International cooperation on e-Navigation

Sweden, Denmark and South Korea have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to implement common test beds for future e-Navigation solutions, with the aim of promoting the development of new technologies for safe and efficient transport at sea.

The Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA) is already leading what is probably the largest e-Navigation project currently underway in Europe, MONALISA 2.0.

The main objective of MONALISA 2.0 is to streamline Sea Traffic Management (STM) and to find solutions that will improve dynamic route planning and collaboration, while promoting a common exchange of voyage plan information.

SMA says that it believes a global test bed to be essential to be able to demonstrate the concept of Sea Traffic Management in full scale, hence its support for this MoU.

"There are initiatives in other countries as well, and we welcome them to join the MoU," adds Peter Fyrby, director of research and innovation at the Swedish Maritime Administration.

"Sweden, South Korea and Denmark are all leading nations in the field, and this agreement is a milestone enabling global solutions."

"Today, there are many regional test environments. However, shipping is global, and we need to ensure that new solutions will work across the oceans."
