We, the SMART-Navigation project office,
will ensure that all our efforts will provide safe traffic at sea,
will develop new ecological industrial options in the maritime field,
and will ultimately be a smart leader
in the e-Navigation technology global market.

WP7 : Integrated e-Navigation system
Establishing integrated e-Navigation operating system based on ENC aiming to manage maritime safety in Korean waters.


  • The SMART-Navigation project is organized and funded by Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries of the Republic of Korea to implement e-navigation services in its waters based on IMO’s e-Navigation concept adding special features: (1) services for non-SOLAS ships and (2) broadband communication using navigation-dedicated LTE networks (LTE-Maritime) for better connectivity between ship and shore
  • The project is aiming to implement parts of MSP 1-7, MSP10-12 and MSP14-15. Within these MSP’s the project will implement six technical services: (1) Navigation Monitoring & Assistance Service (NAMAS), (2) Ship-borne System Monitoring Service (SBSMS), (3) Safe & Optimal Route Planning Service (SORPS), (4) Real-time Electronic Navigational Chart Distribution & Streaming Service (REDSS), (5) Pilot & Tug Assistance Service (PITAS) and (6) Maritime Environment and Safety Information Service (MESIS). Most of the services are designed for vulnerable ships which are ships with high-accident ratio or huge accident impact socially, environmentally or economically

Operation Scenario

  • Main operation center will be run by Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries for e-Navigation service monitoring and running. Main server and data storages will be set up after discussion with relevant authority.
  • Service monitoring system will be set up in main local service centers for regional management and immediate response in emergency situation. To provide immediate assistance and localized service monitoring, center will be operated as manned.
  • e-Navigation service is provided with Maritime Connectivity Platform(MCP, previously known as the Maritime Cloud) through LTE-Maritime/VDES communication channel
  • The latest updated information (maritime safety information, meteorological information, ENC and etc.)will be provided from relevant authorities for e-Navigation service.
  • Each provided service will be operated with unmanned, but based on monitoring result, there will be intervention of person in charge.
