ADMIRALTY Digital Publications (ADP) are a fully approved digital version of the UKHO’s paper Nautical Publications used by mariners around the world. ADP meets SOLAS carriage requirements and, depending on a vessels flag state, can replace the requirement for carriage of traditional paper publications. Poseidon Navigation Services Ltd is an approved supplier of ADP and offers the full range of titles which are listed below. The software is supplied on a single CD which requires an annual license subscription, and is designed to be used on a Windows PC.
This is a digital version of the ADMIRALTY lights list, which comes complete with an easy to use graphical interface. The main advantage to having the digital version is the automatic application of updates, which substantially reduces the time and effort needed by the mariner to keep the list corrected up to date. Weekly updates can be received by CD, via our ‘Challenger’ software, or alternatively by downloading from the UKHO website directly. It is now accepted as a replacement for the paper version by various Flag States.

It contains tidal information for over 7,000 ports and more than 3,000 tidal stream stations worldwide.
