EC2007 ECDIS Kernel

The EC2007 ECDIS Kernel is a software development kit (SDK) that assists 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.
