Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 527)


For our purpose in this book we shall class the maritime surveillance systems into two categories; civilian surveillance systems and military systems. We shall call the former Vessel Traffic System (VTS) or more fully Vessel Traffic Management and Information Systems (VTMIS) [2.7]. The International Association of Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) promulgate guidance and assistance to Administrations and Authorities considering the implementation of a new VTS, or the upgrading of an existing one.
