Instant and portable situational awareness.

The Challenges

The concern among captains and navigation officers is the loss of accurate movements of vessels on official charts should the ECDIS fail, as it will leave them blind and susceptible to collisions. The situation becomes critical when failures of the ECDIS systems happen in restricted navigable waters, such as in the approaches to ports, canal or river passages.

Tenders or smaller sub-vessels may struggle when entering ports or shorelines if they do not follow the right channel and do not have full visibility given by an ECDIS.
