Poseidon Navigation Services has launched its new Challenger software system, for management of the delivery of digital charts and weekly navigational updates.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The system provides updates for Admiralty Paper Charts & Publications, AVCS, ADP and e-NP digital products, allowing the end user to manage onboard holdings and receive updates either by a direct sync service or by receiving weekly e-mails.

Poseidon, an International Admiralty Chart Agent and Digital Distributor, notes that Challenger has received approvals from the Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA), the UK Hydrographic Office, as well as flag states including Panama, Marshall Islands, Singapore, and the Isle of Man.

“(Challenger) offers complete compliance with all industry regulations, while offering end users a platform for receiving ENC permits instantly,” said Thomas Gunn, managing director of Poseidon Navigation Services.

“Our Route Planner offers the navigating officer the chance to plot the vessel’s intended route, select which Admiralty products are needed for the voyage, and order any missing items by communicating directly with our server via e-mail or direct internet connection.”

Poseidon has also launched a web-based ordering functionality for Admiralty Digital Products in conjunction with Marine Software Solutions, used to view current vessel inventories and monitor all digital navigational product spending per vessel.{/mprestriction}
