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 2022 version include following updates:

  • Offset editor support for offset 2.0 appendages.
  • New inventory with normalization and classification of the items as "Ballast", "Liquid Tanks" and "Other". Existing data are migrated automatically. Additionally, water ballast tanks are migrated in ballast section, marked as "movable" kind.
  • New WPL (whisker pole length) and "hydro generator" fields.
  • New "measured freeboards" field in Club-only options, to confirm that freeboard data have been actually measured (by default they are considered as non-measured). Values of FA and FF appear in Club certificates only when this field is checked.
  • New "print" feature shows the html data printout in the internal browser. From there it may be saved or sent by email as attachment, along with the data file
  • Various improvements and fixes.
