We combine the world's leading portable pilot technology with the leading pilot ECS.
Qastor, by QPS (Quality Positioning Services BV), is a powerful electronic charting system that
gives pilots easy-to-use and easy-to-understand information. QPS has been developing
portable electronic charting and navigation systems for the marine pilot since 2000.
Qastor is designed in compliance with:
Qastor uses fully specified ECS engines for digital chart presentation. Various formats can be read
and displayed, such as IHO S-57 Version 3, ARCS and C-Map CM93 version 3.
Qastor also supports the IHO S-63 security mechanism as used by Primar and IC-ENC.
Like all good piloting software, Qastor incorporates the Scamin decluttering algorithm. This extremely
useful addition allows charts to be zoomed in and out without overlayed objects crowding the screen.
Most digital charts worldwide are designed to enable Scamin decluttering.
Qastor is developed with Windows ® GUI (Graphic user interface) guidelines, making it user-friendly
and easy to use.
Although Qastor is built on a compliant engine, the software itself is deliberately not type-approved.
Type approval is not relevant for PPUs. In fact there are great disadvantages with type approval
of software... any updates will take a lot longer and be very expensive.
Qastor is regularly updated with each update always adding new features.
Please contact us for information on anything you want to know about Qastor software.
Navicom Dynamics is extremely experienced with Qastor and has an active role in its update process.
The great relationship we have with QPS ensures the feedback we receive from pilots always reaches
the ears of the software designers. Every new update to Qastor makes Navicom Dynamics' products
even more relevant and useful to the pilot.
