  1. ACR Electronics, Inc. has introduced RAPIDTRACK - a simplified Voyage Data Recorder (S-VDR) with either a Hardened Capsule or a Float Free 406 Memory Capsule. The S-VDR is designed to record and maintain the ship's data. Like the black boxes on aircraft, S-VDR provides accident investigators with information recorded before an incident.

    The RAPIDTRACK meets the IMO Performance Standard A.861(20), the MED Directive 1999/35/EC and IEC 61996. It is also EC-type approved (Wheelmark). All data is stored in compact flash memory on a hard disk in the RAPIDTRACK as well as in an external memory capsule of which there are two types.

    The ACR-designed Float Free 406 Memory Capsule (now awaiting agency (approvals) records and stores a retrievable record of the ship┬╣s nautical, technical and safety data from the S-VDR main unit. Small, light and function-rich, the ACR Float Free 406 is built in a sturdy float-free EPIRB polycarbonate case and, when deployed, is capable of automatically broadcasting satellite-detectable GPS coordinates for up to seven days to aid location and retrieval.
