Today's solely dependence on satellite navigation systems in the maritime domain lacks of resilient position, navigation and time information. The gap towards resilient navigation has been identified by the IMO as a result of the e-navigation strategy and its risk control option analysis. The development of alternatives to satellite navigation systems are of utmost importance.
The R-Mode Baltic Project team contributes to resilient navigation by the development and installation of a Ranging-Mode (R-Mode) testbed in the Southern Baltic Sea. The R-Mode technology itself is a promising new approach that implements a terrestrial navigation system within already existing maritime radio infrastructure.
During the conference you will be guided through the entire R-Mode Baltic Project achievements as well as results and conclusions. You will get an insight into the deployed R-Mode technology that is currently in operation at eight maritime radio beacon transmitter sites and three VDES base station sites. We will present the latest R-Mode equipment developments and emphasis that the R-Mode technology provides the potential to serve the mariner as a backup and alternative system for resilient coastal navigation.
