They contain the same information as their paper equivalents, and are widely accepted as meeting SOLAS carriage requirements. Volume 6 ADRS 6 — essential maritime radio communications information for 3, service locations worldwide, including pilot services, Vessel Traffic Services and port operations. It allows crews to make tidal height predictions for more than 7, ports and 3, tidal stream stations worldwide. Advantages of digital applications They provide greater efficiency and flexibility — giving bridge crews faster, more accurate updates and easier access to the information they need.

The worldwide authority on light and fog signals: Admiralty Digital List of Lights The worldwide authority on maritime radio signals: Admiralty Digital Radio Signals Aiding in the calculation of time and positions: the time-keeping and positional references in Digital Radio Signals — Volume 2 Digital Radio Signals — Volume 6 contains essential radio information for maritime communication covering 3, locations around the world.

Global tidal predictions are provided by Admiralty TotalTide. This real time service predicts both height and stream data.

Offering Admiralty Digital Publications allow bridge crews to access important information in an efficient and timely manner. These improved efficiencies enable crews to devote more time to decision making and less to clerical tasks. Most ships carrying out business have flag state approval: ADPs meet with carriage requirements. What is ADP? Weekly updates are available by e-mail, CD or Internet download. This is the most comprehensive guide to maritime lights available today.

This reference allows crews to ensure that they are following the correct route and the correct time. Volume 6: Important maritime radio information for 3, locations around the world. Includes information for port operations, pilot services and vessel traffic services. Admiralty TotalTide ATT : Contains tidal height and stream predictions for over 7, ports and 3, tidal stream locations around the world, making it one of the most exhaustive and comprehensive sources of tidal information available.

Advantages of Digital Applications The easy-to-use, intuitive interface of the ADPs combined with powerful search functionality allows crews to access information in a pleasant, efficient manner. Regular updates allow crews to receive changing information on an expedited basis as well. Crews who have access to all available information are afforded the opportunity to make thoroughly considered decisions. Mariners may purchase licenses for only ADPs that they require, so that they may be individually installed, operated and updated.

Licenses allow crews may make one working copy per ship so that each publications may be shared by separate computers including one with an independent power supply to comply with SOLAS carriage provisions.

Overlays to Support Voyage Planning A growing number of back-of-bridge software providers provide support for the Admiralty e-Planning Station, which enables users to view ADPs in a window overlaid on official charts. Helping Prepare For Digital Navigation Many maritime shippers are making the move from paper-based to digital. ADPs are the perfect starting point for crews making the transition from traditional paper charts and publications to more modern electronic alternatives.

Compliance Almost all ships operating today have flag state approval to use ADP. Given that ADP provides the same information, with improved access and reference tools, they are seen as meeting the standards as paper publications by almost all flag states.

Inspection teams appreciate the ease of which they may check the library and most recent updates in a simple, streamlined process. The ADP library has been assembled and all information thorough checked for accuracy by a team of leading experts in the hydrographic field.

Traditional publications take a great deal of time to update manually. Introducing errors with manual updates is common as well. Regular electronic updates for ADP and other digital products eliminates many of these concerns. Global Coverage — More Routes and Ports ADP products are divided into regions that allow mariners to purchase only the information they require.

New licenses may be added as needed, providing flexibility and cost savings. It provides mariners with detailed information on fog signals, lighthouses, floating light marks and lightships across the globe.

The ADLL provides in-depth information for more than 70, light structures and contains an exact replication of the information contained in the original paper-based edition with the added functionality of regular, weekly updates.

Familiarity and Reassurance Because the ADLL is an exact replication of the paper publication, users feel confident with information presented to them. The same familiar symbols and legends are used on charts. The layout and format of the ADLL is identical to physical editions. Ships which operate under SOLAS convention provisions are safer for crews and face limited scrutiny from inspection authorities.

When compared to manually updating paper Notices to Mariners by hand, electronic updates offer a convenient and streamlined solution. Manual updates are prone to human error. This risk is removed when using electronic updates. Additionally, increased time-savings allows crews to spend more time with other important considerations.

Numerous search options are available: by location, by text string and by geographic window. Crews may print and export data to allow for providing pre-passage planning, shore based and other operational needs.
