These authors have analyzed actions taken in this field and some aspects related to the operations of maritime autonomous surface ships (MASS). The presented case study refers to a ship with a skeleton crew on a deep sea voyage, where the ship’s autonomy is narrowed to the fourth stage of transport task – sea voyage and its navigational aspect.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.13.04.04}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Situational Awareness at Sea, Sea Traffic Management (STM), Autonomous Ship, Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS), Advanced Autonomous Waterborne Application (AAWA), MASS Technology, MASS Autonomy, MASS Safety} }
