Fathom Science, an industry leader in Ocean Intelligence, offers unparalleled insights into marine environment conditions.

Our AI-driven dynamic ship routing optimization algorithms, anchored in our state-of-the-art, data-assimilative meteorology and ocean prediction system, charts highly efficient, safe, and environmentally friendly routes for maritime vessels.

Route optimization based on ocean currents and weather can be combined with location-specific biological factors, such as North Atlantic Right Whale presence likelihood, a Fathom product in development.

Key Features

  • Operational, High-Resolution, Data-Assimilative Forecast: Utilizes cutting-edge data assimilation techniques to integrate real-time observations with our high-resolution ocean models and current weather conditions.
  • Dynamic Route Optimization: Our AI-based algorithm continuously analyzes the latest nowcast/forecast data to provide up-to-date optimal ship routing.
  • Customizable Route: Adjust routes based on specific operational requirements, environmental conditions, and safety protocols, ensuring optimal performance across different maritime sectors.

   Technical Specifications

  •  Accuracy : Integrates a diverse array of real-world observational data, encompassing satellite measurements, glider data, ARGO float observations, and other relevant sources. This extensive data integration ensures reliable ocean condition forecasts and route optimization.
  • Update Frequency: Ip to 7 day forecasts, allowing for proactive route planning and adjustments based on the latest environmental conditions.
  • Accessibility: Accessible via web or shipboard device for route adjustments when under way and for real-time monitoring.
