Seeking new technology to secure GNSS signals

Would you like to help develop new support tools for the pilot service? Then you should join the dialogue conference on 28 September.

Would you like to help develop new support tools for the pilot service? Then you should join the dialogue conference on 28 September.

The Norwegian Coastal Administration wishes to develop new sensor technology to make GNSS signals in navigation tools less vulnerable.

The Norwegian Coastal Administration’s pilot service contributes to safety at sea by providing the vessel’s crew with the necessary knowledge of local waters during voyages to and from Norwegian ports.

“In addition to the pilot’s professional skills and comprehensive local knowledge, digital support tools with GNSS are used. The systems are effective, but they are also subject to factors that can affect their accuracy,” says Odd Sveinung Hareide, adviser and project manager in the pilot service.

Innovation Norway
The Norwegian Coastal Administration is receiving funding from Innovation Norway to develop support tools for the pilot service that compensate for lack of reliability and can warn the pilot of interference.

The main aim is to improve safety at sea by developing a portable support tool that is adapted to the pilot service’s needs.

Invitation to a dialogue conference
The Norwegian Coastal Administration is now inviting potential suppliers and professionals to a dialogue conference on 28 September, as a preparation for an innovation partnership.

“The purpose of the conference is to initiate dialogue so as to find out whether there are future solutions in the market to meet the Norwegian Coastal Administration’s needs – or whether it is possible to develop them,” explains Hareide.

“We wish to use the knowledge gained from the dialogue conference to formulate the best possible tender documentation for a subsequent innovation partnership.”

 

Time: Monday 28 September at 10:00-11:30, followed by one-on-one meetings.

Registration: By 24 September 2019 – register by clicking here.
