A new arrangement will see an integration of Nautilus Platform with the Kognifai open digital ecosystem
(New York, USA / Oslo, Norway– February 12, 2021) Nautilus Labs and Kongsberg Digital today announce a partnership to include Nautilus Labs in the Kognifai open ecosystem. Together, the companies will deliver joint value to clients through seamless extraction, contextualization and analysis of quality vessel data for use in AI driven performance tools.
The agreement between both firms, the next iteration of which begins this year, will see the integration of Nautilus Platform within Kongsberg Digital’s Kognifai open ecosystem. KONGSBERG’s Vessel Insight service, hosted in Kognifai, provides a secure and dependable vessel-to-cloud data infrastructure which captures, aggregates and contextualizes 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 optimize fleet and voyage performance. Nautilus Platform recommends optimal vessel and voyage operating configurations, automatically surfacing 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, standardized 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 ambit.”

We are excited to partner with Kongsberg Digital to deliver joint value by enabling clients with turnkey access to Nautilus’s predictive insights and optimization 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.”
