Marine Autopilot

The highest standards of reliability and the functionality needed in a professional environment.

Simrad Autopilots are developed to provide commercial vessels with the highest standards of reliability and the functionality needed in a professional environment.

Commercial autopilots have evolved from simple course holding systems to adaptive computer systems that offer reduced fuel costs and optimal transit times, learning the characteristics of the vessel’s handling and minimize rudder movement and thus reducing drag on the vessel.

Autopilot Computers

The autopilot computer is the heart of the system, processing navigation data from the compass, GPS and instrument system to an output of smooth control of the rudder. We have a system to steer any vessel.

Rudder Feedback Units

Simrad rudder feedback units contribute to our reputation for controlled and accurate steering.

The RFU transmits a signal proportional to the rudder angle. It is mounted close to the rudder stock and is mechanically connected to the rudder by a transmission link in a 1:1 ratio.
