The Admiralty Digital List of Radio Signals (ARDS) Volume 1,3,4,5 is now available for mariners who are mandated to comply with Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention requirements. This Admiralty Digital Publication (ADP) product is a must-have addition for the crews of all sea-going vessels who are making the switch from traditional paper-based, to digital, publications.
The full portfolio of ADP offerings includes:
- Admiralty Digital List of Lights (ADLL): Fog and light signal information on over 70,000 light sources around the world.
- Admiralty Digital Radio Signals (ADRS)
- NEW - ADRS 1,3,4,5: includes details for communication by radio for relaying information related to weather, safety, telemedical assistance services, quarantines, safety and the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System.
- ADRS 2: Timekeeping and digital positional references to aid in navigation and keeping ships compliant.
- ADRS 6: Maritime radio information for 3,600 port service areas worldwide: pilot services, port operations and vessel traffic services.
- Admiralty TotalTide (ATT): Gives operations personnel the ability to predict tide height and stream data at over 3,000 ports and 7,000 tide stream locations globally.
Bridge crews may have access to multiple copies of each licensed ADP publication per vessel. This allows crews increased operational flexibility and gives the ability to access information where and when it is needed as well as always remaining fully SOLAS compliant.
ADP digital publications are more efficient than traditional maritime publications. Digital publications allow crews to quickly access stored information as well as facilitate instant real time collaboration between crew members giving them the ability to make the best decisions as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Over three-quarters of flag states recognize ADP as meeting SOLAS convention requirements and the IMO carriage of publications requirements on board ships in MSC-MEPC.2/Circ.2. Ships registered enjoy the same level of compliance when employing Admiralty Digital Publications as they do using traditional paper-based Admiralty publications.
Admiralty Digital publications can also be used with an ever-increasing number of back-of-bridge software applications, including the Admiralty e-Navigator Planning Station, and viewed overlaid on top of navigational charts. Increased and more efficient access to more timely information results in better decisions made by crew members, safer vessels and more profitable maritime ventures.
