A Discussion on e-Navigation and Implementation in Turkey
1 Istanbul Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey
ABSTRACT: Electronic navigation, which has great important for ship management, has taken a step with technological improvements. In the result of these enhancements, new systems appeared as well as existing systems and these systems began to be integrated each other or used data of obtaining from the others like that AIS, Radar, ECDIS etc. All these and likely future systems have been put together under the roof of enhanced navigation (e-navigation) is defined by organizations such as International Maritime Organization (IMO), International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA), General Lighthouse Authority (GLA) etc. Especially IALA guidelines serve as model future applications in Turkish waterways. In this study aim to redefine e-navigation concept based on maritime safety awareness, maritime service portfolio (MSC 85/26) and discuss possible applications.
