E-Nav - Efficient Electronic Navigation at Sea
Research Project , 2019 – 2021

E-NAV will develop a sail plan service and online training platform for the shipping industry. From real time data feeds received from meteorological, coastal, sea state, vessel and Earth Observation data archived in Copernicus, E-NAV will compute and transmit optimised sail plans to fleet managers and navigators. It will reduce fuel consumption, minimise hull fatigue, sail time, and reduce CO2 emissions. E-NAV will also include a training module with online gamification tools to teach navigators.
