Jasmine Nahorniak, Chris Romsos, and Captain Jeff Crews evaluate the to-scale mock-up of the bridge layout planned for the Regional Class Research Vessel. The purpose of the mock-up is to optimize the layout of the bridge by minimizing blind spots and poor ergonomics. The model is located in the Nypro building and your thoughts and comments are welcomed. Contact Clare Reimers or Demian Bailey.
