Diver6 Releases New ENC Chart Overlay Features

Diver6 Releases New ENC Chart Overlay Features

Diver6, a Diver and Dive Operations mobile support system, has released a new software component for the Diver6 user community. The new ENC chart overlay features allow Dive Masters to see where their divers are located on a chart during an active dive.

One of the leading issues with providing ENC charts is that most services are online content providers. Mapping and chart options require users to have an internet connection to see and use the charts. The mobile and remote features of Diver6 make it very difficult to maintain an internet connection on a dive. Small vessels do not have the expensive communication options needed for online content provisions.

Diver6 v2.0 includes the new ChartServer add-on. The ChartServer is a locally run application that serves ENC S57 charts to Diver6. International S63 charts are also supported in the new application. With the addition of ChartServer, Diver6 users can load nautical charts for any location in the world to support their dives.

All new Diver6 systems are shipped with the latest features and applications. Current system owners can contact us about upgrade options. U.S. customers are provided with a system that is fully loaded with NOAA ENC charts. International customers are provided with the application ready to accept charts. Fees may apply for international S63 charts.

The addition of charts gives a Dive Master another situational awareness tool to improve the quality and safety of the active dive.

Azimuth Inc. teamed with Canadian based Siitech to develop this application for Diver6. Siitech is a leading innovator of AIS and nautical chart applications.

Diver6 and Shearwater Systems Integrate

Shearwater Research Inc, the leading manufacturer of dive computers and electronic control systems for rebreathers has expanded their support for DiveCAN applications. They are pleased to announce the integration of the Diver6 diver monitoring and communication system with the Petrel and NERD display systems.

The integration between Shearwater and Diver6 provides greatly enhanced communication between diver and divemaster. Recall alerts can now be sent to the diver and displayed on the Shearwater devices providing directional information to return to the surface vessel. The divemaster can also issue an assist message which will send a diver directional information to another diver in need. Divers can issue a Diver Distress / 911 alert to notify the dive master that they are in trouble. With this integration, divemasters can now effectively react to multiple situations happening underwater.

The integration debuted at the 2014 DEMA show. Many of the attendees were very interested in the integration and were excited to see how the dive master could now direct his divers to locations and assist divers by providing them with valuable directional data.

It is another feature that gives the dive another layer of safety and security.
