Port City Challenges

This research seeks to validate the application of Commercial Remote Sensing &. Spatial Information (CRS&SI) technologies to collect data and provide a multi-user, multi criterion decision-making framework for the development and coordination of e-Navigation technology for the maritime industry with the purpose of improving commercial shipping safety and security. The proposed research includes but is not limited to: (1) The definition and scope of the concept of e-Navigation in terms of its purpose, components and limitations; (2) The identification of the key issues and priorities that will have to be addressed in a strategic vision and a policy framework on e-Navigation and how CRS&SI technologies can be integrated into this strategic vision; (3) The identification of both benefits and obstacles that may arise in the further development of the strategic vision and policy framework; (4) The identification of the roles of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), its Member States, other bodies and industry in such development; and (5) The support, integration and possible development of CRS&SI technologies to assist the maritime industry's efforts at coordination.
