Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has received approval in principle (AiP) from Lloyd’s Register for its Smart Ship Solution (DS4®).
The fleet monitoring smart ECDIS and surveillance system has been granted the descriptive note ‘Digital AL3 SAFE SECURITY’, confirming compliance with LR’s digital ships requirements.
The SECURITY descriptive note means that systems with digitally-enabled functions have adequate resilience measures in place to protect against cyber-attacks or other unauthorised access.
LR has defined five accessibility levels for digitally-enabled technology onboard ships, AL3 means the systems have digital access for autonomous/remote monitoring and control, but onboard permission is required and onboard override is possible.
“We are pleased to receive AiP from LR for our fleet monitoring smart ECDIS and surveillance system. We look forward to installing the system onboard several ultra large container ships that are currently under construction. We will keep enhancing our Smart Ship Solution to reflect market demands,” Odin Kwon, DSME Senior Executive Vice President, said.
