Here you see three vessels during a productive second day of the Prepare Ships April Test Campaign! M/Y @Sea, SSRS Märta Collin and M/S Stena Germanica came together in Gothenburg’s archipelago, with today’s focus on exchanging ECDIS routes and our new dynamic predictor via VDES between the ships, to great success! With a few clicks in the TELKO ECDIS, we were able to transmit and receive routes and predictors, something which is not possible today and speaks to the synergy between our project partners. But it’s one thing to know that our solution work on a technical level. To achieve our goal of improving navigational safety, we put high value on receiving input from the navigators who will end up using those solutions. That’s why our team joined onboard Stena Germanica on her overnight trip to Kiel to test more functionalities together with the bridge team, and we will have more ship-to-ship interactions on her return in Gothenburg on Friday morning.
During week 16, april 19-22 the Prepare Ship project conducted the Final Test Campaign in the archipelago of Gothenburg.
