ECPINS Sub gets latest ECDIS approval

4th October 2016 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The ECPINS Submarine solution from OSI Maritime Systems has received the DNV GL's Marine Equipment Directive (MED) Type Approval certification for the newest Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) standards, the company announced on 3 October.

The certification has been given against new International Hydrographic Organization and International Electrotechnical Commission standards. These standards require all vessels operating ECDIS to be updated with new ECDIS software by September 2017. Accordingly, all OSI customers can now upgrade to ECPINS 6.2 in order to comply with these standards.

ECPINS Submarine is a military vessel ECDIS designed to improve situational awareness and navigational safety on submarines. It enables submarine navigators to safely navigate in challenging dived and surface conditions.

Navies using the the ECPINS Warship or ECPINS Submarine systems include Portugal, the Netherlands, Denmark, New Zealand, Australia, the UK and Canada.
