Voyager Planning Station updated

Global Navigation Solutions (GNS) has launched its new version of the Voyager Planning Station (VPS), which has been updated to improve interoperability with third party systems, including Applied Weather Technology (AWT) weather routing software and SAM Electronics’ ECDIS.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The link with Applied Weather Technology allows customers to exchange files between Voyager and the AWT Bon Voyage software to optimise routes for weather and tides. In the case of SAM Electronics’ ECDIS, compatibility has been improved to allow routes to be created in VPS and then loaded into the SAM ECDIS route file format without manual re-keying.

This latest version of Voyager also includes an extension of the software’s updating services to include Admiralty Digital Radio Signals titles that were released by the UKHO earlier this year, enhancements to the Voyager weekly update process to make it easier to manage paper and digital chart corrections, and access to Voyager Instant Permit which enables vessels to get on board access to global ENCs usually within 10 minutes of making a request.

Since 2012 GNS has brought together 10 distinct companies through a series of acquisitions, and with effect from January 2016 all the group companies will work solely under the GNS brand, bringing together all 275 employees in all GNS locations.

GNS now supplies approximately 9 million digital and paper charts and publications to more than 300 shipping companies around the world, the company said.{/mprestriction}
