The MONALISA 2.0 project’s successor, Sea Traffic Management (STM) Validation Project, aims to be the next step for a more efficient and environmentally friendly maritime sector. For this large e-navigation project, 300 ships will start using STM services on-board, 13 ports will implement Port CDM solutions and the world’s largest civil maritime simulator network will be enlarged and used for extensive testing of complex traffic situations.
A sizeable number of apps have been developed for the maritime industry, with functions ranging from checklists that help with international convention requirements to TripAdvsor type apps that inform sailors about facilities in marinas. However, few apps are available to support professional commercial navigation.
Willy Zeiler, Marketing & Communications Manager, NAVTOR analysed the ‘’e-navigation solutions in the smart shipping context’’ during the 2016 SMART4SEA Forum using the example of his company’s back-of-bridge planning software which simplifies the process of safe and economical route planning, including easy access to and use of digital e-Nav information.
The modernization of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS), e-navigation implementation and new and amended ships’ routeing proposals are among items on a busy agenda as the third session of IMO’s Sub-Committee on Navigation, Communication, Search and Rescue (NCSR) gets underway (29 February-4 March).
E-navigation can offer enhanced safety, better environmental protection, improved traffic management and commercial benefits; and both the technological advances and the advantages they can bring are continuing to evolve. That was the message from IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim in his keynote speech to the International E-Navigation Underway conference
