IMO's Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) approved the e-navigation Strategy Implementation Plan (SIP) in November 2014.
The SIP provides a framework and a road map of tasks that would need to be implemented or conducted in the future to give effect to five prioritized e-navigation solutions:
- improved, harmonized and user-friendly bridge design;
- means for standardized and automated reporting;
- improved reliability, resilience and integrity of bridge equipment and navigation information;
- integration and presentation of available information in graphical displays received via communication equipment; and
- improved communication of vessel traffic services (VTS) Service Portfolio (not limited to VTS stations).
A number of tasks have been identified for development and completion during the period 2015 to 2019.
The MSC approved Guidelines on Harmonization of test beds reporting, aimed at harmonizing the way the results of testbeds are reported to the Organization.
