New Nav Add-On from Rose Point

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Rose Point Releases Pilot Add-On Rose Point Navigation Systems, supplier of navigation software for pilots and operators of light commercial vessels, announced the release of a new Pilot Display Add-on for Rose Point ECS. Many commercial pilots carry aboard a Laptop and use it as a Portable Pilot Unit. They use Rose Point ECS to connect to the pilot plug data stream and display real time navigation on up-to-date NOAA charts. The software processes AIS and GPS information to calculate important events, such as passing points and closest point of approach (CPA). The software also possesses other features such as: the voyage recorder, a predictor that displays position based on rate of turn, variable route leg cross track limit display, channel passing arrangements, ownership vessel data updating, among others.

The new Pilot Display Add-on includes a graphical window that displays pilotage information that is large, clear, and easy to read from a distance. The display shows: heading, course over ground (COG), speed over ground (SOG) and a graphical cross track error indicator. Users can adjust the size of the text by adjusting the size of the window; doing so ensures that the information can be viewed from a great distance. Pilots often use this information as they walk around the bridge of a vessel, preferring to use data from their own system which they are more familiar with. The new Pilot Add-on enables pilots to concentrate on navigating; because they know they will always be able to get accurate information from a familiar, known system, rather than relying on data conveyed by crew members or unfamiliar systems already onboard the vessel. It creates a comfort level previously unavailable and allows the pilots to focus on their tasks.
