Senior lecturer, Captain Zakirul Bhuiyan recently presented 'Sea Traffic Management - the next breakthrough for VTS and port efficiency' at the Smart Ports Summit, which took place at Canary Wharf, London.
This event brought together experts and key stakeholders from across the supply chain to discuss how to integrate smarter operations across port and terminal activity.
Captain Zakirul Bhuiyan presenting the STM Project at the Smart Ports Summit
The Sea Traffic Management Validation (STM) Project is a three-year project with a €43m budget, co-financed by the European Union, which will end in June 2019. Over 50 partners from 13 countries are involved representing private, public and academic sectors, with the Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA) acting as the lead authority.
Partly inspired by the European SESAR program, which looked at the next generation of air traffic management in the aviation industry, STM’s goals are to improve safety, operational efficiency and environmental performance in the maritime industry by proposing a standardised digital method of information sharing between all interested actors in the maritime chain, which is a good example of the IMO’s e-navigation policy.
The STM Validation Project follows on from the MONA LISA and MONA LISA 2.0 projects, which defined the concept of sea traffic management and has set out to validate the concepts in large-scale test beds in both the Nordic and Mediterranean regions. This has encompassed up to 300 vessels, 13 ports and five shore based service centres, as well as 13 simulation centres in the connected European Maritime Simulation Network (EMSN). Warsash Maritime Academy is the only UK centre connected and contributing to the EMSN development and STM testing.
