In the last two decades, rapid advances in technology have radically changed the workplace for almost all of us. Marine pilots are no exception. Two evolutionary changes have particularly affected pilots.
AD Navigation of Norway is one of very few manufacturers of state-of-the-art PPUs. This article aims to highlight what a PPU is.
The answer to this question is a clear NO. Many pilots do not realize this simple fact. I will by this throw some light on a matter I thought was common knowledge among most pilots:
At AD Navigation we say that the Pilot is given “ease of mind”. We all know that the services given from Pilots are crucial. They are simply too important to ignore as an easy task.
Being a sales guy in the maritime market is somewhat different from what I was used to in the software industry. Selling navigational tools are a challenge, since it is a tool for Pilots to bring on board a vessel. This tool used to be the eyes and ears of the Pilot. Today we can utilize on help from technology.
