After seven years of efforts, the port call message format validated within the PortCDM testbeds, as part of the STM Validation project, has now been been adopted by the International PortCDM Council and endorsed by IALA as a S-211 standard within the IHO Registry.
1st July marks the First World Marine Aids to Navigation Day. The day is established by IALA, and aims to promote greater awareness to mariners and the wider public regarding the crucial role of Aids to Navigation to ensure a safe and efficient navigation.
The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore is co-organising a workshop with the International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) to support the operationalisation of e-navigation solutions. This is the first workshop since Singapore’s election to the IALA Council in 2018. The MPA-IALA e-navigation workshop will take place from 8 to 10 April.
Within the Sea Traffic Management, a Port Call Message Format has been developed to enable the coordination of stakeholder activities regarding port calls by providing a standard format to share the necessary information on Estimated Time of Arrival and Estimated Time of Departure. The STM Validation Project will demonstrate the STM concept in test beds in the Nordic and Mediterranean Seas.
During IALA’s 65th session, its Council adopted a new specification guideline for digital services in the maritime domain, with input from EfficienSea2, to give digital solutions work across different oceans and different equipment.
