Utilisation of weather data from MeteoGroup in the FleetView Online (FVO) system will allow users to access current and 5-day forecasted weather data over their entire chart folio, displaying sea conditions such as wind, waves and swell, current and other weather elements.
Display of these weather forecasts has already been implemented on the Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS, either through the company’s Navi-Planner voyage planning software or via an interface between the Navi-Sailor ECDIS and MeteoGroup's SPOS program.
Integration of the systems allows for similar data presentation and management across all systems used on board or ashore.
FleetView Online is a web-based SSAS-tracking service for processing and distribution of SSAS Alerts, and displays a vessel's position anywhere in the world. It operates using Transas ShipGuard Inmarsat D+/ISAT M2M/IsatData Pro terminals as well as with a range of Inmarsat-C and Inmarsat mini-C terminals installed on board.
Vessel tracking through Fleet Broadband and a range of terrestrial and space-based AIS services is also available.
