Navico chooses CalAmp device for its connected-vessel programPosted on
Navico said it has selected a CalAmp telematics device to support Navico’s new cloud-enabled GoFree Connected Vessel program to monitor onboard engine, sensor and navigation data.
CalAmp’s device management and maintenance software platform, PULS (Provisioning/Programming, Update and Logistical System), also has been customized to support Navico’s over-the-air device management and firmware updates for vessels in port or at sea.
“CalAmp’s LMU-4530 and extensive development resources are helping to power Navico’s GoFree Connected Vessel program to deliver vessel tracking, marine engine diagnostics and a comprehensive trip management program,” Phil Gaynor, senior telematics product manager at Navico, said in a statement.
“Navico’s GoFree program also includes a dynamic sonar information product that enables crews to contribute to and share cloud-based marine cartographic data to locate prime fishing locations.”
“With cellular, satellite, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity options, the rugged, weather-resistant LMU-4530 is ideal for an array of marine applications,” said Justin Schmid, senior vice president and general manager of CalAmp’s telematics systems business.
“Equipped with actionable data, vessel operators can make more informed decisions about routes, navigation and shipboard maintenance.”
