Paper Abstract

Currently, ships and crews in port interact with local authorities, and other ships, through standard routine and emergency radio and phone connections. Not withstanding the US Coast Guard National Response Center and its online incident reporting service, there is currently no standardized two-way digital communications between ships and local authorities for the purpose of local real-time information sharing and coordination. In the context of maritime port operations we are exploring the PIERS concept, a digital in port information sharing service to enable a ship's crew to effectively operate with the port authority and, should the need arise, with emergency response teams.
