ABSTRACT: The advantage of the latest technical development in the field of automation, electronics, telecommunications, informatics, telematics, geomatics and global position fixing techniques, achievement in data storing, processing, analysing, transferring and visualisation should be taken into account and applied to the maritime technology. We should build new E-Navigation era using those new technologies. In the paper the Authors try to discuss the main tasks of the maritime community for the near future in the field of E-Navigation. The authors believe it is now appropriate to develop a broad strategic vision for incorporating the use of new technologies in a structured way and ensuring that their use is compliant with the various electronic navigational and communication technologies and services that are already available. The aim is to develop an overarching accurate, safe, secure and cost-effective system with the potential to provide global coverage for vessels of all sizes. Implementation of this new strategic vision might require modifications to working methods and navigational tools, such as inner ship's computer net, charts, bridge display equipment, electronic aids to navigation, communications and shore infrastructure. At this stage, it is difficult to be precise about the full extent of the changes that might be necessary to fully deliver this vision. However, there might need to be changes to a number of regulatory instruments, including the appropriate chapters in the SOLAS Convention (chapters IV and V mainly). This proposal is not in any way intended to conflict with the clear principle, as confirmed in the SOLAS Convention, of the master's authority for the operational safety of the vessel, and in UNCLOS, of freedom of navigation rights.
