    NAVTOR claims world first with ADMIRALTY e-Nautical Publications integration into NavStation

    NAVTOR has announced that the world’s first digital chart table, NavStation, is now the first software to offer fully integrated ADMIRALTY e-Nautical Publications (AENPs). The feature has been added as an option on the upcoming NavStation 4.1 release, and will simplify information management for navigators, and support route planning and compliance with SOLAS regulations and Port State Authorities, NAVTOR said in its press release.

    NavStation has been creating waves since its launch in 2014, when it became the first software platform to allow navigators to easily gather, view and manage all critical voyage information - such as weather and tidal data - in one place. Continual development has enhanced functionality, with the 4.0 version, launched earlier this year, offering a unique Passage Planning module to automate data input, reduce human error and share planned routes across entire fleets.

    “This latest 4.1 release marks another leap forward,” states NAVTOR CEO Tor Svanes. “AENPs, essentially electronic versions of UKHO’s market leading ADMIRALTY Nautical Publications, are essential tools for providing easy access to accurate and comprehensive maritime data. By integrating them into NavStation we continue the process of streamlining all vital navigational information into one interface – with everything a navigator needs at their fingertips.

    “Bridge officers can now seamlessly register, access, licence and update all AENPs from within NavStation – meaning they don’t have to switch from software to software. This makes it easier to ensure their vessels are always fully compliant, with the very latest publications for their operational needs.”

    He continues: “There’s so much information available, and compulsory today, that management can be time-consuming, and complex. NavStation 4.1 simplifies that by collecting everything in one place. We’re very proud that UKHO has worked with us to consolidate those benefits with this trailblazing AENP integration.”

    UKHO currently offers a range of some 87 AENPs - with key titles including Sailing Directions, Ocean Passages for the World, the Nautical Almanac, and the Mariner’s Handbook - which are approved for use by the Flag States of over 80% of ships trading internationally.

    “We are pleased that NAVTOR have chosen to include AENPs in their latest NavStation release,” comments Product Manager at UKHO Nicholas Dekkers. “Integration of AENPs within the software solutions of chart agents, will help to simplify processes on board and give mariners easy access to accurate ADMIRALTY information in a compliant and easy to use format.”

    NavStation is available on standard computers and touch screen devices, allowing users to simply grab, swipe and manoeuvre all overlaid layers of information. Further features include the integrated NavTracker vessel management function and dynamically optimised routes to improve decision making and reduce fuel use and emissions.

    NAVTOR launched in 2011, releasing its breakthrough ENC service to the market in 2012, including the world’s first ever Pay As You Sail option. It has now built a network of offices spanning Norway, Singapore, Japan, Sweden, Russia, the US, and UK, alongside a growing global client base.
