GNS enhances Voyager PLANNING STATION with new route validation and improved voyage plan features

Oct 04 2019

GNS has released a new version of Voyager PLANNING STATION.

Version 7.4 introduces a route validation tool to provide a more streamlined route planning process, as well as highlighting Alert and Warning Hazards along a route to enhance vessel safety. It also extends the passage plan to include squat and under keel clearance calculations, ENC Navigation Hazards, MARPOL areas and NAVAREA Warnings.

“With this new release of Voyager PLANNING STATION, we are removing one of the major inefficiencies associated with digital navigation and bringing greater simplicity and efficiency to the bridge at a very affordable price” said Hayley van Leeuwen, GNS Director Product and Marketing. “This new version also provides significant enhancements to Voyager’s PASSAGE PLAN tool to make it easier for officers to produce a compliant passage plan.”

Navigation officers using ENCs for navigation must validate each route in the ECDIS and then transfer the route back to a PC in order to get any missing permits and check for ENC updates. With this new version the entire route planning process can be undertaken in one place.
