First S-VDR Type Approval

Kelvin Hughes successfully achieves Type Approval from QinetiQ for its MantaDigital™ Simplified Voyage Data Recorder.

Building on its success in the Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) market, the system is based on the group’s proven technology in the aviation field making it the only S-VDR that is completely designed and manufactured within a single organisation.

Testing was successfully concluded recently with QinetiQ, the UK government’s nominated body for UK Type Approval of marine equipment.

Peter Goddard, Head of Approval at QinetiQ said:
There can be a rush to fit new equipment as the mandatory carriage dates get close. QinetiQ is please to help by arranging type approval so that early availability of proven equipment helps installation schedules.
