New Mobile App To Increase Navigational Safety On The Port

Conrad Blucher Institute has created a mobile app in order to boost safety along nation’s second-largest port.

New mobile application will provide ship captains and pilots with real-time predictions of ocean water levels and currents along the Houston Ship Channel.

“We’re taking gigabytes of the latest information and finding ways to make it useful to coastal users,” said Dr. Philippe Tissot, associate director of the Conrad Blucher Institute. “Our ‘Transit Time’ application takes this information and uses mobile technologies to present it in a user-friendly format to ship captains and pilots navigating the Houston-Galveston ship channel.”
