Paper describes model of the Integrated Vessel Traffic Control System realizing fusion of data received from shore based station of the Ship borne Automatic Identification System (AIS) and pulse and Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radars and presenting information on Electronic Navigational Chart. Additionally on the Observation Post is installed Multi Camera System consisting of daylight and thermal cameras showing automatically object tracked by radar or selected manually by operator. Model was designed, built and tested in the scope of research work financed by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education as developmental project No OR00002606 from the means for science in 2008-2010 years.
