The TransNav 2013 Symposium held on the Gdynia Maritime college, Poland in June 2013 has introduced jointly quite a lot of members from worldwide. this system has offered a number of contributions,  permitting to appear at many features of the navigational protection from a variety of various issues of view. subject matters provided and mentioned on the Symposium have been: navigation, protection at sea, sea transportation, schooling of navigators and simulator-based education, sea site visitors engineering, ship's manoeuvrability, built-in structures, digital charts platforms, satellite tv for pc, radio-navigation and anti-collision platforms and lots of others. This e-book is a part of a sequence of four volumes and gives an summary of advances in Marine Navigation and is addressed to scientists and execs inquisitive about study and improvement of navigation, security of navigation and sea transportation.

Enterprise Information Systems V

This booklet can be of curiosity to details expertise pros, specially these operating within the fields of structures integration, databases, choice help structures, brokers and web computing. it is going to even be of use to managers operating with details platforms and requiring an information of present tendencies in improvement equipment and functions

Cooperative Systems Design: A Challenge of the Mobility Age

The most aim of the COOP meetings is to give a contribution to the answer of difficulties on the topic of the layout of cooperative platforms, and to the combination of those structures in organizational settings. the most assumption at the back of the COOP meetings is that cooperative layout calls for a deep figuring out of cooperative paintings in teams and enterprises, related to either artifacts and social practices.

Agile Systems Engineering

Agile structures Engineering offers a imaginative and prescient of structures engineering the place targeted specification of necessities, constitution, and behaviour meet greater matters as comparable to protection, safeguard, reliability, and function in an agile engineering context. World-renown writer and speaker Dr. Bruce Powel Douglass contains agile tools and model-based structures engineering (MBSE) to outline the homes of whole platforms whereas averting blunders which could take place while utilizing conventional textual necessities.

Emotion-Oriented Systems

The Affective Computing area, time period coined by way of Rosalind Picard in 1997, gathers a number of medical components resembling machine technology, cognitive technological know-how, psychology, layout and artwork. The humane-machine interplay platforms aren't any longer completely quick and effective. they target to supply to clients affective stories: user's affective kingdom is detected and regarded in the interplay; the process screens affective kingdom; it may possibly cause approximately their implication to accomplish a job or get to the bottom of an issue.

Example text

The proposed paper structurally analyzes the usage and security implications of mentioned, illegal software. Illegal ENC security issues are discussed in the context of safety-of-navigation related possible – real scenarios using unproven and non-validated electronic navigational charts. computing systems, it is expected that ECDIS systems will be implemented on all kind of vessels increasingly.

If we sum up the above remarks and requirements imposed by relevant regulations in force, it seems unquestionable that these course indicators should be regularly controlled. Students of navigation learn about magnetic variation and the role of magnetic compass in the first year of their studies. 4, 2008. 1091, Issues to be considered when introducing new technology on board ship, IMO 2003 [6] IMO MSC/Circ/1061, Guidance for the operational use of integrated bridge system (IBS), IMO 2003 [7] International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), IMO, 2009, (Consolidated Edition) [8] NAV: Report to the Maritime Safety Committee.

However, ECDIS has benefits in terms of time saving in route planning and monitoring, preventing accidents and thus protecting the ship and marine environment. About 80% of reported accidents at sea are caused by human errors, which are consequences of fatigue, extensive work in navigation and others. Number of accidents at sea could be reduced by the introduction of electronic navigation systems, since they would help in mitigating the navigator fatigue and stress. The ECDIS is, therefore, advanced IT tool that allows navigation during which it monitors the position, and collision/grounding avoidance for 24 hours.
