Supporting you now and into the future

Digitalisation and decarbonisation are transforming the global shipping industry.

The adoption of digital technologies and improved satellite connectivity is transforming the way the shipping industry operates – dramatically improving the way data is shared from shore to ship.

With more dynamic data delivery in future, seafarers will be able to optimise their passage planning, voyages and port calls, helping to minimise costs and fuel consumption. And with more efficient voyages, together we can reduce our impact on the marine environment and help meet the industry’s shared decarbonisation goals.

The next generation of navigation


As digitalisation continues to transform the maritime industry, we recognise the requirement to evolve our ADMIRALTY portfolio to meet the changing needs of mariners.

To help shape the navigational solutions of tomorrow, our experts at the UK Hydrographic Office are working closely with partners across the industry to develop, test and implement a new set of technical standards: the IHO S-100 data framework.

Developed by the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO), S-100 will be the standard for data exchange in the maritime industry. It provides a shared format for new maritime data products, enabling a greater breadth of data to be integrated into a single view. When combined, this provides a more comprehensive picture of the marine environment and even greater insight for users.
