SevenCs launches digital navigation software

SevenCs apr 30

SevenCs, part of the ChartWorld Group, has announced the release of its ORCA Pilot X software. Originally designed as a primary navigation aid for Pilots, ORCA Pilot X is a tool for professional navigators and is being offered as a free download on the Apple AppStore for iOS tablets.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Following the feedback and input from its users, SevenCs began the development of ORCA Pilot X as the natural evolution from ORCA Pilot G2.

Ralf Lehnert, SevenCs’ director of Navigation Solutions, explained: “Time and time again we were told there was a need for a completely fresh approach and redesign of the digital navigation aids to meet the ever-expanding professional needs of the Pilot community. We had a look at what was on the market, balanced that against what could be developed, and realised there was an opportunity to provide a system that included the best hardware and software, delivered a unique 3D Head-Up situational awareness mode, rapid installation of official ENCs and chart updates, bathymetric data, route planning, navigation, and docking modes.

“Simply put, it’s an awesome piece of software developed for those with the industry’s most demanding requirements: Pilots and leading professionals.”

Oliver Schwarz, business development director at ChartWorld, said: “ChartWorld’s ECDIS as a service model really shook up the commercial shipping navigation industry, and we make no secret about planning to do the same thing here.”

“ORCA Pilot X is a significant step forward in the navigation tech available, not exclusively to Pilots, but to all professional seafarers. The iOS software is free, the only associated cost is the price of the charts, which are readily available from our web shop.”

    As part of the European Union (EU) Recognised Organisation (RO) Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme, EIZO Corporation has been awarded type approval from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for its 19 and 25.5 inch maritime monitors for an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) with radar applications, the first European certificate for electrical equipment in Japan.

    The EU RO Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme covers type approval certification on selected components and equipment for which mutually agreed technical requirements have been developed and agreed by all stakeholders in the EU RO Group, ensuring consistency for different types of equipment.

    EIZO’s current line of DuraVision ECDIS monitors (FD2603W, FDU2603WT, FDS1904, FDS1904T) were issued the certificate. These monitors are built specifically for harsh maritime conditions and are calibrated at EIZO’s own factory to meet the highly specialised requirements of ECDIS systems. EIZO offers optional optical bonding for each model which is also produced in-house.

    Kazuhide Shimura, executive operating officer, EIZO Corporation commented: “Meeting requirements for major maritime classifications such as LR is extremely important in demonstrating that our products are proven for use in harsh environments. EU RO MR ensures that EIZO continues to provide a high degree of customer assurance to system integrators and end users in the maritime market, regardless of their location.”

    Fumio Kure, LR’s general manager in Japan said: “We are proud that LR was able to issue this certificate at this time as we had to rely on remote surveying capability for the approval as surveyor attendance was hindered by COVID-19 challenges. Congratulations to EIZO for obtaining EU RO MR Type Approval certificate in addition to LR class type approval.”
