The Triton


A Smart Bridge


The future of yachting is here and it’s on display in Darse Sud.

Palladium Technologies has created a buttonless bridge to integrate ship monitoring and controls for yachts. It incorporates the same technology in use with smart phones including pinching motions to make things bigger and smaller, touch and drag to pull items from menus, and swipe motions to collapse windows.

“I’ve always wanted a clean, flat glass bridge,” said Mike Blake, president of Palladium.

Palladium was an original beta software developer for the iPhone. The company also created the award-winning, Apple-based iSiMON and SiMON² products.

“SiMON GOLD is a key enabling technology, closing the gap between science fiction and reality and setting the standard for the glass bridge of the future,” Blake said.
