e-navigation is a global strategy developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to facilitate digital, automatic and seamless exchange of information between ships and ship and shore. e-navigation will provide smarter, easier and more efficient communication for the maritime sector worldwide. A global Strategy Implementation Plan for e-navigation approved by IMO in November 2014.
e-navigation is a concept intended to secure simplified and coordinated electronic handling of information onboard and ashore in order to:
- Increase safety of navigation and the protection of the environment in coastal zones and at sea.
- Contribute to higher efficiency and reduced costs in the maritime sector.
- Facilitate the workload onboard and for shore-based functions.
- Provide a basis for improved contingency services.
