Getting connected for efficient, safe and sustainable traffic at sea

We create and implement innovative and smart solutions for efficient, safe and sustainable traffic at sea through improved connectivity for ships. EfficienSea2 is a demonstrator in the Arctic and Baltic Sea and the first generation of a coherent e-Navigation solution. Through global collaboration, use of open-source software and an explicit aim for standardised solutions, we will pave the way for a global roll-out of e-Navigation.


Data exchange using VHF channels has been tested in the Baltic Sea

A new communications system using the VHF radio channels in order to secure data exchange at sea has been tested by Cobham SATCOM in the EU-funded project EfficienSea2. The system will increase the range of inexpensive, land-based, data connectivity at sea, but will also be able to connect through satellites.



EfficienSea2 develops the essential solutions that are the prerequisites for taking e-Navigation from testbeds to real-life implementation. The innovation centrepiece of EfficienSea2 is the Maritime Cloud, a novel communication framework that enables efficient, secure and reliable information exchange in and around the maritime sector.

More about the solutions


EfficienSea2 is led by the Danish Maritime Authority and has 32 dedicated partners from 12 countries in the Baltic Sea region and beyond, all carefully selected to ensure maximum impact of the developed solutions.
