The team behind the Maritime Cloud has decided to change the name of the communication framework. The new name, Maritime Connectivity Platform (MCP), has been chosen to provide clarity and support e-Navigation going from testbed to real life implementation.
Through sharing of data between vessels, new tools developed to enable more digital communication can make Search and Rescue operations both faster and better.
The European project EfficienSea2 is testing a new Smart Buoy solution which will allow ships to have improved navigational services and to receive data in support of vessel operations when reaching ports.
The ArcticWeb is a web based platform that has been developed as a part of the EU project, Efficiensea 2. The main objective is to improve maritime safety in the Arctic. Help us by participating in the simulations.
The EfficienSea2 project, which aims to implement innovative and smart solutions to increase efficient, safe and sustainable traffic at sea, has finished a full-scale simulation of a wide variety of e-Navigation solutions.
The European project Efficiensea2 has joined forces with Royal Arctic Line to complete the first-ever test of how space weather in the Arctic region influences the full range of a vessel’s communication channels.
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.
The team behind the Maritime Cloud have included a prototype for an endorsement tool in its latest update. When in use, it will allow international organisations, national authorities and regular users to endorse certain services for specific use.
A standardised guideline potentially covering all technical e-Navigation services has been agreed in an international committee under IALA. The guideline can stand alone, but it is also compatible with the Maritime Cloud.
