A comprehensive digital catalogue of ADMIRALTY products
e-Navigator Planning Station gives bridge crews access to a catalogue of the widest range of SOLAS-compliant charts and publications available. This includes all the official charts and reference publications that are available from the ADMIRALTY Maritime Data Solutions portfolio.
Fast and efficient updates
Users can receive electronic updates for e-Navigator Planning Station by internet download, email or disc, which can be applied quickly and accurately with minimal human effort. In addition, it is easy to export information to ECDIS. This can help to save time on the bridge and reduce the risk of human error.
Easier navigational information management and ordering
An essential part of the passage-planning process is to ensure the navigational information for an intended route is up-to-date and complete.
With e-Navigator Planning Station, bridge officers can keep costs and download sizes under control by ordering only those charts and publications required for a specific voyage. With ADMIRALTY digital products and services, permits and data can be ordered and received immediately.
Bridge crews can select products for particular routes using e-Navigator Planning Station's geographical display. The update screen also pre-selects all updates that you have permits for that are available for download.
e-Navigator Planning Station lets bridge crews view when the ADMIRALTY digital products they carry were last updated, and allows them to easily print or export a range of reports to support inspections.
Quicker, more informed voyage-planning decisions
Within e-Navigator Planning Station bridge crews can overlay multiple ADMIRALTY products on one screen, making it easier to plan voyages and perform detailed analysis of intended routes.
ADMIRALTY products that can be overlaid on AVCS and ARCS include:
Extra navigational information displayed – ADMIRALTY Information Overlay (AIO)
AIO aids navigators at the crucial passage planning stage. It contains all ADMIRALTY Temporary and Preliminary Notices to Mariners (T&P NMs) and ENC Preliminary Notices to Mariners (EP NMs), which highlight navigationally significant differences between ENCs and ADMIRALTY paper charts.
AIO can be displayed as a single layer on top of ENCs in e-Navigator Planning Station, which is particularly valuable if the ECDIS on board does not display AIO. All AVCS customers receive AIO at no extra cost.
