NovacoBridge is a state-of-the-art Chartroom Management solution. Beyond electronic delivery of Notices to Mariners, NovacoBridge gives officers access to everything a chart agent should know about charts and publications. Officers can then make independent decisions or validate the information they receive on new editions, corrections and much more for their charts and publications.

NovacoBridge offers an intuitive user interface, comprehensive reporting and full automation of all routine processes. It reduces the amount of time required for corrections but more importantly it simplifies the process itself.

NovacoBridge supports a number of paper and digital charts and publications from different nations.

Notices to Mariners

NovacoBridge delivers Notices to Mariners electronically. Notices to Mariners are published weekly by Hydrographic Offices and contain corrections applicable to their national charts and publications. Solas V require that all ships have all the charts and publications they use fully up to date. This is an essential requirement for compliance and supports safe navigation.

Notices to Mariners form the heart of any correction process and the British Admiralty Notices to Mariners are the most widely used.

Paper Charts & Publications

NovacoBridge provides comprehensive support for paper charts and publications. NovacoBridge draws from the relevant Notices to Mariners to provide custom correction lists, corrections text, tracings and blocks for permanent as well as temporary and preliminary corrections.

NovacoBridge simplifies the correction process for NP publications down to a single button click. No cut & paste and no page replacement required. Novaco's innovative approach simplifies the correction process but more importantly it removes the risk of operator error.

Digital Charts & Publications

NovacoBridge provides comprehensive support for ENC updates and provides updates that can be used on any ECDIS system. With NovacoBridge you no longer need to have base and update CDs. The service lets you receive weekly updates and new editions for ENCs you already use or full editions for ENCs you have purchased for the first time.

NovacoBridge distributes updates for applicable Admiralty Digital Publications. Updates are distributed by email or satellite broadcast and require no direct internet access.

NavArea Warnings

NovacoBridge delivers updates to Navigational Warnings for all 21 areas. Information collated and distributed by Novaco is sourced from the World Wide Navigational Warnings Service Sub Committee (WWNWS) members and it is intended to help users to maintain and verify warnings received over the Inmarsat SafetyNET or international NAVTEX services which are the accepted official data streams of Maritime Safety Information.
