Maritime information systems at the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA)

The visit to EMSA will allow participants to get to know the different information systems managed by the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) based in Lisbon, amongst which SafeSeaNet, CleanSeaNet, LRIT, MAR-ICE.

EMSA operates and manages a suite of systems which receive, process, and distribute information on vessel traffic reports (LRIT, SafeSeaNet), satellite monitoring (CleanSeaNet), and Port State Control (Thetis). The services produced by these systems are shared with Member States and the Commission, to supplement and enhance national capacity for vessel traffic monitoring, Port State Control, and maritime pollution preparedness and response.

EMSA has developed a platform to ensure the performance, availability and reliability of all the maritime information systems it hosts. This platform can also integrate and combine different types of data, including data provided by the end user, to produce customised services tailored to user requirements. These services are used by European authorities to obtain a clearer picture of a broad range of activities in the maritime domain, building a common view across EU maritime interests. Enabling governmental and institutional organisations to make use of EMSA’s systems avoids duplication of effort, overlapping infrastructures and unnecessary expenditure
