ECDIS is a navigation information system which with adequate backup arrangements can be accepted as complying with the up-to-date nautical chart and nautical publications required by SOLAS regulations V/19 and V/27, by displaying selected information from a system database with positional information from navigation sensors to assist the mariner in route planning and route monitoring and, if required, display additional navigation-related information.

The Simrad ECDIS900 Mk5B is a black-box style IMO Type-Approved system which is competitively priced and benefits from modern and easy to learn user interfaces. Type-specific training (TST) courses are available, always with the prerequisite of an IMO Model 1.27 training. These courses provide officers with the system knowledge required to use the Simrad ECDIS900 Mk5B for watchkeeping in accordance with STCW Regulations and the ISM Code.
