SESAME Straits

Contributor: Marius Imset

Purpose and objectives:

The SESAME Straits project (Secure, Efficient, and Safe maritime traffic Management in the Straits of Malacca and Singapore) aims to utilize the IMO e-Navigation concept in order to reduce the problem of traffic hot-spots.

SESAME Straits will make it possible to predict possible vessel traffic hot-spots in congested waterways and offers new strategies to avoid such congestions. This will improve the safety of vessel traffic and enable "Just-in-time" arrival of vessels, improving the efficiency of existing infrastructure, and reducing the environmental footprint.
