SevenCs and CEACT Information Systems Inc. announce the latest development of their inland navigation system CEACT. The new version includes two new major functionalities which will allow operating the vessel safer and more efficiently. The new version will be available November 2012.
Multiple CPA enables the user to track several AIS targets simultaneously. The operator can toggle between the most relevant targets without re-acquiring. Dangerous targets don’t get lost and the situational awareness is significantly improved.
The second functionality does not only improve safety, but also allows the user to save fuel. The Overtaking Calculation shows nicely and easily to understand how long overtaking a vessel will take and mark a position in the chart where it will be completed. Narrow passages, overtaking prohibited areas and upcoming traffic can be identified at a very early stage, which allows a timely adjustment of the Revolution per Minute (RPM – frequency of rotation) and a more fuel-efficient handling of the vessel.
Among all other improvements which have been implemented in the 2013 version the enhanced graphic user interface for target tracking is probably the most relevant. Acquiring and reading out target data can now be done with just two clicks and up to four times faster than in previous versions.
Greg Dunkle, Managing Director of CEACT Information Systems Inc., said: “Constant improvement of CEACT is our core value and the new version is the best CEACT we have ever had. But what makes me even happier are the features we are currently seeing in our development labs. There is certainly more interesting news to expect from SevenCs and CEACT Information Systems Inc. in the future!”
