Navicom Dynamics portable pilots units and customised berthing aid systems have been tried and tested by marine pilots and mooring masters around the globe for over a decade. Here's what some of them have to say...

"Being able to use the ShuttlePilot equipment to predict where the FSO was going to be at the end of her swing, and hence line the tanker up ready for her, probably saved two or three hours of chasing her tail during the swing"

"This is one more way to ensure greater security, so that we can make a manoeuvre in adverse conditions and in confined spaces such as we have in the Port of Santos." -

"The ChannelPilot has become a valuable instrument to support the bridge team; always ready to provide accurate information on positioning, heading, drift, predictors, ROT, distances to berths and lateral approach speeds.
ChannelPilot is invaluable as a decision support tool when precision is required, or when things may not be going according to plan.
A very satisfied customer!"
- Bernardo Obando, Harbour Pilot
