The MSRC Welcomes VIP Visitors27 March 2020
As previously announced, the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) wants to promote the implementation of the new S-100 standards to provide mariners with access to additional information and greater versatility in the display of these data. What better platform than the 2020 CHC Conference to present an update regarding this ground-breaking collaborative project? We also took this opportunity to invite various national and international experts to the MSRC’s facilities to witness firsthand how the new S-100 standards can greatly improve navigational safety for all seafarers across the globe.
