Amongst others, testing and verifying the feasibility and benefits of STM and its solutions shall be done in the European Maritime Simulator Network (EMSN), a macro simulation environment for ship handling simulators. This is an open IEEE 1278 standard network protocol enabling interactive communication between distributed simulation environments. Based on an introduction into ML 2.0, the proposed STM concept is introduced, its expected impacts are listed and Key Performance Objectives are derived. The backgrounds on the EMSN are given and it is shown how it can assist in assessing the impact of STM?s Key Performance Indicators.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.09.04.13}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Ship Handling, Manoeuvring, Maritime Simulator, Sea Traffic, Simulators Network, Sea Traffic Management (STM), European Maritime Simulator Network (EMSN)} }
