OSI offers a variety of optional software capability modules and features that extend ECPINS’s main capabilities in navigation and situational awareness. Customers have the option of purchasing any selection of these modules for fleet-wide or platform-specific use.
Facilitates the efficient monitoring, identification, and screening of contacts. Includes functions to import, export, and transfer contact data to other systems. Additionally, providing integration with NATO Form Gold.
This module provides a screen layout that presents the Officer of the Watch an overview of navigation and operational considerations. This enables the OOW to monitor the voyage, flag events, set alerts, log notes and hand over the watch in an efficient manner.
Allows for the display of Mine-Like Objects (MLO) from an integrated database, sonar or combat management system. MLO data is displayed on the chart, and includes assigned depth values to ensure the MLO’s are correctly displayed in the 3D view.
Extends ECPINS’s powerful proprietary chart display engine to present a three-dimensional view derived from any installed vector charts. The operator can adjust the scale, angle, and detail of this view, over which can be laid contacts, routes, areas, chart objects, and a 3D rendition of the own ship.
The Sub Ops module enhances dived navigation operations through the inclusion of features such as dived safety depth, dived depth display, enhanced INS position display and a screen layout devoted to depth-keeping and conning.
Useful where a vessel’s draft alters according to squat, this module enables the operator to have ECPINS alter the safety depth along specific route legs according to the vessel’s squat characteristics at the current or planned speed.
Facilitates precise navigation by providing a specialized screen layout and a relative velocity calculator. The conning layout, ideal for use at the helm position, facilitates route tracking, docking, and refuelling at sea. The relative velocity calculator enables the OOW to quickly determine the optimal route to pass a target or take station on it at a specific range & bearing.
Determines own ship position in circumstances where a position fix derived from a Global Navigation Satellite System is not available (e.g. underwater), unreliable (e.g. spoofing, signal obstruction or insufficient satellites), or denied environments (e.g. jamming).
Auto Dead Reckoning and Pool of Errors display and management are central features to this capability module. Whilst traditionally this capability has been uniquely delivered to navies operating submarines, the operational dynamics naval warfare has seen an increased demand for these features across surface fleets.
