Progress in the development of navigation systems and computer technology opens new possibilities with regard to integrated bridge systems. Studies indicate a potential for improvements in terms of both safety and efficiency. This paper presents a bridge concept that exploits the state-of-the-art technology. Key elements in the concept are the electronic chart system (ECDIS), the nautical information display (NID), and the ARPA/radar unit. The proposed solution to Integrated Total Control of the Bridge (ITB) has been evaluated by simulator. A significant reduction of the operator workload in restricted waters was verified. There is, however, still room for considerable improvement in this area of vessel operation
