Rutter’s sigma S6 version 9.2.0 includes several enhancements, including:

  • Short term leasing of additional capabilities for existing sigma S6 systems
  • Navigational chart overlay support
  • Color radar display providing enhanced visual distinction of potential hazards
  • Enhanced vessel motion compensation
  • Proprietary Adaptive Sensitivity Time Control, improving near-range target detection
  • Enhanced target detection system for better detecting of smaller and fast moving targets
  • Image compression for sigma S6 Connect remote access, reducing bandwidth requirements
  • Mandarin Chinese (Simplified) language graphical user interface support (other languages to follow)
  • Integration of sigma S6 SeaFusion into base sigma S6 systems, reducing the required hardware footprint on-board vessels
  • Closest Point of Approach (CPA) and Time to Closest Point of Approach (TCPA) support
  • Numerous other feature and general maintenance improvements


Rutter president, Fraser Edison, commented: “sigma S6 version 9.2.0 is the result of numerous consultations with Rutter’s customer base. This step forward in the evolution of Rutter’s industry-leading technology is one we are confident will bring significant value to our users.”
