NavStation updated to version 4.0

NAVTOR has updated its digital chart table with the launch of NavStation 4.0, adding a new passage planning module to reduce the amount of administration work required in managing vessel routing, both on board ship and at the fleet level.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The system includes automatic logging of passage plan information, digital checks to reduce human error, and the ability to share routes across fleets so any vessel or management office with the NavStation software can access them.

NavStation launched in 2014, with an initial passage planning module having been introduced last year before being refined again in this latest update.

“NavStation is already the best tool for maritime route planning and optimisation, but after close consultation with our users we thought we could push the passage planning functionality to the next level,” said NAVTOR CEO Tor Svanes.

“Now, not only can navigators create safe, compliant documentation automatically, but they can also exchange planned routes with others, multiplying the efficiencies across entire fleets. The man hours this will save, and the insight this unlocks, has the potential to deliver real competitive advantages for our customers.”

“In terms of additional safety, the improved module also provides complete route overviews of warnings and alarms, allowing navigators to prepare for, and if necessary adjust, routes through dangerous areas and challenging conditions. It is our mission to simplify tasks, enhance safety and improve efficiency for both navigators and ship operators. NavStation 4.0 really does embody that drive.”

NavStation 4.0 is available on standard computers, touchscreen devices and specially made ‘giga-pads’, a table-sized touchscreen that allows users to grab, swipe and manoeuvre overlaid layers of information.{/mprestriction}
