By Maritime Reporter & Engineering News
Tuesday, December 24, 2013

With chart and nautical publication management highlighted as one of the most common reasons for deficiency detentions by Port State Control (PSC), ship operators are calling for new and effective navigation solutions.


The features of Thomas Gunn’s new Voyager 4 digital chart management system provides ship owners and managers with the tools to ensure that Safety of Navigation standards on board meet PSC and vetting inspection requirements. New Voyager is a complete British Admiralty (BA) update service that includes both the Annual Summary of NMs and Cumulative List of NMs as well as NAVAREA warnings, Loose Leaf publication updates, updates for BA charts and updates for both AVCS and the Admiralty Information Overlay (AIO). It also comes complete with file compression to increase efficiency and minimize data transmission costs and free access to Thomas Gunn’s Vessel Management Service – a web portal for ship managers to view individual vessel holdings and monitor a vessel’s update and supply status. Enhancements in Voyager 4 include new route-planning tool to make it even easier to identify, update and download information needed for a vessel’s voyage including vessel traffic separation schemes and access to added value information such as piracy and port information all via a single chart based interface; new NAVAREA warnings to provide a complete update service; new AVCS and the AIO display providing access to global Temporary and Preliminary Notices and the Admiralty’s unique safety checks. Voyager 4 was released into the market in May 2013.
