This brand-new navigation-communications solution, i-Bridge® Air Wings manages all onboard marine systems using the latest 3D technology, multi-touch controls and joggers and features an integrated wing and a 4k stretch display. 

Although Marine Navigation, Control and Protection systems and all other technologies are widespread in the marine industry, these navigation, telecommunication, security and data transmission products are almost always represented by individual devices.

Over their 30 years of industry experience, TEAM Italia has tackled this challenge head-on, optimizing the functional integration of these devices and simplifying their use on board for the customer.

Through products such as the i-Bridge® Air Wings, TEAM Italia achieve this integration of the many maritime navigation systems that are now indispensable on board every yacht. The i-Bridge® Air Wings brings with it both ease of use and reaction velocity, thus increasing the safety level at sea. 

As well as distributed electronics, the i-Bridge® Air Wings features a 100% Italian cutting-edge design for creating panoramic wheelhouses on board. Based on ergonomic studies which were developed in-house by the company, I-Bridge® Air Wings allows users to enjoy easy handling with the highest standards of safety.

“The most innovative wheelhouse concepts are currently moving towards a clear change in the usability of this part of the yacht,” said Massimo Minnella, CEO of TEAM Italia. “The pilot house area has become panoramic, and the heavy structures which often used to hold the racks have been removed. By doing so, design has become an increasingly more important feature, creating pleasantly sociable areas which can be enjoyed by both owners and guests.”

“I-Bridge® Air Wings was designed in order to satisfy these requirements,” explains Daniele Ceccanti, President of TEAM Italia, “and we worked according to the architecture of distributed electronics. This enabled us to free up space by using a lighter design whilst still guaranteeing the very highest levels of safety onboard.”

At this year's Monaco Yacht show, I-Bridge® was realised and presented onboard seven superyachts: Benetti FB 268, M/Y SeaSense 67m, Rossinavi FR034, M/Y Aurora 49m, Sanlorenzo 123-52, M/Y Seven Sins 52m, Sanlorenzo Explorer 126-42, Custom Line Navetta 33.01, Perini Navi C2232 SY Seve60m and ISA Yacht 120.11 37m.

This new system also provides for the integration of the 3D monitoring developed by Onyx Marine Automation, one of the companies in the TEAM Italia Group.

“The 3D monitoring developed by Onyx Marine tracks out a new route on the panorama of supervision systems, guaranteeing unprecedented levels of usability. The innovative three-dimensional graphics are perfectly integrated into the I-Bridge® system and enhance its versatility, efficiency and design,” affirms Federico Sturlese, CTO of Onyx.
