Jeppesen Marine Donates to SCI

Thursday, March 19, 2009

Jeppesen Marine has donated its Workboat Navigator software packages to two Seamen’s Church Institute’s (SCI) Centers for Maritime Education for use in mariner training courses. Both the Paducah, Ky. and Houston, Texas facilities received four licenses to run on the installed simulators, plus an additional program for the lab computer.

Founded in 1834, SCI’s education facilities provide navigational training to mariners through simulator-based facilities. The Paducah education center is used for training inland mariners, and the Houston facility trains inland, coastal and deep-sea mariners. The institute is recognized by the U.S. government, including Congress, U.S. Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security, as well as the United Nations, the International Maritime Organization, the International Labor Organization and maritime trade associations.

Developed by Jeppesen Marine, Workboat Navigator is an information service that provides navigation software along with data needed to operate in a river or coastal environment. Features include: autopilot, voyage data record, video camera support, AIS, radar integration, real-time data updating via NavData Update Service, and complete integration with onboard sensor equipment to ensure operators have the right information when they need it. Comprehensive 24/7 service and support is also included.

Jeppesen Marine is a provider of vessel operations services and digital navigation solutions, based on worldwide vector chart data type approved to ISO19879, meteorological information and transmission technologies. Jeppesen Marine offers a wide range of navigation and operations products and services to both light and commercial marine markets.
