    Project Details

    Key findings

    STM – The next step for a safer, more efficient and environmentally friendly maritime sector.

    Sea Traffic Management connects and updates the maritime world in real time, with efficient information exchange. Through data exchange among selected parties such as ships, service providers and shipping companies, STM is creating a new paradigm for maritime information sharing offering tomorrow´s digital infrastructure for shipping.

    European Maritime Simulator Network (EMSN):

    The world’s largest commercial Ships Bridge simulator network consisting of 10 Simulator Training centres and up to 28 Ships Bridges able to participate in the same exercises.

    Warsash Maritime Academy is the only UK centre connected and contributing to the EMSN development and STM testing. Bridge simulation at the University is now at the forefront of simulation innovation. The simulator scenarios are being developed, which require participants to navigate a vessel with and without the use of the STM facility in a variety of vessels and under different conditions.
