ADMIRALTY Passage Planner
Confidence in ship clearance calculations
Correct industry standard squat and clearance calculations are automatically selected according to the confined water situation.
The results are constantly checked against given parameters, highlighting any potential dangers that may become obvious in the current passage plan. Users do not have to manually re-check all calculations when there are changes to the plan, and are confident that they will be informed if the plan does not meet the safety criteria they have set.
Integrates with other ADMIRALTY applications
Seamless integration allows key information to be automatically updated and re-validated when dates, times and other key facts change - saving repetitive manual re-work.
Integrating with ADMIRALTY TotalTide allows users to automatically add tidal heights and times to the passage plan report and to squat calculations.
It also allows the user to check the validity of AVCS permits against the proposed passage schedule.
Easy to share, store and archive
Passage plans are stored as a single compressed PDF file, and include a detailed summary of tidal predictions and AVCS permit status for the planned passage.
The document can be printed or shared with other ADMIRALTY Passage Planner users, like shipping companies and sister ships.
Intuitive wizards for key tasks
Bridge officers are guided through more complex processes with wizard pages so that a consistent and accurate result is achieved quickly.
The use of wizards makes the application consistent with the other ADMIRALTY Maritime Products & Services.
Not connected to the internet? No problem
Passage Planner does not need an internet connection for data entry or operation so is available to support passage planning at any time.
Routes can be shared with popular ECDIS
The ability to import routes from compatible ECDIS models minimises the risk of human error.
Changes made to the passage plan can be very simply saved and loaded into ECDIS for final validation checks and navigation.
Saving time with dynamic calculations
Automatic recalculations to ETAs, passing times and required leg speeds saves time compared with trial and error processes when planning the ship’s schedule.
Complying with ship’s SMS and port state requirements
Port State Control will accept the report as some of the evidence that the next passage is properly planned and compliant with regulations. Updates to the plan are automatically reported thereby saving time and avoiding errors.
IMO passage planning checklist included
The industry standard IMO checklist helps users to confirm that all planning tasks are considered and completed.
The visual marking of percentage complete allows all users to clearly identify when the planning process is reported to be finished.
