Digital navigation tool enhanced

Navtor, a supplier of navigational products and services, has announced the launch of NavStation 4.0, which updates its digital chart table with a new passage planning module to reduce onboard administration duties. Key features include the automatic logging of passage plan information, digital checks to reduce human error, and the ability to share routes across fleets.

NavStation, launched in 2014, allows navigators to gather, view and manage voyage information – such as ENC, weather data, tidal information and digital publications – in one place. An initial passage planning module was introduced last year, freeing navigators from having to manually input planning information, such as waypoint data.

With the update, according to Navtor CEO Tor Svanes, this feature has been refined to deliver even greater efficiency. “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,” he stated.

According to Svanes, the new module also increases safety by providing complete route overviews of warnings and alarms, allowing navigators to prepare for, and if necessary adjust, routes through dangerous areas and challenging conditions.

NavStation 4.0 is available on standard computers, touch-screen devices and specially made “giga-pads” that allow users to grab, swipe and maneuver all overlaid layers of information, according to the company. Other features include an integrated NavTracker vessel management function and optimized routes to reduce fuel use and emissions.
Navtor, established in 2011 is headquartered in Egersund, Norway, and has a global network of distributors. For more information, visit www.navtor.com.
