Innovatives Software Kernel zur Darstellung des neuen Datenformats des Internationalen Hydrographischen Büros S-100

Jessica Werner


The history of the project:

At the heart of this project is an innovative software kernel that enables manufacturers of imaging systems, maritime software solutions or electronic nautical charts to display and process the International Hydrographical Organisation's new data format S-100. In future, weather, current and tidal data can be evaluated together with the depth information provided by electronic nautical charts and an optimised route calculated for each and every ship. This will significantly enhance the efficiency and safety of shipping. "We already had the idea for the project before we became a member of MCN," says Björn Röhlich, Sales Director at SevenCs. "But after joining the whole thing really took off. The Team of the MCN office in Hamburg was immediately convinced by our idea and spotted its potential". >> find more information: "MCN is a valuable partner for us"

The history of the project:

The bridge is a ship's brain. Numerous screens and instruments with different user interfaces constantly provide the ship's personnel with a wealth of information. After all, nearly 80% of all collisons and strandings are due to human error. This is where the EU project CASCADe (Model-based Cooperative and Adaptive Ship-based Context Aware Design) comes in. Under the coordination of OFFIS, the international operating ICT research and development institute based in Oldenburg, Lower Saxony, partners in the project from all over Europe are working to optimise the the work processes and design of the man-machine interface located on the ship's bridge.  >> find more information"Global success through supra-regional networking"

The history of the project:

It takes a ship 8-12 hours to sail through the Kiel Canal. Valuable time that could be effectively utilised for maintenance, repair or refitting work on board, throught the participants of an MNC workshop. And that was where the ides of Service Poinr Kiel Canal was born. Sinde March 2014, the web platform www.spkc.eu has been allowing shipping lines, operators or charterers to book services from SPKC member companies for implementation during a ship's passage through the Canal to save expensive lay time.   >> find more information"The world's longest waterway workshop"
