NaviPac 4 is the result of a major overhaul of the survey navigation and positioning software developed by EIVA. The flagship of the software suite from the engineering specialist was announced on Tuesday at Oceanology International 2016 in London.
The new software generation introduces both new and improved features, making for an even more effective tool as part of the NaviSuite software suite for offshore and shallow water operations.
These features include a new configuration tool, LiDAR navigation capability and new Helmsman’s Display, just to mention a few.
Moreover, NaviPac 4 brings visualisation and processing features from EIVA NaviModel, the NaviSuite solution for 4D modelling and visualisation. This also means that the software now offers a native, real-time 3D engine.
Continuous strong focus on product development
‘We have increased our investment in product development, as we believe the best way to support our customers during challenging times in the oil industry is by providing them with solutions that will render their operations more efficient both in terms of budget and man-hours in play,’ said EIVA CEO Jeppe Nielsen.
The strategic aim of all NaviSuite development activities sums up what the announcement of NaviPac 4 offers users, as it allows them to:
Eliminate the number of solutions required to carry out survey and construction operations; Standardise their setup by using the same software for different types of operations; Simplify and automate the operation workflow to reduce operator time.
NaviPac is part of the EIVA NaviSuite software suite. It offers a dedicated solution for navigation and positioning during offshore survey and subsea construction operations with features covering survey planning, multi-vessel/-object operation, and sensor instrument recording, just to mention a few.
