Online IMS awareness session for Poland
A national session on Integrated Maritime Services (IMS) awareness for Poland has been delivered by EMSA.
More than 40 users from the Polish maritime administration (Maritime Office Szczecin, Maritime Office Gdynia, Ministry of Infrastructure) and Maritime Search and Rescue services participated in the session, which was geared towards providing users with a more in-depth awareness of the vessel traffic monitoring and information system (VTMIS) organization, as well as the VTMIS-related graphical and system-to-system (s2s) features and functionalities.
Participants received an overview of the Automated Behaviour Monitoring (ABM) algorithms which help to alleviate the workload of maritime surveillance operators. They also learnt about the Integrated Maritime Services (IMS), SafeSeaNet (SSN), Copernicus Maritime Surveillance (CMS) and IMS and SSN Graphical interfaces (SEG, IMS App) enhancing the maritime domain awareness on the global level.
The world-wide maritime picture and operational analytics were demonstrated together with operational examples of the usage of the systems and interfaces. IMS awareness events are tailor-made sessions organised at the request of Member States. They accompany existing training activities, focusing on specific topics of interests of the national users, and result in more effective usage of the Integrated Maritime Services.
