Networked systems for situational awareness and intervention in maritime incidents

2nd and 3rd October workshop participation

October 6, 2014

On the past 2nd and 3rd October, the NETMAR project was represented in the international seminar "New scenarios of maritime safety in the European Union. Reflections after the Erika and Prestige disasters" by portuguese (FEUP), Spanish (FUAC, Portos de Galicia and Tecnalia) and irish (Limerick University) partners.
At the opening of the seminar, João Sousa made a presentation about the project in terms of objectives, major achievements so far, and future plans.
The seminar focused on the social economic and security implications of maritime disasters, with special reference on the Erica and the Prestige cases, this one more focused on the criminal sentence.
Other major and relevant topics approached was the administrative procedures, aeronautical certifications and permission to fly UAV´s in Spanish airspace, which new laws are still somehow fuzzy and not very clear.
Finally, a round table with specialists from different areas discussed present and future issues to be approached in terms of Maritime Safety.
