 danelec logo(Birkeroed, Denmark – Sept. 14, 2015) – (Marine NewsWire) Danelec Marine CEO Hans Ottosen will speak at the SHIPPINGInsight 2015 Fleet Optimization Conference & Exhibition,  Oct. 13-14 in Stamford, Conn. 

Ottosen will address Ship Telematics Solutions, in a panel discussion of how major ship analytics and software suppliers are using real-time data to enhance shipboard performance and efficiency.

A leading marine electronics company, the Denmark-based Danelec Marine published a White Paper earlier this year calling for the use of a ship’s Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) as a data collection device for ship-to-shore transmission of data from shipboard sensors and systems. The White Paper demonstrates how a ship can transmit all necessary data sets through existing narrowband satellite communication channels for as little as one dollar per day.

“While the primary mission of the VDR is to record data for accident investigation, there is a strong case to be made for giving it a secondary role as the data hub for a shipboard telematics system, ” said Ottosen. “If properly designed with selective remote access functionality, the VDR can become the centerpiece of a ship data collection network, enabling ship managers to optimize ship performance and efficiency.”

Ottosen will share initial results from ship sea trials of VDRConnect during the panel discussion. The White Paper,  “VDR Connect Bridges the Data Gap” is available for free download at www.danelec-marine.com.
