Victoria, BC – March 3, 2015 – Latitude Technologies has launched WebSentinel 5, a significantly enhanced new version of Latitude’s very popular web-based flight tracking, mapping, and event messaging platform. WebSentinel 5 is available now for all WebSentinel customers.
With WebSentinel 5, flight dispatchers and customers have access to a variety of weather overlays including radar, IR, and visible layers as well as TAF and METAR reports with one-click forwarding to the aircraft flight deck. WebSentinel 5 offers airport lookup and weather station graphical displays, visual navigation charts (VNCs) as well as high and low en route IFR charts. Further enhancements to WebSentinel’s user-friendly configurability, WebSentinel 5 introduces selectable, movable, and resizable panels enabling individual users to build and maintain multiple independent maps and multiple independent messaging sessions. WebSentinel 5 also extends fleet-wide historical snapshots in addition to traditional per aircraft history displays.
Latitude Vice President of Information Services, Tim Curtis, led the WebSentinel 5 development project. When announcing the launch of WebSentinel 5, Tim commented, “Our great team of developers has delivered huge advances in WebSentinel functionality and configurability while maintaining the usability that our customers have come to love. WebSentinel continues to evolve in response to changing technologies and the expanding needs of our customers – delivering more and more value.” Tim concluded, “Latitude will continue to enhance the features and functionality of WebSentinel with more configurable map layers and other tools that our customers have asked for and we will be very pleased to provide.”
To ensure all customers have ample opportunity to transition their dispatch, fleet operations, and other WebSentinel user groups, Latitude will continue to maintain and support earlier versions of WebSentinel for the remainder of 2015.
