Bigger ships, faster speeds, greater port efficiency, and more regulations result in a higher demand for public accountability than ever before. The overall goal of e-navigation is to provide an approach on how to face these demands.
If current technological advances continue without proper coordination there is a risk that the future development of marine navigation systems will be hampered through a lack of standardization on board and ashore, incompatibility between vessels and an increased and unnecessary level of complexity.
A major challenge of the e-navigation work is to embrace the human element. There is a clear and compelling need to equip shipboard users and those ashore responsible for the safety of shipping with modern, proven tools that are optimized for good decision making, in order to make maritime navigation and communications more reliable and user friendly.
New AIS base stations established in Svalbard
The Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) has, in cooperation with Kongsberg Seatex, extended the AIS network in Svalbard with four new AIS base stations. The new base stations provides live AIS data of seagoing traffic in the Hinlopen Strait.
Seeking new technology to secure GNSS signals
Would you like to help develop new support tools for the pilot service? Then you should join the dialogue conference on 28 September.
Changes in Navigation at Måløy Bridge
Due to maintenance work at Måløy bridge (Måløybrua) from 31 July to 31 December 2020, the vertical clearance in the eastern fairway will be reduced from 41 to 34 metres.
Norway contributes to shaping the future of shipping
The globally leading nations on autonomous maritime operations came together today for the very first time. They have now launched a cooperation to exchange knowledge and work towards common guidelines for future development. Norway takes part.
Changes in navigation passing the Maaloy bridge
The Norwegian Public Roads Administration will carry out necessary maintenance on the Måløy bridge (Måløybrua) from 31 July 2020 to September 2021. The sailing draft will periodically be lower than normal and the sailing pattern must therefore be temporarily changed.
