EC2007 ECDIS Kernel

The EC2007 ECDIS Kernel is a software development kit (SDK) that helps OEMs to develop a wide range of marine chart-display applications, such as: ECDIS, WECDIS, VTS, Inland ECDIS, ECS, tactical consoles, etc.

Fully featured, stable and compliant, EC2007 significantly reduces development risks, costs and time-to-market for maritime chart-display and navigation applications, such as ECDIS.

Supported Applications

EC2007 is made not just for type-approved ECDIS and Inland ECDIS applications, but also for many other military, civil and offshore applications, such as:

  • Naval Combat Systems
  • Vessel Traffic Service (VTS)
  • Harbour and Coastal Surveillance
  • Training and Simulation Systems
  • Search and Rescue (SAR)

Supported Functionality

  • Chart Handling (loading, decrypting, updating)
  • Chart Display (with automatic chart selection depending on position and scale)
  • Chart Object Handling (creation, manipulation, querying)
  • Sensor Handling for NMEA, AIS, ARPA (only EC2007 ECDIS Kernel)
  • Routing (planning, calculation, monitoring, recording)
  • Guard-zone definition and prediction
  • Navigational calculations for clearing lines, electronic bearing lines (EBL), etc.
