Navtor launches new navigation software

NavStation NavStation Navtor

Navtor today announced the launch of NavStation, a ‘Digital Chart Table’ that gathers information from multiple sources and displays it on a single screen to help aid navigation. The software comes with an optional 46inch ‘gigapad’ touch device, allowing users to manoeuvre different layers of data, including ENCs, weather data, tidal information and other services like piracy updates.​

The NavStation software, which also operates on standard computers, uses NAVTOR’s ENC service as its ‘base layer’. Subscribers can then add and integrate additional NAVTOR e-navigation products and services.

“So much information is available, and compulsory, today, but managing it is time-consuming, impractical and tiring,” says NAVTOR Business Manager Willy Zeiler.  “Our software integrates everything into one place, meaning navigators no longer have to race around the bridge – from one software to another, from maritime publications and paper charts to ECDIS, from console to console.”

Charts and publications are updated automatically, and Navtor says the route planning function has the potential to deliver fuel and man-hour efficiencies. 

“With NavStation, the planned route is shared with our partner StormGeo, which constantly updates the weather data and provides a dynamically optimised route based on real-time conditions. It gives navigators a better standard of information, leading to better decision making, and achieving better time and fuel savings.”

The software has been in development for the past year, with a series of successful trial installations undertaken with shipowners based in Norway.
