Jeppesen Marine New Optimization Solution
The latest version of Jeppesen Marine Vessel and Voyage Optimization Solution (VVOS), released in April, offers integration with its worldwide C-Map electronic chart database.
The C-Map cartography integration enables a user to perform a visual safe navigation check of VVOS route alternatives to ensure the recommended route is safe and does not encounter any hazards to navigation. Once the safety check is completed and the VVOS operational route selected, a user can export the passage plan to an ECDIS or INS for execution.
Additional features include enhancements to VVOS’ speed optimizations capabilities and the introduction of tidal current data for a total pilot-to-pilot route optimization in selected areas such as the English Channel and Malacca Straits.
