New Features for Voyager Planning Station

Posted by Eric Haun
Tuesday, December 03, 2013

Users of the Voyager Planning Station, developed by Global Navigation Solutions, the maritime services group, can now plot their route directly onto the official ENCs on board their vessel. Visitors to this year’s Marintec China exhibition will have the opportunity to see a demonstration of this new feature.

Providing a single all inclusive back of bridge solution, Voyager Planning Station enables the navigator to passage plan using live data. A route can be plotted directly onto Voyager’s enhanced ENC display, rather than on a simple GIS background, and then transferred onto the ECDIS – effectively providing ECDIS functionality to the back of bridge and offering unrivalled time saving and accuracy. The passage planning system also has the advantage of enabling the operator to identify missing ENCs and order updates where necessary.

The world class SPOS Onboard weather solution from Meteo has now been incorporated into Voyager Planning Station giving customers direct and instant access to weather information.

Mike Robinson, CEO of Global Navigation Solutions is looking forward to presenting the Voyager Planning Station at Marintec. “Our team of specialist maritime experts and software engineers working together in our Research and Development Centre in Aberdeen are second to none,” he said.”We recognize that China is a growth market and we are delighted to have the opportunity to demonstrate these time saving new features at this major exhibition. Our Centre of Excellence is creating products which are already transforming the market, ensuring our customers stay at the forefront of developing technology.”

Voyager Planning Station also includes Admiralty Information Overlay display, significantly improving the efficiency of the passage planning process by providing preliminary information that has been incorporated into paper charts but not yet included in ENCs. Other unique features include 100% complete BA Chart Update Service including Annual and Cumulative Notices to Mariners, global list of Navarea Warnings, AVCS and ARCS updates, access to the timesaving Global Navigation Solutions Looseleaf service, free Vessel Management Service to help manage the fleet and the best value data communications costs on the market today.

Voyager Planning Station is available in three packages designed to suit the way a vessel or fleet navigates: BA Paper Update Service specifically designed for vessels navigating with BA charts and publications: BA Paper and Digital Update Service for vessels making the transition to digital navigation and BA Digital Update Service, designed for vessels navigating with ECDIS.

In addition to SPOS Weather Solutions, Voyager Planning Station offers a growing list of added value modules. These include AtoBviaC Port to Port, ICC Piracy Reports, Shipping Guides’ Findaport and Regs4Ships, in addition to AIO updates, ADP updates and BA loose leaf updates.
