From October 23rd to 28th, Saab Maritime Traffic Management will be exhibiting at the American Pilots’ Association 2016 Biennial Convention in Maui, Hawaii.

Saab Maritime Traffic Management will be demonstrating Saab’s KleinPilot dispatch and billing management system and AD Navigation’s ADX PPU (Portable Pilot Unit).

KleinPilot gives Pilots mobile access to the timely, accurate information they need to do their jobs. It helps Pilotages improve the efficiency of their pilot dispatching function and manage pilot rotation, activities, schedules and status. Visit our KleinPilot page for more information: KleinPilot.

The ADX PPU provides the highest level of accuracy and reliability for PPU applications. Operated independently, the ADX performs even better than most ship-installed gyros, ROT sensors, and speed logs. Visit the ADX PPU page for more information: ADX PPU.
