This paper presents a tabletop application used to explore the potential of tabletops on maritime ship bridges. We have constructed four conceptual scenarios for tabletops in everyday ship operations. An initial study consists of creating video prototypes within a full-sized bridge simulator. These scenarios correspond to tasks regularly performed by a ship's crew. We have introduced an interactive surface to a bridge simulator to conduct an inquiry of bridge officers. Future research should introduce tabletops to a real bridge to investigate their use in a real environment. © 2013 Authors.
