An Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) is a geographic information system used for nautical navigation that complies with International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations as an alternative to paper nautical charts.
ECDIS equipment complying with SOLAS requirements can be used as an alternative to paper charts. Besides enhancing navigational safety, ECDIS works to ease the navigator’s workload with its automatic capabilities such as route planning, route monitoring, automatic ETA computation and ENC updating. In addition, ECDIS provides other sophisticated navigation and safety features, including continuous data recording for later analysis.
The Simrad ECDIS systems are Type-Approved, competitively priced and benefit from modern and easy to learn user interfaces.
