The contract is for two years, with an optional three-year extension.

Jeppesen says that its IHMS will provide the MPA with tools to produce, update and maintain charts, both in paper and electronic formats. The system will utilise the Jeppesen Bathymetric Management system to store and handle existing and new bathymetric data, while a Digital Source Handling system will be applied to provide traceability throughout the production line, covering the cycle from source registration to product release and maintenance.

A dKart Feature Object Database (FODB) will also be used to handle all feature objects as a single object; maintenance of objects in the FOBD is performed once and can then be applied to each digital product the object is referenced to.

Different levels of training are available for basic users, advanced users, and system and database administrators.

“Jeppesen is proud to have earned this contract with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore,” said John Klippen, senior product manager in charge of Jeppesen’s HydroService.

“We are looking forward to working alongside the MPA and helping them achieve their objectives implementing our technological solutions to help achieve the agency’s objectives.”
