Martek launches connected ECDIS

ADVERTISEMENT

UK-based maritime electronics manufacturer Martek Marine has launched iECDIS, the first model to integrate a GSM modem to offer automatic download and installation of charts, updates and notices to mariners.

The modem uses a mobile network signal to download recent items, including the most recent piracy warnings and weather forecasts, which can be overlaid on the chart display itself.



IECDIS is available on lease as well as purchase, allowing user to transfer costs to system integration, crew training and chart licensing instead.



“We’ve created a market-leading solution that combines cutting-edge technology with a lucrative commercial proposition and a system that mariners will want to use and ship managers will find easy to adopt,” said Bentley Strafford-Stephenson, ECDIS product specialist at Martek Marine. “It’s a rugged piece of military-spec hardware, powered by time-tested, trusted Jeppesen software, with features such as weather, radar, piracy and ice-chart overlays and route planning. It’ll have freely updatable charts and software updates that will only take minutes to upload.”
