Naval automation and navigation systems supplier Seastema said its SEAS-PILOT HCS autopilot system has been certified with the MED/4.16 Type Approval Certificate of Conformity by DNV GL.

With this result, Seastema, a Fincantieri company, becomes the only Italian manufacturer, and one of the first worldwide, of a certified autopilot system in conformity with the new European regulation MED (Marine Equipment Directive) 2019/1397, the highest international standard in the marine sector.

The SEAS-PILOT HCS system will be used on the new naval units that Fincantieri will deliver to the Italian Navy within the Naval Act. The first installation will be operating on the Logistics Support Ship (LSS), followed by the naval units that Fincantieri is building for the Qatar Navy and the new yachts built by Benetti.

As a continuation of these activities, Seastema is developing an automatic course control system (SEAS-PILOT TCS), that will be MED certified and which will be installed on the Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) unit of the Italian Navy.

SEAS-PILOT HCS and SEAS-PILOT TCS, together with the proprietary dynamic positioning (DP) already installed on the two Italian Coast Guard Dattilo and Diciotti units, form the SEASPILOT NAVY solution, an advanced autopilot able to handle tactical maneuvering functions. SEASPILOT NAVY is in the process of being released also on the Pattugliatori Polivalenti d'Altura (PPA) units.

Seastema says it is continuing to invest in research and development activities using control logic and graphic technologies to make its products increasingly competitive.
