Mariners’ Workshop 20203 February 2020
On Thursday, January 30th, CLSLP pilot Captain Pascal Rhéaume and CHS representative Jonathan Morin presented a summary and progress report of the new S-102 standards project at the 2020 Mariners’ Workshop.
As previously announced on November 5, the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) wishes to promote the implementation of the new S-100 standards to provide mariners with access to additional information (bathymetry, surface currents and water levels) and greater versatility in the display of these data. The project is being carried out in a joint effort with the collaboration of WSP, the Corporation of Lower St. Lawrence Pilots, the Maritime Simulation and Resource Centre and navigation software provider Sakhalin (SEAiq Pilot).
“I think the maritime community was pleasantly surprised with the very promising sea trial results using this ground-breaking data. Once implemented throughout the world, the level of navigational accuracy and safety will increase exponentially,” declared Captain Rhéaume after the presentation.
