OLEX releases version 15.1

Norwegian-based OLEX AS, the manufacturer of complete systems for navigation, plotting and 3D seafloor mapping, is pleased to announce that OLEX 15.1 was released and is available as a free download or through your local OLEX dealer for an upgrade of your system.

  • Support of bottom hardness from SeapiX.
  • Onscreen adjustment of time and date, both LINUX and OLEX.
  • Support for Subsonus firmware 3.
  • More restrictive firewalling.
  • Changing lifespan of AIS tracks.

Moreover, some minor items, such as:

  • 20 seconds timeout with BarentsWatch.
  • Negative depth values related to CHS NONNA (Canadian Hydrographic Service Non-Navigational) bathymetric database.

Plus, some bug fixes related to:

  • Marks under edit with Period.
  • BarentsWatch and POST.
  • Plotter Lines.
  • Ice Charts.
  • Raster Charts.
  • Borderlines for Russian Far-East.
  • Various other small adjustments.



After years of research, development, and testing, OLEX AS has developed and keeps refining the most comprehensive seafloor topography mapping system available on the market. OLEX systems are based on Linux and are considered to be the most stable systems of their kind available on the commercial market. Speed, flexibility, and user-friendliness are important keywords to explain their success.

OLEX can use official and unofficial vector charts, in S57, shape, and SOSI format, from Hydrographic Offices and commercial vendors. The navigation charts are displayed alongside the collected seabed data and the chart visualization software will always strive to achieve a clear and informative chart image and prevent the screen from filling up with unnecessary information, by displaying only information relevant to the current zoom scale. Zooming and chart display is fast, easy, and seamless.
