CEACT™ Inland ECDIS For Tow Boats

Professional Inland ECDIS Software
CEACT Classic and CEACT Light use USACE and NOAA electronic navigational charts to the latest S-57 and IENC 2.1 standards, that have been optimized by ChartWorld for use in CEACT by converting them to SevenCs system ENC (SENC) format – directENC.

DirectENC (or dENC) charts offer significant advantages over standard S-57 charts, including: simplified chart management, faster system data loading, and embedded chart functions that allow key features of CEACT to function correctly and efficiently. These SENC enabled features include:

Channel Closest Point of Approach,
Natural Route Planning and ETA Functionality,
Mile Marker / Kilometer Marker On-line Display, and
Go to River Mile Position.
Tug and Barges Underway – USA CEACT™ Classic is designed to enhance navigational awareness and steering efficiency in areas of restricted manoeuvrability such as inland waterways and channels. CEACT™ Classic’s “Real Time Vessel Course Trajectory” improves Pilot steering efficiency, increases Ton Miles, enhances navigational awareness and improves collision avoidance.
