The Piracy Overlay module in NavTracker provides daily updates of piracy as well as distance and positioning information tools. By overlaying piracy information onto existing data of maritime charts, weather info, etc, the user can implement avoidance measures in the passage plan, and continuously have the latest information available to ensure safe courses when the vessel is sailing through an area with risks associated with piracy on the high seas.
Navtor Piracy Update is powered by Bergen Risk Solutions. All incidents are cross-referenced and fact-checked before publication.
