(Excludes any applicable taxes)

In recent years the marine transportation system has come under increasing attention. Among the concerns are its safety and efficiency, prevention of and response to ship-caused pollution, and the use of vessels for inimical purposes, ranging from simple lawbreaking (such as smuggling) to serving as a vehicle or target for terrorist acts. 2.2mb

Over the past two decades, automatic identification systems (AIS) have been developed in response to these concerns and much work has been done to define AIS technical and communication requirements. These efforts have resulted in worldwide mandatory carriage requirements for AIS aboard vessels that must comply with the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).


AIS information can be presented to mariners in many different ways—visually, aurally, haptically (i.e., through touch), and redundantly, for instance. The process includes research, requirements development, analysis, design, and implementation elements. It is intended to assist regulators with domestic and international carriage requirement responsibilities and members of the international community faced with global mandates for shipboard display of AIS information.


The process of planning and controlling cargo operations is addressed with special reference to the derivation of the loading and unloading plans and the requirements for ship/shore communication.


A review of the potential problems that could be encountered during cargo operations is presented. Guidance is given on the measures that should be taken to monitor and control cargo and ballasting operations in order to reduce the possibility of over-stressing the ship's structure. 2.2mb
