Abstract
The S‐100 specification is a new geospatial standard for hydrographic data, that is presently under development by the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO). Once the S‐100 based products and services are fully developed by the IHO, current datasets will be scheduled for obsolescence, and the Hydrographic Offices (HOs) will no longer produce them. Companies offering e‐navigation solutions will need to develop new tools, modules, and applications to continue to support mariners’ hydrographic needs for safe navigation. Without these new tools, ships will be at increased risk when navigating worldwide ports and waterways. The objective of this project is the continued research and development of a modular, S‐129 compliant Under Keel Clearance ‐ Risk Management System (UKC‐RMS). This will allow for the Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), Electronic Charting System (ECS), Portable Pilot Units (PPUs), and other situational awareness applications to obtain and use S‐129 Exchange Sets developed for a planned route. The primary innovations within the architecture are the use of the Lua programming language as the technology in the S‐100 model transformation engine, the dynamic script loading analysis engine, and the multi‐product database derived from a S‐100 General Data Model schema.
