Transas, a global leader in professional marine navigation systems, has released a new version of its Transas Pilot PRO, an iPad-based chart plotter for professional pilots and mariners.
In a previous article by PTI, it was reported that Transas Marine had signed a multi-million dollar contract with the Centre for Simulator and Maritime Training (CSMART) to install Transas’ simulators at its facility.
Transas Pilot PRO is designed to make the job easier for pilots and other marine professionals in their stressful daily routine, helping to maintain efficient pilotage and other onboard operations.
Version 2.0.5 includes a vessel parking system (VPS), which ensures high precision docking as a result of real-time audiovisual information on external objects and manual parking safe distance limits.
Customised fender lines can be created and imported or exported, and ROT beeper sounds enhance the precision. Parking Safe Distance limits can be manually set by the operator for each vessel.
In addition to monthly updated Transas iTX-97 marine vector charts, Pilot PRO features a number of functions requested by pilots specifically to improve their daily efficiency including docking mode, a ship maneuvering predictor, and third party pilot sensors over wi-fi, weather service, internet AIS targets, tide and currents.
Transas were recently involved with a deal that saw it supply technical upgrades to around 100 of Maersk Line’s container ships.
