EONav - Copernicus Data in Support of Maritime Route Optimization
Paper i proceeding, 2018

The EONav ship routing service uses near real time observations of ocean surface currents, waves, wind and sea ice conditions, in conjunction with forecasts from numerical weather and ocean models, to plan the optimal route for a vessel. Products from the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) and several national weather services are used together with in-house products developed for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from satellites such as Sentinel-1, Radarsat-2 and COSMO-SkyMed. A novel data selection algorithm automatically ranks the various data sets and combines them to provide the most reliable met-ocean information. A sail plan optimized e.g. to reduce fuel consumption is determined based on the met-ocean information and is communicated to the ships to assist captains in selecting the best route and speed pattern to their destination.
