Product Features

The Next Ocean products are setup in a modular way. Certain features can easily be added or left out depending on your needs. See below overview for all available features and those that are under development. Missing a feature? Let us know!

Wave Prediction

Predict waves, even in confused seas, up to minutes ahead of time

Ship Motion Prediction

Predict 6DOF ship motions by combining wave prediction with vessel RAOs

Significant Wave Height

Estimation for Hs based on 2D wave spectrum measured by radar combined with the ship RAOs

Peak Wave Period

The period of the peak wave as indicated by the 2D wave spectrum measured by the radar

Peak Wave Direction

The direction of the peak wave as indicated by the 2D wave spectrum measured by the radar

2D Wave Spectrum

2D, 'directional', wave spectrum: see the distribution of the wave energy over directions and wave periods

Current Speed & Direction

Estimation for both the current speed and direction as measured by the radar

Output Data Logging

Gain access to our on board data logging API via the HTTP protocol
