Adrena Standard

ADRENA TOP-RANKED CONFIGURATION DEDICATED TO RACING

Besides the standard features for navigation and mapping, ADRENA STANDARD is an essential tool for tactical decision-making.

Thanks to its unique ergonomy, ADRENA STANDARD displays accurate data for each course phase with no user intervention on computer.

When preparing the race, the navigator locates and annotates specific areas - Roadbooks - that can be enriched with images by overlaying them on the map.

During prestart, it displays the line, gives its advantage, time to reach it or to change side...

Race Management

During the race, the data are adjusted regarding the course phase running: target speed, target VMG, polar efficiency, downwind target angle, next leg prediction...

Enhanced safety at sea

Safety is enhanced at sea. Any danger (AIS target, coast, etc.) and data changes (performance, wind, etc.) are pointed out by a sound and a visual signal.

Replay debriefing tool

After the race, the Replay tool enables the analysis of different phases, tactical and strategic decisions as well as weather conditions changes.

A POWERFUL TOOL FOR ROUTE OPTIMIZATION AND ANALYSIS

ADRENA STANDARD offers the navigators and routers a useful tool with an overview of optimization and analysis of the course.

It calculates the best route for both inshore and offshore racing and it enables you to hone your race strategy in ways that are unmatched by any other products on the market.

 

Routing Calculation

The Adrena routing automatically avoids the coasts, manages the arks to let and the gates to go through. The routing is calculated for an optimal route to follow; taking into account the weather GRIB, the currents (and their effect on the wind) and the boat's speed polar.

Routing profiles

Thanks to the scanning of variables (wind, polar, GRIB shift or departure), it is possible to launch several successive routings and to display them on the chart in order to compare them.

Inverse isochrones

They enable to visualize the sensitivity of the ETA according to a route shift. If they are parallel, it is possible to change one’s heading without any effect on the route duration.

IsoRoutes

They compare isochrones and inverse isochrones and color a corridor that enables to get to destination with a minimum of delay compared to the optimal route.
