STM has developed and created a network of interconnected simulator centres in several EU countries – the European Maritime Simulator Network (EMSN). This network enables testing of Sea Traffic Management in complex traffic situations, port approaches, confined waters as well as other functions, like Search and Rescue, as a safer alternative to live testing.

Dates for the simulation

Four simulation campaign weeks using the EMSN are presently scheduled during 2017 and 2018. The scenarios will be held in the South Western Baltic and an area in the English Channel/Southampton in various conditions and with or without the use of STM applications. As a participant you have the option to choose both the center and the date(s) you wish to participate.
