The Chosen Solution for Ice-Class Fleets and Arctic Drilling Operations
The sigma S6 system was specifically developed for ice detection in the ice-threatened oilfields of Eastern Canada. Rutters Ice Navigator™ installation base now includes many of the worlds ice breaker fleets as well as tankers, bulk carriers, research vessels and coast guard vessels from countries operating in Arctic and subarctic regions.
Ice Navigator™ systems have also been selected by oil and gas companies as part of their ice defence and ice management solutions where they are resident on platforms, drill ships, and specialty support vessels.
High Definition Ice Imaging
High resolution image processing provides high definition ice imaging, leading to superior detection and tracking. The sigma S6 user-interface provides adjustments to radar tuning to further customize the on-screen image.
AIS Overlay with Class A and B Targets
Class A and B AIS target overlay options are available with full information, radar tracks and target association display. The addition of class B targets enables the monitoring of transponders attached to ice threats and the verification smaller vessels in an operating area.
Track Multiple Targets
The sigma S6 ice Navigator™ advanced target tracker can monitor and track up to 300 targets simultaneously, ensuring the operator has complete awareness of all activity and targets within range of the radar.
Multiple Client Options
The sigma S6 remote client feature allows numerous remote clients to view the master system. The sigma S6 SeaBridge option is a low-bandwidth solution facilitating information sharing between a remote radar location and multiple networked clients viewing the Ice Navigator™ display.
SIGMA S6 CONNECT
Web-enabled interface allows external systems, such as Google Earth Pro and GIS platforms, to integrate with the sigma S6 Ice Navigator™ to display radar imaging, ice target information, and ice outlines.
Coastline Masks provide automatic masking of land areas based on a global coastline database. This prevents land areas from being classified as ice targets and greatly simplifies system operation when working near land.
Integration and control of IR cameras is facilitated through Rutters SeaView interface. Features include the ability to support multiple cameras, intelligent selection of a best camera for specific targets, and automatic slewing to ice targets entering a guard zone. These features support quick decision making in addressing potential threats and possible interruptions to operations.
Installations By Country
One platform, many solutions
Rutter’s sigma S6 technologies connect to most commercially available marine radars, enabling our customers to extract additional value and effectiveness from their existing navigation radar assets. The option of a dedicated high performance radar solution as an input sensor can also be provided to suit your specific requirements. As with all of Rutter’s sigma S6 product lines, Ice Navigator™ can be combined with any other Rutter system: Oil Spill Detection, Small Target Surveillance, SeaFusion Data Integration, and the WaMoS® II Wave Measuring System offered by OceanWaveS GmbH.
