SevenCs releases new ECDIS Kernel

A new version of the SevenCs ECDIS Kernel SDK (Software Development Kit) has been released, version 5.20, designed to meet future ECDIS requirements and standards.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The latest version of the system – built to meet IEC 61174 Standard edition 4.0, IHO S-52 Presentation Library edition 4.0, and IHO S-64 Test Standard edition 3.0 – aims to reduce implementation irregularities and improve the overall usability of chart display systems.

“A major focus of the release version 5.20 has been laid on detection and indication of danger and caution objects,” said Eric Rottman, Kernel SDK product manager.

“Now it is specified which objects have to be treated as navigational hazards, areas for which special conditions exist and safety contour related objects.”

The new version also reflects revised definitions for the chart, and mariner’s settings, such as in display categories, viewing of group layers and in display selectors. It also allows for the display of the past status of a chart at any time interval based on the applied chart updates, as well as performing listings of objects in pick reports according to the chart settings.

A new test frame has additionally been developed, which is included in the new software version and supports all S-64 chart display tests.{/mprestriction}
