Designed for ease of operation MantaDigital™ ECDIS is the latest product from Kelvin Hughes' Manta development programme. Intuitive operation and a clear display of relevant information provides the operator with a decision making tool which enhances safety and efficiency. Simplicity and ease of operation is at the heart of Kelvin Hughes' design philosophy.
From the outset, MantaDigital™ ECDIS has been designed for true multi-functionality, providing a platform for Radar, Chart Radar, ECDIS and Conning Display options. MantaDigital™ is driven by Kelvin Hughes' "common-core" processor system which is now in use throughout the Radar, ECDIS and VDR product ranges providing enhanced functionality, reliability and low cost of ownership.
The user interface has been designed to be intuitive to operate and provide all the tools that the navigator needs for efficient and safe navigation without the need to explore multiple levels on each menu.
MantaDigital™ ECDIS is available in a variety of mounting configurations to meet the needs of different vessel types and operational scenarios. It can be supplied in options ranging from a single 22" desktop retrofit system through to a fully integrated navigation system. Display options include 22" and 26" high-definition screens for pedestal, desktop and mounting into consoles.
Employing the latest state-of-the-art technology the MantaDigital™ ECDIS offers a vast array of advantages to the navigator, from immediate situation awareness, through to sophisticated alarm management. The MantaDigital™ ECDIS uses the same three button and tracker-ball interface concept that has been used successfully in Kelvin Hughes' products for over 10 years.
