K-Chief 600 Ship@Web

The Ship@Web system is designed to enable continuous access to primary vessel data both on-board the vessel and from ashore. The Ship@Web system can display data from the K-Chief 600 marine automation system.


The Ship@Web user interface is carefully designed to support the operator in his daily routine and is similar to other Kongsberg systems.

The Ship@Web system is designed to enable continuous access to primary vessel data both on-board the vessel and from ashore. The Ship@Web system can display data from the K-Chief 600 marine automation system. The Ship@Web system provides a secure connection into an isolated K-Chief 600 system, based on state-of-the-art solutions. Based on web technology with a safe communication structure, Ship@ Web also can be used to view and use historical data through applications such as Trend, Report and Export.

Key features

Integration between the process network and the administrative network provides:

  • Access to automation data.
  • Organization and storage of data.
  • Presentation and decision support.
  • Automatic and manual ship reporting.
  • Display sub-systems as eq. engine monitoring, power management, fire or tank systems and etc.
  • Presentation of lists such as alarm views and process views.
  • Presentation of counters, event logs, Exhaust Gas.
  • Navigation structure identical with the K-Chief 600 system.

Ship@Web applications

Viewer - displays online data generated by the K-Chief 600 automation system. Process information can be made available anywhere on-board a vessel through the ship’s administrative network or in an office ashore using a standard personal computer.Data is presented by using a user interface similar to that used by the Kongsberg K-Chief 600 system.

Trend - records and presents vessel process data generated by the K-Chief 600 automation system. It can also be used to create user defined tabular views.

Report - provides reports based on online information generated by the K-Chief 600 automation system. Report data may be printed or stored as electronic PDF and XML documents. The application includes a predefined range of report templates. Through the Report Designer, the user may also create reports with self defined data.

Export - provides online information from the K-Chief 600 automation system to third party recipients in the administrative network. Typical data recipients are Planned Maintenance Systems and Loading Computers.

System architecture

The Ship@Web system architecture is mainly a custom K-Chief 600 automation system with a server/firewall solution installed.

The main role of the server is to be the connection point with external networks requiring information from the K-Chief 600 system. The server acts as a web server hosting applications which can be used from any location by using a normal web browser.

The server does not contain display or user interface units, but can be serviced remotely. It does not require any maintenance or operation by the crew on-board.

All computers connecting to the K-Chief 600 process LAN will be authorized by the firewall. This provides a high security level for the K-Chief 600 system, protecting the process LAN from unauthised access and other threats from the administrative network.

System access

The Ship@Web system can be accessed from several locations:

  • From the ship's administrative network: This communication is typical when the crew wants information from the K-Chief 600 system to offices and cabins located on the ship. This data can be used for further analysis and comparison, live view of process views and trends and so on.
  • From shore or external networks: This communication is typical when the ship owner wants information from the K-Chief 600 system to shore or headquarter. This data can be used for further analysis and comparison, snapshots of process views, logbook pages, bunker reports and so on.

User interface

The user interface is an important feature. The Ship@Web user interface is carefully designed to support the operator in his daily routine. Moreover, the screen layout is similar to other Kongsberg systems, such as the K-Chief 600, hence the operator will be instantly familiar with all important system functions.
