OFFICER OF THE WATCH CAMERA ASSISTANT AND MASTERS EVIDENCE
Explain your idea in details:
The officer of the Watch camera assistant will be installed in ships to capture and assist the Officer of the watch and the Captain by providing him with he best necessary information because it will allow pressure in him to decrease and alsoallow him to multi task at once . The Camera will be able to also show on the Bridge providing the Captain with the full view of the vacinity and will also be his evidence on declaring the OFF HIRE OR OFF CHARTER , he will be able to explain the conditions of the sea at that particular time , and be able to Capture his best moments . The camera will be inserted with the tracker so that when fallen over board they will be able to still hvae the information required .
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The Owner and the Master of the vessel will both be provided with evident and there wont be any need for them to have a dispute on what happened and who's fault was it . The Cameras also that will be inserted on the Port and Starboard will be able capture the pirate at a long range without even using the AIS[Automatic Identification system] which usually becomes a problem when identifying the smaller vessels . The Captain will know by clear image the size and actual distance of the other ship or other vessels without even wanting to go outside the bridge and will know which vessels are at his sight . The officer of the Watch will just connect and also have a view in his gadget seeing what happening on the port side while his in the Starboard side .
Plans for implementation and sustainability
When implicating this Kind of an Idea is very easy and very accurate , just getting your self wireless cameras that can connect on a wider range and insert those cameras to benefit your working environment , putting them on the Starboard , port , stern and focastle . The cameras since they are water resistant they will be away from swells and wont have any effect . Will benefit the Company also because can use those small videos and images to create a good name about the company and be used usefully in terms of Marketing especially in Cruise Liners .
