Voyager Navigation Software for German Research Vessel


Global Navigation Solutions (GNS) reported that operators Briese Schiffahrt has chosen to install its Voyager navigation software on Germany's newest research vessel, RV Sonne.
Sonne will carry the GNS Voyager Package 3, which provides the crew with route planning capability, inventory management and automatic updating of paper and digital charts, as well as ordering and cataloguing, together with a free AVCS and Admiralty Information Overlay (AIO) viewer.
