e-Navigation and Future Trend in Navigation
1 SELEX, Sistemi Integrati, Rome, Italy
ABSTRACT: The International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted the following definition of e-Navigation: ?e-Navigation is the harmonised collection, integration, exchange, presentation and analysis of maritime information onboard and ashore by electronic means to enhance berth to berth navigation and related services, for safety and security at sea and protection of the marine environment?. A pre-requisite for the e-Navigation is a robust electronic positioning system, possibly with redundancy. A new radar technology emerged from the last IALA-AISM conference held in Cape Town, March 2010, where almost all the manufactures companies involved on navigation surveillance market presented ?at various state of development- solid state products for VTS and Aids to Navigation indicating a new trend for this application. The paper present an overview of the systems for global navigation and new trend for navigation aids. The expected developments in this field will also be briefly presented.
