Kongsberg Digital and Nautilus Labs have announced a partnership to include the Nautilus Platform fleet and voyage optimisation tool in the Kognifai open ecosystem. By teaming Nautilus Platform with KONGSBERG’s Vessel Insight service, the companies will deliver joint value to clients through seamless extraction, contextualisation and analysis of quality vessel data for use in AI-driven performance tools.
The agreement will see the integration of Nautilus Platform within Kognifai, complementing the applications already in place from Kongsberg Digital and third-party developers. These include Vessel Insight, which provides a secure and dependable vessel-to-cloud data infrastructure which captures, aggregates and contextualises all data derived from a vessel’s sensors and other assets, transferring it for storage in the cloud.
Nautilus Labs, meanwhile, puts machine-learning algorithms to work, deploying historical, real-time and predictive analytics to optimise fleet and voyage performance. Nautilus Platform recommends optimal vessel and voyage operating configurations, automatically generating insights in the form of recommendations that increase a vessel’s financial returns and improve environmental sustainability.
These technologies seamlessly integrate together to bring about substantial, across-the-board improvements for shipping companies. Kongsberg Digital’s Vessel Insight service gives teams and stakeholders secure and instant access to their vessel data in a structured, standardised and user-friendly format, while the Nautilus Platform provides intelligent and real-time decision support. The result is a joint solution which enhances and encourages cross-departmental collaboration while also reinforcing transparency and accountability between key business stakeholders. The operational advancements additionally help businesses not only meet but surpass their profit and sustainability targets.
“The seamless integration of these platforms is driven by a mutual resolve to deliver consolidated value to our clients, providing them with best-in-class solutions,” says Eirik Næsje, VP of Vessel Insight, Kongsberg Digital. “It’s rewarding to see our ethics and principles reflected in a forward-thinking partner like Nautilus Labs, while the distinction of being a Nautilus-preferred provider will increase our global influence.”
“At Nautilus, we believe that collaboration among industry partners is the best way to promote innovation,” says Leigh Jaffe, VP of Corporate Development at Nautilus. “Partnerships have the power to benefit the entire maritime ecosystem and ocean shipping industry. We are excited to partner with Kongsberg Digital to deliver joint value by enabling clients with turnkey access to Nautilus’s predictive insights and optimisation solution. Proliferating access to high frequency data and tying it close to an innovative offering like Nautilus Platform helps our clients exceed profit and sustainability targets.”
