if applicable must be installed.

Operation of bridge auxiliaries for example window wipers, lanterns, RSW, ballast control and power management is done through the K-Chief 600 automation system.
