Transas Receives Award for Innovation

Tuesday, May 20, 2003
Transas won the Cruise & Ferry Award for the 'Best innovation in safety systems or safety technology'. A panel of judges distinguished the Transas idea of integrating AIS and ECDIS for collision avoidance as the best nomination. The AIS & ECDIS combination has been recognized as an onboard solution to avoid accidents and to improve safety and security at sea. Among the indisputable practical benefits of this interfacing, presented by Transas to the marine community, are prompt access to information; data archiving; 3-level target identification; explicit target presentation; route monitoring and additional information services. Andrey Vorobiev, General Manager of the Transas Navigation Product Unit, commented on this success: "We hope that giving this award to our new generation Navi-Sailor ECDIS will help better promote the benefits of the integration technology on the ship's bridge. We see a huge potential in combining the ECDIS and AIS technologies and want to incorporate this belief into our products". Transas Navi-Sailor 3000 ECDIS has been designed in line with the latest IMO regulations for UAIS interface. As such, Navi-Sailor 3000 ECDIS has been provided with the capability to send, receive and display UAIS transponder information exactly as it is prescribed by international requirements. Compliance is achieved in the UAIS message format, content and interface of the send/receive facility, while full static, voyage and ship movement data are displayed on the electronic chart screen in strict accordance with the international standards. In April 2003, Transas Navi-Sailor 3000 ECDIS received a DNV (Det Norske Veritas) type approval Certificate.
