ECDIS is a computer-based navigation information system compliant with latest International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations and can be used as an alternative to paper nautical charts. An ECDIS system displays the information from electronic navigational charts (ENC) and integrates position information from the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), gyrocompass, speed log, other navigational sensors, radar and automatic identification systems (AIS). Transas delivers a full range of type-approved ECDIS solutions that can be stand-alone or part of the Integrated Navigation Systems or Multifunctional Display i.e. Radar, Conning, Bridge Alarm Management, Track Control in one workstation. Transas ECDIS provides easy and unique possibilities for customization.
Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) is the official chart data compiled for ECDIS systems in accordance with SOLAS regulations. Before the ENCs can be presented in the ECDIS, they must be converted to the system’s own internal format, which creates System Electronic Navigation Charts (SENC).
Transas performs the conversion to SENC before sending the data to the vessel. This allows us to test and validate the data as well as relieve the onboard personnel from the time consuming conversion to SENC.
