Martek to launch ECDIS

Martek plans on launching mid-2013 its own ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System) which will feature an inbuilt GSM modem.

The product, called iECDIS, is currently being submitted for type approval.

Powered by Jeppesen charts, the system will have an inbuilt GSM modem that will allow Notices to Mariners to be downloaded at sea.

UK-based manufacturer Martek says that this GSM modem can take weather and piracy updates on the move and give “automatic instant seasonal route planning”.

Instead of a traditional hard drive, this ECDIS will also be equipped with a solid state drive (SSD).
