The Ship Traffic Management System (STMS) project was proposed by the Norwegian Coastal Administration during the 5th Co-operation Forum (CF), under the Co-operative Mechanism on the Safety of Navigation and Environmental Protection in the Straits of Malacca and Singapore (“Co-operative Mechanism”) held in Singapore in September 2012.

 

The objective of the initiative was to optimise sea traffic flow in the approaches to and passage through the Straits of Malacca and Singapore (SOMS). The project is undertaken mainly between Norway and Singapore, with involvement from the HLAB members as a test-bed project to assess the effectiveness of such new traffic management strategies and communication protocol which would form one of the ship-shore components of e-navigation.
