In line with the ‘Black Box’ on airplanes, a Voyage Data Recorder is a piece of equipment fitted onboard ships that record the various data onboard a vessel that can be used for reconstruction of the voyage details and vital information during an accident investigation.
A ship’s VDR & SVDR are far superior to a black box of an airplane as they store a range of data and that too for a minimum of a period of 12 hours. The latest data continuously overwrite the data recordings of the last 12 hours. A VDR has the capability of resisting extreme weather, collisions, fires, and pressure conditions even when a vessel is at a depth of several meters in the sea.
