The Baltic Navigational Warning Service, created as part of the STM (Sea Traffic Management) Validation project, has added a function to allow navigational warnings to be sent directly to an onboard ECDIS unit using digital machine to machine communication, automating the process to make information available more quickly and to reduce crew workloads.
The IALA (International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities) Council has adopted a new specification guideline for digital services in the maritime domain, based on input from the EfficienSea2 project led by the Danish Maritime Administration.
A computer program has been developed to calculate the actual probabilities of collisions and groundings in specific waters and to predict what will happen if shipping lanes are changed or if the ship traffic starts behaving differently than previously.
Digital Ship magazine provides the latest information about maritime satellite communications technology, software systems, navigation technology, computer networks, data management and TMSA. It is published ten times a year.
