New ADMIRALTY digital publications edition

Dec 06 2013

The United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) has launched its latest edition of ADMIRALTY Digital Publications (ADP) - version 14.

Free as an upgrade to existing users and available as a three-month free trial to new customers, ADP v14 will provide on board navigation teams with many new features that will help them to plan their voyages in a safe and efficient manner, the UKHO said.

New content and greater ease-of-use, plus integration with the ADMIRALTY e-Navigator back-of-bridge software solution are offered in the updated version.

And with 75% of the world's fleet of vessels over 2,000 gt now approved to use digital publications in place of their paper equivalent, for the majority it also aids compliance.

ADP is a suite of digital navigation publications, comprising ADMIRALTY Digital List of Lights, ADMIRALTY TotalTide and, ADMIRALTY Digital Radio Signals Volume 6.

The new and improved features available in ADP v14 include the ability to view ADP in ADMIRALTY e-Navigator's planning station, the back-of-bridge software solution that is used by on board navigation teams for voyage planning, chart management. ADP v14 can be displayed over ADMIRALTY Vector Charts Service (AVCS), or ADMIRALTY Raster Charts Service (ARCS) data within e-Navigator to help with voyage planning.

Hugh Phillips, UKHO’s head of product management, said: "The UKHO has continued to invest in the development of ADMIRALTY nautical products and services in order to provide the seafarer with the very latest benefits of a digital format, including additional functionality and data, presented in an easy-to-read and easy-to-use format. What is more, integration of ADP v14 with e-Navigator and AVCS means that it becomes a really powerful tool for voyage planning."
