Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co (DSME) has received approval in principle
from Lloyd’s Register (LR) 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 Digital SAFE descriptive note confirms that systems which are essential for ship operation,
and that have remote access to onboard operational data for analysis, decision-making and control,
have been assessed in accordance with LR’s Digital Ships ShipRight Procedure.
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.
DSME has focused its efforts on developing this fleet monitoring smart ECDIS and surveillance
system, working closely with MARINEWORKS Co – a market leading maritime navigational
equipment manufacturer – to enhance ship safety and mitigate the risk of introducing
vulnerabilities to cyber-attacks.
DSME Senior Executive Vice President Odin Kwon, commented: “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.”
MARINEWORKS President Yong-Dae Kim said: “MARINEWORKS is Korea’s leading company for
the digitisation of ship’s navigational systems, we have supplied over 400 Electronic Chart Display
and Information Systems (ECDIS) in the last five years. We are very pleased to be working with
DSME and Lloyd’s Register to receive AiP prior to installing this system on ships in the future.”
Jin-Tae Lee, Korea Chief Representative and Marine Manager for LR, said: “We have been
working closely with DSME to ensure that its Smart Ship Solution meets our digital ships
requirements. This pre-emptive solution will help ship owners and operators meet the digitalisation
challenges that the industry is currently facing. As more ships are becoming digitally-enabled, we
are very proud to present this AiP to DSME, confirming that the system has adequate cyber
resilience measures in place to protect against cyber incidents.”
