This International Standard specifies the minimum requirements for the design, manufacture, integration and testing of integrated bridge systems (IBS) to comply with IMO resolution MSC.64(67), annex 1, of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), and other relevant IMO performance standards, in order to meet the functional requirements contained in applicable IMO instruments, not precluding multiple usage of equipment and modules or the need for duplication.
Reference is made, where appropriate, to IMO resolution MSC.64(67) annex 1, and text in this standard, the meaning of which is identical to that in the IMO resolution, is printed in italics and identified by the resolution paragraph numbers in brackets.
This standard aims to increase safe and efficient ship management by suitably qualified personnel taking care of, inter alia, uninterrupted functional availability of systems, and of human factors.
Operation of the IBS may conflict with the requirements for individual equipment. Such conflicts may imply modification to, or deviation from, individual equipment standards or the carriage of additional equipment. This standard highlights those deviations as well as their justification. Existing standards for individual equipment are not addressed.
