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.


The SMART-Navigation Project aims to :
  1. 1. improve the quality & efficiency of maritime transport while enhancing the quality of life for mariners at sea
  2. 2. contribute to IMO's strategic implementation of e-Navigation
        * Developing e-Navigation technologies, validating effectiveness of e-Navigation services
  3. 3. create accompanied growth of world maritime community via e-Navigation
        * Reducing maritime accidents, Enhancing shipping efficiency, Maritime Domain Awareness, and Etc
