A joint research agreement has been signed between DSME and HLS for the development and demonstration of smart ship technology. Both companies will establish remote monitoring services, conduct test operations, analyze ship operation data for the verification of smart ship platforms and solutions.
On December 2, HLS signed a memorandum of understanding with Korean Register (KR), a classification society offering verification and certification services for ships, to jointly verify cybersecurity solutions applicable to new ships, develop risk analysis and design safety evaluations for cybersecurity systems.
The demand for cybersecurity protection has grown because of the rapid convergence of operational information and communication technologies. In July, DSME earned high-level smart-ship cybersecurity certification from Lloyd's Register, a London-based organization. Cybersecurity technology is designed to protect data and software from outside threats.
Smart ships are expected to revolutionize the landscape of ship design and operations as they can minimize human errors that caused about 70 to 80 percent of marine accidents. South Korean shipbuilders work hard to develop smart ship technologies as tightened international regulations will increase the preference for digital total solutions that support efficient navigation systems.
Samsung Heavy Industries partnered with DNV GL, an international accredited registrar and classification society headquartered in Norway, to develop smart ship technology. The shipbuilder has used a 5G-based test ship to verify technology for autonomous sailing.
