The Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) has approved a set of technical solutions to enable remote and automatic navigation (a-Nav) on ships under the RS regulation, most of which are registered under the Russian flag.
On December 7, in Moscow, the memorandum on intention to equip the series of 10 cargo-passenger ships with autonomous navigation (a-Navigation) systems was signed between the Sakhalin shipping company Morspetsservice and the developer of autonomous navigation systems Kronshtadt Technologies. A similar MOI was also signed on December 8 in St. Petersburg between the shipping company SeaEnergy and Kronshtadt Technologies to equip 10 more general cargo vessels.
Russian developers have launched a new platform to allow for testing of navigation systems used by unmanned surface vessels in a virtual environment, managed by the MariNet working group from the country’s National Technological Initiative (NTI).
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.
