IMS Editor


The IMS Editor is Windows-based software for primary use by measurers to edit, store and distribute IMS measurement data. It is compatible with the ORC Manager software used by rating officers for production of ORC International and ORC Club certificates, as well as its designer's version that includes complete calculations using the ORC VPP (Velocity Prediction Program).

The IMS Editor covers all measurements using the International Measurement System (IMS) including complete sail and measurement inventories and declared rig controls and other data. A tooltip within the program contains information about each field. It can be used for complete or partial measurement with an easy option to "merge" measured data to the existing boat data. Measurers can print all or partial amounts of data as a formal measurement record, and then submit the data in a DXT file by e-mail to the rating officers and preserve the signed papers for the record.

For simulation and testing purposes, the software can also be used by owners and project managers to submit data to designers who have the ORC VPP software.

The latest 2019 version include following updates:

  • Measurement data are rounded always upwards when the entered value has more decimal places than needed (for example, a value of 4.552 for HLP will be rounded to 4.56, as sails are measured in centimeters).

  • Fixes in boat drawing.

  • Added new fields for 2019 to handle asymmetric on CL only and boom inclining.

  • Added new propeller codes.

  • Minor changes and fixes.
