Maritime Situation Monitoring for Safe Navigation on Northern Sea Route
1 SPIIRAS Hi Tech Research and Development Office Ltd, St. Petersburg, Russia
ABSTRACT: Considering growing intensity of navigation on Northern Sea Route and of continuous exploration and development of Arctic shelf, problems of maritime situation monitoring in Arctic become particularly important. Firstly, complex operational informational support of activities in Arctic is needed. Secondly, constant access to actual and valid information about hydro-meteorological, navigational and ice situations is required. Solution of stated problems entails integration, processing and analysis of large amounts of heterogeneous data. Consequently, development of unified system for situation monitoring and intellectual support is essential. Such system allows to execute operational monitoring of dangerous situations of different sort (natural or anthropogenic) that influence safety of objects in Arctic region, and to perform intellectual analysis of such situations and prompt provision of suitable recommendations.
