Project Introduction


With the guidance of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), since 2009 commercial maritime ships have undergone a mandated shift to the Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) navigation system. The IMO already requires all new commercial ships to be equipped with ECDIS, and beginning in 2012 it began enforcing this requirement on existing ships, as well. By 2017, all commercial maritime vessels will be required, by international mandate, to be equipped with ECDIS.

In addition to a digitized collection of charts, ECDIS combines all of a ship’s real-time sensors (such as the speed log, radar, wind station, AIS, and gyro compass) into a computer network that collects all the available information, analyzes it for anomalies and threats, and then displays this information in various views superimposed over detailed charts. For an ECDIS station to reliably provide bridge crews with real-time information about their current location, surroundings, and underwater hazards, a high performance marine-certified panel computer that incorporates redundant digital I/O, IA serial (including NMEA), and Ethernet interfaces is required.

System Requirements


• DNV-certified computer/display combo compliant with the ECDIS, IEC 61174, and IEC 60945 standards,
• High performance computing that easily delivers graphic-intensive navigation applications
• Native NMEA connectors for durable and efficient marine deployments
• Dependable computer quality with outstanding after-sale service


Moxa Solution

                   ECDIS Computer for Marine Navigation System


Moxa provides a range of high performance maritime computers, displays, and panel PCs that can efficiently and rapidly process a variety of data sources, such as anemometer stations, speed logs, weather stations, and GPS. Our fanless devices are fully enclosed and capable of weathering the full range of inclement temperatures, from the very cold to the very hot, thus eliminating common points of failure and significantly cutting environmental wear and tear. At the same time, Moxa’s in-house command of the entire design and manufacturing process guarantees consistent quality and a high MTBF. Our main processing units come with comprehensive interfacing for easily configured, reliable, real-time communications with ECDIS sensor systems, providing on-board interfaces for digital I/O, IA serial, NMEA, and Ethernet allowing system engineers and integrators to focus on quickly building and deploying the alarms and failsafes required by ECDIS systems, rather than diddling around with device extensions and third party adapters
