Following an agreement at a meeting hosted by the IMO Secretariat, the manufacturers of ECDIS equipment are set to publicly publish information on the latest versions of the software used to operate their equipment with the aim of ensuring the systems are kept up to date.
The Marine Electronic Highway (MEH) Information Technology System for the Straits of Malacca and Singapore, which had been managed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), has been handed over to the Government of Indonesia.
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) Sub-Committee on Safety of Navigation's decision to take action to address operating anomalies with ECDIS has been welcomed by The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), which it hopes will help to get to grips with this “serious problem.”
Digital Ship magazine provides the latest information about maritime satellite communications technology, software systems, navigation technology, computer networks, data management and TMSA. It is published ten times a year.
