Jeppesen Simplifies Routing, Chart Management

NauticalManager from Jeppesen allows mariners to easily plan, generate and document routes using an ECDIS and onboard PC. It also makes it simple to create the reports required by port state control and class auditors for checking a vessel’s ECDIS compliance.

NauticalManager eases the bridge-side burden of ENC management by making it simple to order Official ENCs, review the chart portfolio and integrate temporary and preliminary Notices to Mariners.

NauticalManager was developed after ECDIS users requested a way to simply or automatically plan routes that are in compliance with the ECDIS mandate. It features automated route planning and chart selection – resulting in better voyage planning and less time spent managing digital information.

Routes are generated from a database containing thousands of waypoints, legs and ports, allowing a mariner to simply edit a recommended route and transfer it straight to an ECDIS. With NauticalManager, users also can create a semi-automatic route from anywhere on a chart.

The NauticalManager software can also integrate supplementary data layers that provide:
•ENC Notices to Mariners, including daily temporary and preliminary (T&P) notices
•DNV-recognized weather information
•Accurate piracy overviews
•Notification before charts expire
•Weekly updates of the entire chart portfolio
•Notification when new charts, weather updates and chart licenses are available

The ability to plan a route according to weather and traffic conditions and with the right charts can increase savings in a competitive shipping market, said Jeppesen’s product manager Geir Olsen: “If a ship is detained in port due to a lack of charts or outdated charts, expenses are huge compared to the almost insignificant cost of obtaining the charts.”

“In addition to charts, mariners and ship operators need products and services that improve safety and efficiency and save money. Outdated weather faxes directly affect efficiency, for example. Access to data about the latest piracy incidents is also crucial for maintaining security and international ship and port security(ISPS)levels in certain areas.”

To increase user friendliness, NauticalManager guides mariners through the process of route planning, chart selection and ordering and the downloading of weather forecasts. The solution also comes with instructions on how to keep a chart database up to date and how to export chart licenses to the ECDIS/ECS. Selecting chart updates is done at the click of a button.

The NauticalManager software is available to Jeppesen customers at no additional cost; users pay only for data, such as weather and piracy information and chart licenses. Piracy information comes through a subscription to Jeppesen Piracy Service, while a three-month trial subscription to the Jeppesen ENC and weather services is included with the software. This provides access to a global ENC portfolio, marine weather forecasts, tropical cyclone warnings and information about oceanic currents and ice conditions.

NauticalManager can be used on most onboard PCs through marine VSAT or other fleet broadband connections and also supports email communication protocol.
