OCTOPUS-Onboard, a ship motion monitoring system, now has an interface with WaMoS II, which provides real time measurement of directional ocean wave spectra.
WaMoS II displays wave height, period, direction and surface current speed. Amarcon says that, when delivered together with its advisory suite, this data can be made visible within OCTOPUS-Onboard in a separate tab.
Combining OCTOPUS-Onboard with WaMoS II integrates the real time wave data surrounding the vessel, and not just weather forecast data.
Amarcon says that a complete OCTOPUS-Onboard setup with WaMoS II can help a captain grasp the operational limitations of the vessel when sailing through heavy weather conditions. Critical and safe headings can be identified.
Amarcon is part of ABB and OceanWaveS is a Rutter subsidiary.
