FleetMon Explorer now gives you quick and detailed information on current weather and sea state conditions anywhere on the globe. We introduced new information layers on
- wind speed and direction,
- swell wave height and direction,
- direction and speed of oceanic currents
which can all be displayed together with live real-time ship movements, on top of satellite maps or nautical charts.

Knowledge of sea state and currents help you in voyage planning, alternative routing and fuel saving. The new functions enable you to analyze a vessel’s behavior with consideration to the conditions it is in.
Enhance your situation awareness with the new maps. Be informed about areas with heavy seas. Keep an eye on hurricances, typhoons and cyclones, their impact and development, right together with your fleet’s positions, in one software tool.
Cyclone “Evan” is leaving Fiji Islands…
…and leaves heavy seas southeastern of the island
Ocean currents in the Southern Pacific are heavily influenced by the cyclone, too.

The wind and sea state service is available for subscribers to the FleetMon.com Pro and Unlimited plans (Pro: wind only). For further details, see our Plans & Prices page. Use the buttons “wind”, “wave” and “currents” within FleetMon Explorer to toggle the respective map layers.
With our sister product FleetMon Satellite Tracking, fleet managers can leverage the full potential of FleetMon’s extensive environmental information for their fleet: FleetMon Satellite Tracking offers weather and sea state both in review and forecast. Additionally, detailed environment data is available for review with any past voyage.

This year Sunsail will present the 80th “Round the Island” race on the cost of South England.
Today we can follow quiet a lot Sunsail Yachts equipped with Class B AIS transponders in the Solent. With the short delay of some seconds (AIS transmission), this is an almost live experience and very attractive to watch.

We did not want to withhold some Fleetmon internas from you, since we attached great value to this matter. (screenshots of App)
Over the last week Thomas programmed a Flash-Application which makes monitoring quiet simple for us. Now we will get alerted about new sources, it calculates the coverage of antennas, shows the last reception and gives us values like: Raws/minute, range in Kilometers and stream quality.
It will make live easier for us with now more then 50 active AIS sources.
[+] added new internal tool for source monitoring, coverage measuring
