BENTLEY Marine Custom Ship Equipment, Machinery integration and Development.

Aerospace Developed Motion Control Systems: Fully automatic computerized stabilization systems for monohulls, catamarans, hydrofoils and SWATHs. Each Motion Control System is custom  designed for the specific use, after carefully evaluating the given motions of the vessel through a computer simulation test. Unlike the common pair of hydraulic actuated fins widely available that can only provide roll control, our aerospace developed systems use avionics software to control roll, pitch, heave and yaw through a series of devices that can include a A-Foil or T-Foil in the bow with a pair of custom trim tabs called interceptors. The Motion Control Systems can be integrated with the autopilot to provide the ultimate precision in navigation.

Fully Integrated Machinery Control, Monitoring and Alarm Systems: Our aircraft designed touch-screen panels control and monitor all ship systems and integrate all ship controls and monitoring systems, making it possible to control and  diagnose more than 700 equipment in one single screen. A normal installation will use 4 to 5 interactive touch-screen panels for back-up and multi-reading. Custom installations allow the crew to access all ship systems from specific points in the boat, provided they have individual access PIN codes. Another plus of this system is that all data is continuously collected and recorded for easy diagnosis and all ship equipment is wired and inter-connected through a LAN system with a single wire to the bridge. This saves miles of wiring harness and lots of money in equipment and installation. Internet access is available for quick service diagnosis and ship owners monitoring of their vessels from remote locations.
