A Fusion Network for Nautical On-Board Communications

Capt. Samson Joseph


Modern maritime on-board communications have to be improved for safety and security. Current technology provides ease and expediency together to the crew and passengers with the help of ubiquitous technologies. Making use of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) on board is a current custom of implementing ubiquitous technology for ships as it is important for an on-board communication system which provides reliability and flexibility for handling emergency situations. Two key phases of this scheme are: merging different on-board communiqué networks into a fusion system and enabling the cooperation between them; smoothly incorporating these networks with a consideration of backward compatibility, ease of deployment and association to shore via Internet. A combined integration move towards is selected based on comprehensive analysis.
