A sophisticated, yet user-friendly system that is both comprehensive and cost effective. Our weather functionality is an essential tool for both the crew at sea as well as the management on shore.
NAVTOR offers an integrated weather and routing functionality of AWT’s Bon Voyage System (BVS) that is an easy to use graphical marine voyage optimization system that provides on-board and around-the-clock weather-routing information.
Voyage Optimization Calculate Least Time, Fuel or Cost Using your on-board computer, BVS provides the most recent weather and ocean data to the ship by broadband or email communications in a highly compressed format to minimize communication costs. This data is then used to generate colour enhanced maps and graphics that allow the ship’s captain to easily view and interpret potential problem areas in advance.
BVS has an improved optimization algorithm along with customizable speed down and consumption curves that deliver more accurate estimates of fuel cost and time en-route. Both weather induced constraints and no-go zones can be set to account for the special requirements of each particular voyage.
