Towards e-navigation in Asia-Pacific

The SMART Project

Without doubt the implementation of e-navigation – the user-friendly collection, harmonization and display of essential maritime information – will contribute to enhanced maritime safety and security and support efficient shipping while protecting the marine environment. Various e-navigation solutions are being developed, taking into account IMO guidance and regulations.

The SMART-Navigation Project, organized and funded by the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries, Republic of Korea, was presented during an IMO regional workshop on e-navigation for the Asia-Pacific region, held in Busan, Republic of Korea from 4-6 September. This was reported by the IMO media service on 6 September.
