e-navigation workshop in Chile

The Chilean Maritime Authority (DIRECTEMAR) and the Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) will host an e-navigation workshop for the Correspondence Group on e-navigation in Chile in October.

The two-day workshop, which will take place in Valparaiso on October 21 and 22, will highlight Search and Rescue (SAR) in relation to communication systems in remote areas.

The workshop will carry out an electronic simulation of a SAR situation, and the transmission of LRIT and Satellite AIS data using the Chilean LRIT Data Centre (DC) as communication infrastructure. Information from ship reporting systems used in SAR situations will also be tested.

A final report from the workshop and test-bed will be presented to the Correspondence Group on e-navigation.
