ADMIRALTY Passage Planner
Passage planning made easier with dynamic clearance and leg-speed recalculations
ADMIRALTY Passage Planner helps bridge officers to create compliant passage plans, with clearance and leg-speed calculations that can be automatically updated during the planning process.
Key Features of ADMIRALTY Passage Planner include:
- Helps bridge officers calculate safe clearances based on the squat effect
- Calculates waypoint ETAs and required leg speeds
- Supports Port State Control and SMS requirements
- Reduces the risk of human error and needless data entry
Confidence in ship clearance calculations
ADMIRALTY Passage Planner allows bridge officers to automatically calculate safe clearances according to their ship's confined water situation.
Results are constantly checked against given parameters, highlighting potential dangers that may become obvious in the current passage plan. This means users do not have to manually re-check calculations when there are changes to the plan, and can be confident that they will be informed if the plan does not meet the safety criteria they have set.
Saving time with dynamic calculations
Bridge officers can manage a ship's scheduling within ADMIRALTY Passage Planner. Specified ETAs, passing times and required leg speeds are automatically updated and re-validated when dates, times and other key facts change - saving repetitive manual re-work.
Integrates with other ADMIRALTY applications
Integration with ADMIRALTY TotalTide enables users to automatically add tidal heights and times to the passage plan report and to squat calculations.
ADMIRALTY Passage Planner also allows the user to check the validity of AVCS permits against the proposed passage schedule.
Routes can be shared with popular ECDIS
ADMIRALTY Passage Planner allows bridge officers to import and use routes that have been generated on compatible ECDIS models. Any changes made to the passage plan can also be saved and loaded into these ECDIS for final validation checks and navigation.
Complying with ship’s SMS and port state requirements
Port State Control will accept reports as part of the evidence needed to prove that the next passage is properly planned and compliant with regulations. Updates to the plan are automatically reported thereby saving time and avoiding errors.
Easy to share, store and archive
Reports can be 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.
IMO passage planning checklist and intuitive wizards for key tasks
Bridge officers are guided through more complex processes, such as clearance calculations,so that consistent and accurate results are achieved quickly. An industry standard IMO checklist also helps users to confirm that all planning tasks are considered and completed, with a visual marking of percentage identifying when the planning process is reported and finished.
