SimPlus was invited by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) to showcase its gamut of software and solutions targeted to maritime safety, at the International Safety@Sea Conference 2018. Driven by real-time and predictive analytics, the Near-term Collision Prediction and Avoidance system has been running 24/7 at MPA’s Port Operations Control Centre, to assist its duty officers to detect possible conflicts among vessels at the precautionary areas and send early warnings to vessels for preventive actions. Its ship-borne version, vTrack (Vessel Tracking System) and VTSS (Vessel Traffic Simulation System) were were also demonstrated during the exhibition.
Organised by MPA, the International Safety@Sea Conference is a platform for industry practitioners across different sectors of the maritime industry to share best safety practices at sea. This initiative is part of the Safety@Sea Week, which aims to enhance safety by raising safety awareness and instilling a safety-first culture. International Safety@Sea Week 2018 runs from 18 to 22 June. More information can be found here.
