All SOLAS vessels are required to receive Maritime Safety Information including NavArea Warnings and often this will be via NavTex.
The world is divided into 21 NavAreas and the warnings for each area are provided by the area coordinator. For individual vessels to obtain all the relevant data and sort it in order of priority is a time consuming task. The ChartCo NavArea service removes all uncertainty and reduces the workload, presenting warnings through the PassageManager graphical interface and then inserting them into the passage plan.
ChartCo provides NavArea Warnings through a user friendly map-based interface so that navigating officers can easily see warnings affecting their route, both in the planning stage and during their passage. These can also be incorporated into the passage plan if required.
Unlike the NavTex service, ChartCo provides all NavArea warnings.
The NavArea service illustrates what ChartCo is all about; safety critical data, presented in a timely and user friendly manner and in a way that saves significant amounts of time.
- Daily warnings for all areas are provided by default but the vessel can choose to receive only certain areas if required.
- Visual representation via PassageManager makes it much easier to determine the relevance of individual NavArea Warnings.
- Embeds warnings into the passage plan.
- Comprehensive reporting allows for easy understanding of all in force warnings.
