The scope of supply included the NS 4000 Pilot software, Alaska TX-97 Electronic Chart coverage and a product software upgrade program. NS 4000 Pilot software was initially developed in cooperation with the Pilot Services of the Swedish Maritime Authorities. Based on the IMO type approved Navi-Sailor 4000 ECDIS software, the NS 4000 Pilot has been adopted to meet the specific requirements of maritime pilots.

While certain ECDIS functions not required in pilotage have been removed to streamline the user interface, a wide range of pilot specific features have been added. Functionality such as AIS connectivity through Bluetooth, an extensive ship’s library, enhanced route planning, user chart layers, docking mode, maneuvering predictor and a voice note and logbook recording feature are all included in the standard software. Charts formats that can be used are either the Transas TX-97 charts or the official HO ENC’s. The Transas chart updating software, Chart Assistant is included as well in order to keep the chart databases complete and up to date.

The NS 4000 Pilot PPU system can be supplied as software only for installation on a Pilot’s existing PC hardware, or as a complete PPU including ruggedized laptop PC’s, Bluetooth AIS Pilot Port Repeater and a handheld PDA.
