Diving with State Maritime Resources in The Baltic
The project attempts to prepare divers for cooperation across the Baltic Sea Region in the case of accidents. With coordination and common understanding of procedures, knowledge of general and specific diving competences and mapping of gaps, a solid and endurable search and rescue organization can be established in the Baltic Sea, making it a safer place to travel, live and work on.
Operational plans and procedures for maritime search and rescue in HNS incidents
100 – 200 incidents are reported involving commercial traffic but the number of near miss situations is many times higher. This, combined with the increasing amount of traffic in the Baltic Sea, the traffic intersecting at several nodes, difficult waters, and the harsh winter conditions in the northern Baltic Sea increase both the probability of a largescale maritime incident and the difficulty of conducting search and rescue operations.
Ranging Mode for the Baltic Sea
The project launches the development of a technical system that allows for safe ship navigation when the established Global Navigation Satellite Systems fail due to interference or jamming. The partners test broadcast signals transmitted via radio beacons and other existing infrastructure. This serves to develop prototypes for ranging mode transmitters and receivers. The Baltic Sea is the first operational test area for this technology worldwide.
