SAAB - R5 Supreme GPS

Saab’s IMO-compliant Navigation systems have been the top choice for professional mariners for over a decade. Saab now proudly offers the R5 SUPREME Nav Mk II system featuring the all-new R5 Navigation sensor with reliability, performance and flexibility like no other type approved system on the market.

The R5 Supreme NAV products are self-monitoring and extremely user friendly. The R5 Supreme NAV system utilises the highly versatile R5 CDU and, with an option of R4 Sensors and antennas, it represents one of the most flexible navigation systems on the market.

The large colour touch-screen display and intuitive graphical user interface makes operation both visually appealing and easy. The multitude of interfaces make the system highly appropriate for integration into modern networked bridge solutions. The network interface may also be used to connect several systems in redundant configuration or to add additional passive displays.
