In addition to the six cameras, the installation package also includes an Axiom MFD, the central computer for controlling the cameras and a device for object recognition, according to Raymarine the “heart of the system”. There are two cameras on each side as well as a front and rear camera. The system is intended to cover ships up to 50 feet in size, i.e. around 15 meters in length.
