The R-class vessels are designed in accordance with the polar code with LR NAV1 notation, ensuring safe operation in remote regions, including the Arctic.
The supply package will include four multi-functional work stations for chart radar, ECDIS and conning, as well as a separate work station for conning and route planning. Digital X- and S-band radars will be fully integrated, as well as a high precision NP5400 trackpilot, gyro compasses, and other sensors. The system also includes a rack for PCs, network components and extenders.  
Synapsis NX is fully compliant with the latest IMO and International Electrotechnical Commission performance and test standards.
