This is an excellent video training that would be greatly useful to anyone whose work involves operating the navigational radars, i.e. marine navigators, and those dealing with the maintenance and repair of these appliances – all of them must have clear understanding of the construction and working principles of the radars as well as of the applicable regulations and standards to be complied with.
Navigational radars use two bands on the microwave spectrum – the X-band and the S-band. Radars using the short wave length X-band exhibit good angular resolution but are susceptible to the effects of rain and snow resulting in greater attenuation. However, attenuation is minimum with radars working on the longer wave S-band making them less susceptible to interference from rain and snow. The IMO has revised its performance standard for navigational radars.
This new standard applies to all such radars fitted after 01 July 2008. What is known as the radar image is displayed in the center of the screen. Look at the upper left-hand side of the screen; here, information such as the range and scale settings, motion display mode and azimuth display mode are shown. On the low left-hand side of the screen the gain, STC, FTC and traffic mode settings are displayed…
And here is the last, closing part of the training series developed and released by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office. Each part of the training sets deals with some particular system. And this compilation consists of ten videos and one document with installation instructions, dealing with the Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS 4000.

We continue to acquaint our visitors with the series of excellent video training lessons released by the UKHO, i.e. United Kingdom Hydrographic Office in order to let the navigator get themselves familiar with different types of ECDIS and understand all technical features of each particular system.
As it was the case with all previously shown parts of the set, this training package, devoted to the Tokyo Keiki EX 8x00 systems, consists of eight videos supplemented with the booklet with the installation guide, intended to provide users with the equipment-specific information they will need to manage their AVCS ENC holdings.
The other parts of the training set are all available for download, as well – see the sets dealing with such widely used ECDIS systems as the Maris ECDIS 900, SAM ECDISPilot, Sperry VisionMaster FT, OSI ECPINS, Furuno FMD 3X00, JRN-JAN-701B-901B-2000, Kelvin Hughes Manta Digital, Furuno FEA2X07, SAM ECDIS ChartPilot 1100, Raytheon Anschutz, PC Maritime NavMaster, eGlobe G2, Kongsberg K-Bridge, TELKO TECDIS. There are plenty of systems to choose from and you are all invited to download them and go through the content to make sure you are prepared to handle any system.
Here is another part of the popular training series by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office, or UKHO for short, and this one is devoted to the TELKO ECDIS systems and consists of ten training videos supplemented with the booklet dealing with using the Admiralty Vector Chart Service, or VCS, with this type of ECDIS.
As you can see, the arrangement of the material does not differ from one system to another and this approach makes is quite easy to cover different types of ECDIS. Taking into account the importance of the proper understanding and correct handling of the ECDIS for the safety of navigation, you are invited to download all parts of the video training and get yourself duly familiarized with the content of every single one.
Note that we have plenty of training sets covering various ECDIS systems including but not limited to OSI ECPINS, SAM ECDISPilot and SAM ECDIS ChartPilot 1100, Maris ECDIS 900, JRN-JAN-701B-901B-2000, Furuno FEA2X07, Kongsberg K-Bridge, Kelvin Hughes Manta Digital, Furuno FMD 3X00, Sperry VisionMaster FT, Raytheon Anschutz, eGlobe G2 and PC Maritime NavMaster. As you can see, there are plenty of systems covered so feel free to go ahead and get a good training.
We continue the series of training sets presented by the UKHO, standing for the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office. This particular part of the series is dealing with the Sperry VisionMaster FT. In addition to eight training and instructional video lessons, there is a booklet included in the set containing necessary instructions on how to use the Admiralty VCS, i.e. vector chart service, with the Northrop Grumman Marine ECDIS.

It will allow you not only get familiarized with the modern electronic navigation systems but will also let you get better understanding of the technical differences between models. Note that the similar structure of the training sets makes them even more comfortable and user-friendly. Just do not forget to check the booklets in addition to videos for better results.
Another guide set forming a part of the ECDIS Video Guides series intended to provide operators of the ECDIS systems with the information and instructions they need to perform their duties in the most effective way. This one is dealing with the Raytheon Anschutz system and its content bases on the E03.12 version of the software. A separate document included in the set is devoted to migrating to the IHO certificate for S-63 1.1 in the subject system.
Note that the other parts of the series are all available and cover the Kelvin Hughes MantaDigital, JRC JAN-701B-901B-2000, Furuno FEA 2X07, Furuno FMD 3X00, eGlobe G2, PC Maritime NavMaster, Kongsberg K-Bridge, OSI ECPINS and Maris ECDIS 900 systems widely used on board seagoing vessels. Traditionally, all video lessons contained in the pack feature remarkably clear and understandable explanations.
The set may be used for onboard training as well as for the general training of the persons willing to get themselves familiarized with the general functions and features of the popular shipboard ECDIS systems. A recommended one to be possessed on board any ship, detailing the whole installation process, data management, updates and all other important aspects.
The content of the present guide bases on the version 188.8.131.52 of the PC Maritime NavMaster electronic chart display information system and continues the series of the guide training modules. The previous releases addressed the ECDIS developed by the world known manufacturers, including JRC JAN-701B-901B-2000, Kongsberg K-Bridge, eGlobe G2, Furuno FMD 3X00 and FEA 2X07, Kelvin Hughes MantaDigital, Maris ECDIS 900 and OSI ECPINS.
