The SESAME Solution II project seeks to further develop and productify a complete e-navigation system, using human-centred design principles, that reduces the administrative workload both onboard vessels and ashore.


Develop and validate a new method of ship traffic management, through digitization, that enables the bridge team and onshore operators to have:

  • Shared situational awareness through digitization of ship to shore communication, port resource planning, and expanded e-Navigation services,
  • Collaborative decision support through shared alerts and traffic predictions,
  • Ensure interoperability and influence standards, and
  • Reduced administrative burden


Automated electronic ship reporting

Building upon the work of Kongsberg Seatex and Kystverket to realize a fully automated pre-arrival and mandatory ship reporting system to a MSW

Develop a Harmonized Display of Navigational Information received via Communications Equipment, supporting this IMO effort led by Sjofartsdirektoratet


Expanded Just-in-time arrival

Building upon the work of Kongsberg Norcontrol, Navtor and Kongsberg Maritime to link port services to the ship's arrival time

Making the business case for e-navigation from the perspective of the ship owner or operator.

Cost-benefit analysis for e-nav services


e-navigation services

Building upon the work of the SESAME Consortium, the project will realize several services accessed via a "maritime cloud."

Administrative burden analysis

Determining how the administrative burden of bridge teams and shore-based operators is affected by automated electronic ship reporting.
