K-Sim® Planning Station

Planning the routes are vital to any shipping organization, linking business objectives with the daily operation of the ships in the fleet. K-Sim Planning Station is an application for fast and efficient route planning and optimization fully possible to share.

Plan and optimize the voyage

K-Sim Planning Station is a cloud-based application to plan, optimize and share routes. It can either be used by crew onboard to plan real voyages, or alternatively for navigation training for the crew or navigation students.

The cloud-based simultation system is easy accesible via K-Sim Connect, the platform where Kongsberg Digital provide its maritime simulation services. Using ENC chart support and route validation, it enables route planning and validitation as well as competence building in advance of a real voyage with sailing ships, or as part of a navigation simulation training online or at an on-site simulator.

Exchange THE route 

The K-Sim Planning Station supports import and export of the commonly-used RTZ route format to a wide range of applications. This enables, for example, exchange of routes to any ECDIS system, whether installed at a school for type-approved ECDIS training or a fully operational system installed onboard a ship.

In addition to its training benefits, the K-Sim Planning application can be used to relay voyage plans from ships to management teams on land, who can recommend and optimize main and alternative routes for one or more vessels.
