Transas presenting pilot-dedicated solutions at UK conference

(LONDON) — Transas Marine, a world-leading provider of high-tech equipment for the maritime industry, will present its solutions for pilots at the UK Marine Pilot Association (UKMPA) conference, taking place in London on Nov. 4-5.

Transas will display the Transas Pilot PRO chart plotter and the recently launched T-Mapper desktop chart conversion and editing application.

The latest release of the iPad version of Transas Pilot PRO features new functionalities such as AIS Target Table, allowing for quick real-time filtering and search between hundreds of AIS targets, AIS targets meeting points, including graphical presentation of CPA (closest point of approach) and BCR (bow crossing range) points, and the Tidal Widget for a selected tidal reference point. Secured AIS feed over Internet allows integration with the Transas Vessel Traffic System in order to receive real-time AIS targets in defined areas. In addition, the Pilot PRO’s user interface now supports the Portuguese language.

The T-Mapper software is a powerful tool for prompt multi-format chart editing of a selected port area, which supports ENC, bENC and Transas TX-97 chart formats. The T-Mapper allows port hydrographers to alter chart object information based on notices provided by local HOs between official chart releases and share this data with the Transas Pilot PRO users. 

The Transas Pilot PRO and the T-Mapper significantly improve efficiency of pilotage and other on-board operations and are used by many regional professional pilot associations.
