(E-Navigation) Seall Passage Planner Strengthened with AIS Feature


Jargoon has announced that a new interface to 
AIS Hub has been added to their Seall Passage Planner(SPP).  

The versatile passage planning software which was launched in November 2013, provides AIS(Automatic Identification System) by using the SPP Virtual AIS Radar. This feature allows the mariner to quickly access the vessel traffic in any areas within the coverage of the Hub’s traffic tracking service, and display the collated data to the mariner during passage planning. A simple mouse click or touch gesture will provide an immediate virtual sweep of traffic reporting within a configurable range of the selected point.  Passage plans can then easily be modified to avoid areas of traffic congestion.



AIS information is used to improve vessel traffic awareness

In addition to the Virtual AIS radar there is also a quick search facility that will scan all receivers in the network allowing a user to search for a given vessel by name or IMO number.

"Having an accurate passage plan while being able to monitor other vessels at the same time will be the perfect combination for securing safety at sea and managing your plan efficiently. Seall Passage Planner already encompasses other important components to optimise and increase efficiency in passage planning, but with the latest feature, Seall Passage Planner will become even more powerful. We strongly believe that our recent update to Seall Passage Planner is worth looking into.” said Des Neill, Director at Jargoon.

Vessels with gross tonnage(GT) of 300 tonnes or more, and all passenger ships regardless of their size must comply with the AIS regulations of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea(SOLAS) set by the International Maritime Organisation(IMO).

(Seall Blog) What is AIO?

(UKHO/AIO)



Things to know about Admiralty Information Overlay(AIO) 



The term ‘AIO’ is not yet familiar to many people. AIO is the abbreviation of Admiralty Information Overlay, and was developed and launched by UKHO (the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office). Although it has become a vital feature, many mariners are still unsure about it. The AIO is a digital dataset of T&Ps(Temporary & Preliminary) corrections which can be displayed on chart management and display systems such as ECDIS and passage planning software.


The Admiralty Information Overlay is a very important component as it provides crucial navigational information for a safe voyage; it contains all Admiralty Temporary & Preliminary Notices to Mariners (T&P NMs) and provides additional preliminary information that is specific to AVCS and ENCs. Now that the ECDIS Mandation is coming into force increasingly more and more vessels are relying on ECDIS for primary and back-up navigation since the majority of ECDIS cannot display AIO, vessels must continue to use Notice to Mariners to keep a record of T&P NMs.  

AIO on Seall Passage Planner

Seall Passage Planner contains built-in ‘AIO integration’. This feature allows users to display AIO layers on top of AVCS (Admiralty Vector Chart Service) which automates route validation against AIO detected intersections and AIO detecting proximity. When a notice is crossed by a route leg or a route passes within a configurable proximity limit of a notice, a danger highlight annotation and proximity warning will be presented accordingly in the plan. Users can also view or print paper base reports which list intersections and proximity alerts with the notice and affected AVCS cells.  


To be able to use the overlay, you are required to have a permit to it just like ENCs. The permit for the Overlay is free of charge and can be available from admiralty chart agents. Once it's installed, it will be loaded with the Chart Permit files. Updates to the Overlay are issued weekly on CD/DVD, along with the weekly AVCS Update CD/DVD, and on-line updating is also available over the internet through Seall Passage Planner.
