Maritime Information Systems AS introduces the world’s first DNV type approved VDR and S-VDR with optional ECDIS, providing, in addition to the recorded data required under IEC 61996, recording of the complete logbook database in ECDIS.
The VDR2000 is designed to record and maintain a retrievable record of the ship’s nautical, technical and safety data, and is presently in its third generation. Like the black boxes carried on aircraft, VDRs enable accident investigators to review procedures and instructions in the moments before an incident, and help to identify its cause. All data is stored in both the protective capsule (Hardened Voyage Recorder-HVR) and on the hard disk in the VDR2000. The stored data can be downloaded and analyzed for investigation purpose, training and simulation at any time.

The VDR2000 meets the IMO Performance Standard A.861(20), the EU Directive 1999/35/EC and the IEC 61996 Test Specifications. VDR2000 is EC type approved (Wheelmark) according to EU Council Directive 96/98/EC of 20 December on Marine Equipment, as amended by directive 2002/75/EC.
Like the black boxes carried on aircraft, VDRs enable accident investigators to review procedures and instructions in the moments before an incident and help to identify its cause.
The S-VDR2000 is easy to install, service and upgrade, resulting in low installation and life cycle costs.
The S-VDR2000 is small in size with low weight, and its use of COTS components ensures well proven solutions and high reliability. The S-VDR2000 is maintenance free and requires no attention from shipboard personnel once fitted (automatic operation).
The MARIS S-VDR2000 is identical to the Wheelmark (EU) type approved VDR2000 except for the protective capsule. The S-VDR2000 meet and/or exceed relevant standards.
