Prototype design and implementation of marine transport safety management system in Poland.

Marine Traffic Engineering Research Team implements the development project: marine transport safety management system in Poland. The project is funded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education (No. A 0097 R00 1911).

Aim of the project is to build and implement a maritime safety management system on Polish waters of the Southern Baltic. The system is designed to increase the safety of navigation in the South Baltic through effective maritime transport safety management, consisting in a cyclic process of estimating the level of safety, comparing it to an acceptable level and to develop optimal technical solutions and legal regulations resulting in increase of safety level. System implementation will take place in maritime administration units on a various levels (Ministry of Infrastructure, Maritime Offices) and the Sea Ports Authorities. The system will be divided into two subsystems (a subsystem of risk management in open and limited area on the Southern Baltic). Prototype of functional system built under the project and implemented in the maritime administrations will consist of the real devices (standard computer domain) and software built in the project.

Research work on the subject of the project is carried out by the Institute of Marine Traffic Engineering Maritime University since 2000. Series of models and methods for assessing navigational risk in open and limited areas was a part of this work. This research not resulted in implementation of marine safety management system. The current status of research in this field allows us to build and implement a marine safety management system on the Southern Baltic.
