Disruptive digital technology will solve shipping issues

Shipping needs to do far more to attract innovation in order to discover and implement the next disruptive digital technologies. The industry is facing more threats than ever to business-as-usual conditions, from technology changes – mostly from the digital sector – and from environmental regulations. So it should embrace different technologies that could disrupt existing business cases, and encourage innovators to develop solutions to the latest issues.,disruptive-digital-technology-will-solve-shipping-issues_42670.htm


Shipping reaps the benefits of IT and communications investment

Shipowners and managers continue to invest in updating their IT and communications networks – but are they reaping the benefits?,shipping-reaps-the-benefits-of-it-and-communications-investment_42652.htm


Maritime Cloud development holds promise for e-navigation        

Experts involved in ongoing e-navigation testbed projects are reportedly making tangible progress in developing the Maritime Cloud. This would address the need for a logical maritime information structure to support, in a co-ordinated and reliable manner, the electronic exchange of navigational and other information relevant to the safety, security and efficiency of marine navigation.,maritime-cloud-development-holds-promise-for-enavigation_42721.htm


Could caution be fatal on big data?

With the advent of any technological shift there comes a serious dilemma: whether to get on board early and hope to reap the benefits or to adopt a more cautious approach, let others make the mistakes first and invest only once the technology is mature. This, it is suggested, is the case with the advent of ‘big data’ or the industrial internet.,could-caution-be-fatal-on-big-data_42826.htm


Inmarsat plans to launch cyber security app

Inmarsat is planning to launch a cyber security service as the first application on its new Fleet Xpress satellite communications solution for shipping to reduce the risk of cyber attacks on ships.,inmarsat-plans-to-launch-cyber-security-app_42860.htm


Five key questions - and answers - on maritime cyber security

The security of SCADA and control networks on board ships is generally poor. Until recently though, ships had air-gaps around their networks. Now ships are becoming internet connected, and passengers and crew expect to have internet access. Combine that with legacy systems - most ships have a 30 year plus lifetime, and difficulty in updating software on a continuously moving target, and you have a perfect storm for security issues.,five-key-questions-and-answers-on-maritime-cyber-security_42904.htm


Galileo recommended as part of WWRS

The Europe-funded Galileo global navigation satellite system is on track to be accepted as a future component of the World-Wide Radionavigation System (WWRNS). IMO’s Navigation, Communications and Search and Rescue (NCSR) sub-committee agreed to include Galileo as a component of the global navigation system.,galileo-recommended-as-part-of-wwrs_42901.htm


Shipping fleet monitoring tools now, more important than ever

From a ship owner’s point of view, being able to monitor and manage all of his ships’ operations, while they are at sea, is an invaluable tool, in making informed decisions about their employment, their procurement needs, safety, fuel needs etc. It can also be of service, when it comes to evaluating the performance of specific upgrade components, as well as a particular newbuilding design.


Data exchange standards needed for smart shipping

It would be smart for shipping if data fields and exchanges were standardised. But with the great diversity of the industry and ineptitude of regulators, there is little chance that a worldwide data exchange standard will ever be agreed. However, this does not stop the solution providers from calling for standards.,data-exchange-standards-needed-for-smart-shipping_43066.htm


Outdated systems Placing Maritime Vessels at Risk of Cyber-Attack

Maritime vessels are under significant threat of cyber-attack because many are carrying outdated software and were not designed with cyber security in mind, according to new research.
