Seall Passage Planner Gains AIS Feature

Posted by Michelle Howard
Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Jargoon announced that a new interface to AIS Hub has been added to their Seall Passage Planner (SPP). 

The passage planning software which was launched in November 2013, provides Automatic Identification System (AIS) by using the SPP Virtual AIS Radar. This feature allows the mariner to quickly access the vessel traffic in any areas within the coverage of the Hub’s traffic tracking service, and display the collated data to the mariner during passage planning. A simple mouse click or touch gesture will provide an immediate virtual sweep of traffic reporting within a configurable range of the selected point. Passage plans can then easily be modified to avoid areas of traffic congestion.

In addition to the Virtual AIS radar there is also a quick search facility that will scan all receivers in the network allowing a user to search for a given vessel by name or IMO number.

Vessels with gross tonnage (GT) of 300 metric tons or more, and all passenger ships regardless of their size must comply with the AIS regulations of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) set by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
