Available: 300 free systems. Wanted: 300 ships.
Which will be the first 300 ships in the world to test and validate Sea Traffic Management (STM) with updated systems free-of-charge? Maybe yours?
The STM Validation Project is turning visions into reality. The shipping domain is currently taking giant steps when it comes to information technology. Ships will no longer be separate units in the logistic chain. They will be connected to all the concerned stakeholders: ports, cargo owners, pilots, VTS services etc.
The predecessor project MONALISA 2.0 defined a need for validating STM in ports and on board ships supported by service centres on shore. 300 “STM-Systems” will be installed on board ships, developed and installed by ECDIS-manufacturers free-of-charge, and start running live in 2017. The ships will then be able to use services to further optimise routes, sharing route information with other test vessels and service centre to increase safety and with participating ports to optimise the port calls.
If you want your ships to be part of the future and help shaping it, please ask your ECDIS supplier to apply to the tendering on tendsign.com.
Seaing is believing!
