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.
Fees for 2021

The NCA will build the world's first ship tunnel
Following the government's budget negotiations, funds have been set aside for the start-up of the Stad Ship Tunnel in 2021. The project is now estimated to cost NOK 3.45 billion.
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.
