Common Geospatial Navigation Toolkit (COGENT)
COGENT's primary responsibility is a toolkit to support safe navigation by providing a soft real-time graphical display of ownship position and surrounding area. COGENT also provides an integrated, layered tool set to support various mission areas in harmony with the primary navigation operations. COGENT has much of the same functionality as its predecessor Integrated Charting Engine (ICE) and adds many enhanced capabilities, including support of third party applications through external software interfaces.COGENT displays National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Digital Nautical Charts (DNC®), utilizes GEOSYM 4 symbology and allows the user the functionality inherent in DNCs to meet Electronic Chart Display and Information System standards defined by the International Maritime Organization and / or the International Hydrographic Organization.
COGENT operates under Windows XP SP3, Window 7/8.x and requires minimum of Pentium 4 CPU (Core2 i3/i5/i7 or better recommended) and having at least 1GB of main memory for Windows XP, 2GB or more for Windows 7/8.x. For technical help please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
