The Power Behind our Software

Marine Computer is our most powerful computer yet, designed to effortlessly run all of your Sonardyne software applications and those from third parties. Use it in a survey shack, install it in the bridge or rack mount it, Marine Computer works wherever you need it to.

Using a superfast processor to handle intensive workloads, Marine Computer is designed and configured to provide you with the best possible experience when using our suite of navigation, positioning and imaging software products, leaving you to concentrate on the job in hand.

However, you don’t have to be using Sonardyne software to use one. If you’re in the market for a robust and easily configured computer to run third-party software applications onboard your ship, survey boat or unmanned craft, Marine Computer is the perfect choice.
That’s because it’s certified to EN60945 and DNVGL-CG-0339 standards which means it meets regulatory requirements use on ships’ bridges and is able to withstand harsh operating environments and constant high temperatures are present.

Fanless computers like the Marine Computer are perfect for use in dirty or dusty marine environments where actively cooled systems could quickly clog up, overheat and fail. Inside is an Intel 8th generation processor and 512 GB wide operating temperature solid state disk. SSDs have no moving parts so are faster and more reliable that traditional hard disk drives. Temperature tolerant components contribute to its impressive wide operating temperature range.
All this makes the Marine Computer an extremely versatile and reliable tool in virtually any marine installation condition: desk mounted, in a small survey boat; within a ship’s bridge console; or, when supplied with a custom 2U chassis, mounted in a server room rack.
