Hensoldt UK introduces Manta NEO INS

8th November 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Hensoldt UK has introduced its newest generation of integrated navigation systems (INS) for vessels, the Manta NEO. 

Deriving from the legacy Manta variant, the NEO INS introduces a simplified menu structure similar to mobile phones, as well as a faster processor and a more secure Android-based platform.

The user interface allows for ease of operation, and the NEO allows for full integration with existing navigation equipment and sensors.

‘When developing Manta NEO, our intent was to create a common structure across all integrated products within the platform,’ Kevin Robertson, director of cruise and special projects, said. 

‘We have also made better use of the screen area to show radar and the information provided by the Electronic Chart Display and Information System [ECDIS]. 

‘The new Manta NEO multi-function displays provide configurable access to all tasks critical to navigation - radar, ECDIS, conning displays [and] bridge alarm management, greatly improving situational awareness.’
