Direct has successfully been installed across a
UK major oil shipping fleet as well as a large number
of other vessels. Bridge Direct by Lilley and Gillie
enables the mariner onboard a vessel to view and print
up to date corrections and tracings acting as a Digital
Updates can be installed either by an automatic email,
or via a CD.
Onboard charts can be corrected on a weekly basis
as vessels receive weekly updates received via a compressed
email reducing the file size to a minimum. The vessel
only receives tracings specific to the vessels chart
index further reducing the email file size.
Another alternative is taking advantage of the once
fortnightly CD update that is sent to the vessel when
possible, again the CD only contains tracing corrections
specific to the vessel.
All that is required to run Bridge Direct is a standard
Windows PC and a colour pinter, eliminating any hardware
installation or maintenance costs.
