OckamSoft 5

OckamSoft 5OckamSoft 5 is a modular software package that produces graphical displays, controls the instrument system, and provides connectivity via the internet for remote services.


OckamSoft 5 addresses modern color graphics and the confluence of Ethernet, WiFi and Internet technologies, and the multiple devices that can exploit data from them. The display apps Race, EyeApp™ and Vysion™ are designed for different platforms, but all provide a consistent presentation of sailing data. You can run multiple instances of them at the same time, and they will all work together.

OS5 is free to install and run in demo mode. Learn more about what apps require registration...
