Edge computing offshore

The Onboard Server brings cloud capabilities on board, connecting your vessel and crew to the world. It turns your vessel into a smart device interfacing with every possible machine, system or sensor on board, and runs the apps available to your crew.

Simplifying complexity

The Onboard Server enables the integration, extraction and transmission (or interoperability) between data sources on board being it machines, systems or sensors. The server handles the complexity of the large number of different connection interfaces and data protocols.

Configuration, integration, and even support for new protocols is all done remotely. This is only possible because both hardware and software are designed and created by Onboard.

Ship apps for the crew

Next to data collection and processing, the Onboard Server offers the ability to run apps locally via standard containers. This serves to connect the crew and run analytics on the edge.

The availability of apps on board means the crew can continue working offline for extended periods of time. In addition, all updates for both the operating systems and apps are done with no disruption to service, so crew and staff can continue using apps no matter what.

Designed for life at sea

The technology for this exchange of information has been specially developed to cope with the challenging circumstances of communicating at sea and to safeguard the security of your data.

The Onboard Server is compact in size, fanless, and built to withstand harsh environmental factors, such as extended temperature ranges, voltage variations, shocks, vibrations, and high humidity. The rugged design of the Onboard Server enables it to function properly under extreme conditions.
