PA Safe has four major actions:


Action 1: Providing reliable navigational conditions to the Baltic Sea

Objectives: The aim of action 1 is to improve navigation safety in the Baltic Sea by providing more accurate bathymetry data, which can be used to create state-of-the-art nautical charts for E-navigation. In the future, this action will also focus on developing innovations based on such data as well as on training of the maritime personnel to use ECDIS equipment. Furthermore, this action will continue with development work of the backup systems for Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS).
