A project on navigation security co-created by Sprint will receive subsidy as part of the international MarTERA competition.
During 2017, a two-stage evaluation of applications was conducted in an international competition organised within the #MarTERA co-fund of the #ERA-NET programme.
As part of an international consortium (of companies and institutions from Poland, Germany and Norway), Sprint submitted an application for the subsidy of a project entitled „Retrospective Analysis of Historical AIS Data for Navigational Safety through Recommended Routes” (acronym: #HANSA). The project was submitted under priority 5: Safety and Security.
A total of 19 projects were recommended for financing, including the project co-created by #Sprint.
Within this project, we will take part in research and development aimed at improving maritime safety through the creation of tools for analysing and identifying the optimal shipping lanes for a vessel’s approach to port, and for any necessary agreements between the competent maritime authority and the bridge of the incoming vessel. Those tasks will be implemented using Big Data analysis and discovering anomalies in AIS reports.
Sprint will also create additional functionalities in connection with analysing risk and statistics for the #SWIBŻ (#MarSSIES) application. Our task will be to create a service for the Maritime Connectivity Platform (formerly Maritime Cloud). This will make it possible to fully demonstrate the results of the project and to enrich this Sprint product with modern #eNav functionalities. In this way, it will be possible for a ship and land to exchange information on the ship’s course, and to correct that course in quasi-real time.
About the competition:
Name of competition: Transnational Call for Research & Innovation Projects in Maritime and Marine Technologies
Subject of competition: Maritime and Marine Technologies for a new Era
The competition focuses on financing research pertaining to maritime technologies. The main objective of the ERA-NET programme, MarTERA co-fund, is to strengthen the European Research Area (ERA) in terms of maritime technologies and Blue Growth.
