a new system to help merchant sea vessels to make order and receive the electronic nautical charts (ENC) licence together with the update data which is mandatory for each voyage.
This system allows fully automated process that will reduce the delivery time to within a few seconds for both licence and data. Conventional method takes at least few minutes; or sometime a day due to approval process is needed to issue the licence. Further more, the data delivery is in a separate process and for vessels without internet it is complicated. The crew onboard the vessel need to retrieve the data manually by email/internet or totally depends on the DVDs which are sent during the last berthing (which may be weeks old than the current data).
