SmartNautilos is a voyage optimization solution that significantly reduces ship fuel consumption and CO2 emissions and increases navigation comfort and safety.

It's based on advanced mathematical simulation models of ship hydrodynamics and fuel consumption, developed in collaboration with the Polytechnic School of the University of Genoa (Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering) that, once calibrated to your vessels, are able to accurately estimate fuel consumption and the effects of the sea conditions on the propulsive performance, safety and navigation comfort.

A powerful multi-objective optimization engine explores all the feasible routes and, given the weather conditions, the operational constraints set by the user and the ship sea keeping in terms of added resistance and motions, proposes the one that optimizes fuel consumption/emissions, safety or navigation comfort.


Key Features

Route & Speed

SmartNautilos optimizes not only the route, but also its speed profile, in order to obtain the best results in terms of fuel consumption/emissions reductions and navigation safety and comfort.


No software or hardware installation required: everything you need is only a web browser with Internet access on Windows, Mac, Linux or mobile devices, and you are ready to cruise!


In a few seconds, SmartNautilos can explore thousands of potential routes: this allows you to analyze the sensitivity of the solutions, trying multiple constraint settings.

To Use

SmartNautilos is designed with the principle that it must support the master of the vessel, simplifying the voyage planning phase: for this reason it is very quick, easy and intuitive to use.

Weather Forecast

SmartNautilos supports the use of weather forecast maps at any resolution level and with different representations of relevant physical quantities (waves, wind, currents).


SmartNautilos' optimization engine can handle both static (defined on a geographical basis) and dynamic constraints (e.g. angles between the ship and the direction of wind/sea, amplitudes, accelerations and motion frequencies in different areas of the ship).
