Vizada Launches SkyFile Weather Software

Tuesday, April 07, 2009

Vizada, provider of global satellite communications, has launched SkyFile Weather, a software package for the shipping and fishing industry, which enables users to receive up-to-date and customized meteorological information regardless of the vessel’s location.

The forecasts provided with SkyFile Weather are sourced directly from Météo France, an internationally-recognized meteorological centre, rather than the internet, providing access to reliable, accurate and timely information.

In addition, SkyFile Weather integrates the security zones denoted by the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS), an internationally recognized set of procedures, equipment types, and communication protocols designed to increase safety. In doing so, SkyFile Weather is the only software to enable users to visualize all zones and check the meteorological conditions forecast at the vessel’s destination before departure.

SkyFile Weather can be downloaded for use on any mobile satellite system on board ship (all Inmarsat systems including Inmarsat C, as well as Iridium and Thuraya) and provides access in a few clicks to forecasts in digital map format including high-resolution images.

Forecasts can be customized to contain only the meteorological parameters most relevant to the vessel’s activity (including sea level pressure, wind speed & direction, swell) and information is based on the vessel’s speed and direction to provide accurate and up-to-date forecasts in any location worldwide. In addition, an automatic feature enables users to receive daily forecasts for the same area without renewing the request.
