powerful optimization algorithm evaluates thousands of candidate
routes to find the minimum time and least cost routes for
user specified arrival times while satisfying the safe operating
criteria for motion, engine overload and hull stress limits.
sophisticated ship motion program interfaced with sensor
input recommends optimum speed/rpm and heading to reduce
risk of heavy weather damage.
