SeaWave Introduces SeaWave Navigator

Thursday, March 21, 2002
SeaWave LLC released its newest maritime communications software, SeaWave Navigator Version 1.1. SeaWave Navigator is a low-cost, user-friendly communications solution, providing Internet e-mail, NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) color weather charts, NOAA text weather forecasts, and other communication services to professional mariners. SeaWave Navigator is the software component of SeaWave’s marine communications system, which utilizes high frequency (HF) radio technology to securely transmit digital data to vessels at sea. Eliminating the need for costly capital investment, SeaWave Navigator employs standard Single Sideband (SSB) hardware and does not require specialized and expensive equipment. SeaWave Navigator’s Microsoft® Windows-based, point-and-click software is easy to use and designed for computer users at all experience levels. Each member of a vessel’s crew and passengers can be given an individual account with administrator assigned permissions, allowing administrators to track usage and budget communications spending. By streamlining functions, SeaWave Navigator reduces vessel administration to a minimum. “SeaWave Navigator 1.1 takes full advantage of recent improvements in back-end technology and robust programming code. Combined with a clean graphical user interface and the utilization of Microsoft Windows conventions, SeaWave Navigator is an exceptional product for marine communications,” said Mark Witsaman, vice president of technology and development, SeaWave LLC.

SeaWave Navigator sends and receives text and data as a true Internet e-mail message. Each SeaWave customer has a specific Internet e-mail address assigned to them, enabling them to receive messages from any person using any e-mail software. Likewise, SeaWave customers can send messages to any Internet e-mail address anywhere in the world. This contrasts with short-message-services (SMS) and text-message services that are often referred to as e-mail. SeaWave e-mail uses the standard Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), operates a mail server residing on the Internet, and uses the standard convention of username@domain.com. SeaWave Navigator Version 1.1 offers text and color weather forecasts to all users. Quick to obtain and easy to understand, these forecasts are derived from accurate and current NOAA weather data. SeaWave’s ability to send low-cost, high-resolution, color forecasts provides mariners with a service unparalleled in marine communications. SeaWave delivers this information at a standard cost, enabling users to easily and accurately budget their vessel’s weather forecast schedule. SeaWave Navigator is available from authorized marine electronics dealers. For fleet sales or to assist in identifying a dealer, contact SeaWave by phone at 800-746-6251 or by e-mail at sales@seawave.com. Transmission charges are billed in data increments, at a rate of $0.30 (US) per first kilobit and $0.075 per quarter kilobit thereafter. The SeaWave Communications System is $1495.00 and includes: the SeaWave Digital Communications Modem and SeaWave Navigator Version 1.1; Installation and User Manual; and required cables. The one-time activation fee is $275.00.
