Berthing Aid System

The Straatman Berthing Aid System, also known as the Docking Aid System, utilizes the most advanced laser and LED technology. This system measures the distance between the jetty and the side of an approaching vessel using laser technology. The measurements, including distance (both Bow and Aft), speed of approach, and angle, can be viewed on a standard PC as well as on a large LED display. Additionally, this LED display can present other critical parameters such as wind speed, current, wave conditions, and other essential data to ensure safe mooring.
