Nautisk automates ECDIS updates

Nautisk has launched an automated ECDIS chart updating system, integrated into a new hardware product called NaviUpdate.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The system is designed to automatically provide updates to an onboard ECDIS without the need for any manual operation or use of CDs, DVDs or USB devices. NaviUpdate acts as a server on the bridge delivering the updated information directly to the ECDIS.

The unit is protected by a firewall and anti-virus software to reduce the risk of the ECDIS becoming infected with malware transferred through the use of flash drives or CDs from internal and external sources.

“NaviUpdate streamlines bridge operations, ensuring compliance automatically anywhere in the world while enhancing cyber security. But it also goes that one step further in delivering real time vessel tracking and monitoring to shore systems,” said John Dawson, Nautisk’s head of marketing.

“Utilising multiple data streams such as GPS, AIS, ARPA, it has the ability to monitor RPM, oil, temperature, fuel state and more.”

“Making real-time data from onboard sensors much more transparent is a huge benefit for operators who are keen to analyse data for improved performance management. Confidence in a secure connection at the right price will really unlock the potential of data analytics within the shipping industry.”

The system was developed in partnership with MarineMTS, and is compatible with existing shipboard communications systems, such as VSAT, FleetBroadband or GSM. The unit is also compatible with the rest of Nautisk’s existing product portfolio.

NaviUpdate is a subscription-based service for a fixed monthly fee, with a single invoice for single or multiple vessels.{/mprestriction}
