SpaceNav presents an entirely new concept of combining space-based remote sensing observations with local maritime ship observations to aid maritime sail planning for fuel, emission and fatigue optimization. High fuel costs, consequences of delays in ship passages, reduction of SO2/CO2/NOx and similar emissions and other constraints are now putting more pressure on the maritime industry. Thus utilizing sea state, sea ice and AIS observations from space-based remote sensing allows the sea masters and planners to integrate more accurate and reliable observations to optimize their sail plan. This project is going to bring remote sensing observations into sail planning tools with the objective of very significantly improve sail plan accuracy and reliability.
