SIRM believes that electronic navigational steps must be completed with full digitization of publications. The ADP solution – Admiralty Digital Publications is the ideal tool to ease the transition from paper to digital systems, with a simple integration in Chart Management systems.
The digital format of publications provides a number of benefits compared with analogous publications on paper, which are:
- Flexibility and simplicity of use
- Higher efficiency in terms of time and cost
- Constant and immediate update
- Research of documents and search of information
- Increased data accuracy
Digital publications are accepted by the majority of States and are becoming an indispensable tool and a value to the crew involved in the routes planning.
The range of digital publications proposed by SIRM includes:
- ADMIRALTY Digital List of Lights (ADLL)
- ADMIRALTY Digital Radio Signals (ADRS)
- ADRS 1, 3, 4, 5 –Maritime Radio and Meteorological Observation Stations, Maritime Safety Information Services and GMDSS Description
- ADRS 2 – positional and timekeeping references to support worldwide position and time calculation
- ADRS 6 – essential info about radio maritime communication (for 3,600 points in the world)
- ADMIRALTY TotalTide (ATT) – the world’s most comprehensive, real-time tidal prediction program, bringing global tidal height and stream data together
