JRC Delivers ECDIS Pre-Filled with AVCS

July 12, 2010

UKHO and JRC have announced that shipping companies fitting a JRC ECDIS now have the additional benefit of instant access to the entire range of official global Admiralty ENCs. All JRC systems are now being preloaded in the factory with every AVCS chart.

The combination of JRC ECDIS and AVCS provides a navigation-ready, complete type-approved system that meets the needs of the shipping industry ahead of the introduction of compulsory ECDIS carriage.

The agreement delivers an integrated service which provides mariners with faster, more direct access to the world’s largest range of official ENCs, and makes it easier to obtain the data required for highly efficient passage planning and voyage execution.

The partnership is the latest in a series of innovations announced by the UKHO which is bringing its vision for a digital future of navigation to life, and which support the mariner through the transition from paper charts to digital technology. The integration with JRC ECDIS is another step in the delivery of a complete portfolio of enhanced, integrated services which make navigation and fleet management smarter, simpler and safer.
