ABSTRACT: Safe ship handling in every situation and under all prevailing circumstances of ship status and the environment is a core element contributing to the safety of the maritime transportation system. Especially in case of emergencies, there is a need for quick and reliable information to safely manoeuvre a ship e.g. to quickly return to the position of a Person-overboard (PoB) accident. Within this paper investigations into onboard manoeuvring support for Person-overboard accidents will be presented. Based on the analysis of selected accident case studies and existing solutions representing the technical state-of-the-art, shortcomings will be identified and discussed and a potential approach for advanced manoeuvring support in the context of e-Navigation based requirements will be introduced and discussed.
