EMSN – establishing the baseline of the future

Published: May 20, 2015

Officially inaugurated in November 2014, the European Maritime Simulator Network (EMSN) has already provided value in several test runs. EMSN connects civil shiphandling simulation centres of different brands across Europe. Brian Simpson, the European Coordinator for the Motorways of the Sea: “This offers tremendous potential for distributed simulations, for example emulating large scale traffic situations with individuals manning the bridges of all vessels involved.”

In April the MONALISA 2.0 project ran a successful test week establishing the full baseline of the Formal Safety Assessment of the Sea Traffic Management concept. Fredrik Karlsson, Test Co-ordinator of EMSN: “The technical set-up was very stable during this test run and I feel confident that the EMSN can be expanded into a global network. MONALISA 2.0 is looking forward to the next test runs in June when the new solutions will be put to the test and results will be compared with the baseline.”
