UK & Greece : Thomas Gunn launches new generation Voyager at Posidonia 2012
Wednesday, 06 June 2012
Visitors to Posidonia 2012 will be the first to see new Voyager 4, the latest incarnation of the highly regarded automated chart management system from Thomas Gunn Navigation Services.
The Voyager Series has earned a reputation for innovation, reliability and responsiveness to customers’ needs – and Voyager 4 is no exception. Packed full of new applications, Voyager 4 offers the mariner an easy to use, cost effective and high quality database of navigational data neatly displayed using an interactive map interface with Admiralty information overlay which can be customised to individual voyage requirements.
“We have incorporated a number of industry firsts into the new Voyager,” explains Thomas Gunn, founder and Managing Director of Thomas Gunn Navigation Services. “The new Route Planning functionality will enable the Mariner to plot an optimum route and then automatically receive a tailored list of corrections for that route alone. Our Digital Loose Leaf application delivers digitised loose leaf updates straight to the vessel.
“We are also very proud of our partnerships with organisations such as Shipping Guides, Regs4ships and SPOS, and of new features such as ENC display and touch screen technology which have been developed in response to customer feedback. Voyager 4 will ensure the bridge has access to the specialist navigation tools essential for a safe and efficient passage.”
As part of the service provided by Thomas Gunn, subscribers to the Voyager system will automatically receive the new Voyager 4 software. Voyager’s state of the art file compression technology ensures easily delivery of weekly updates for British Admiralty Notices to Mariners and Tracings, and Admiralty Vector Chart Service and Admiralty Raster Chart Service updates. To ensure that the mariner continues to have the most up to date port information available to them, any amendments available will also be included in the weekly Voyager updates service..
Future developments incorporating Distance Tables from AtoBviaC, publications from Witherby Seamanship library and anti-piracy tools are in the pipeline and will be announced when ready.
The Voyager service does not require any additional communication equipment thereby eliminating any hardware, installation and on-going maintenance costs. Voyager software is installed on a Windows PC and can be updated via email or web service.
