A Brief History 1 The first radar based Port Control station was established in Douglas, Isle of Man, in 1948. Later the same year, the port of Liverpool established a radar site and similar trials took place in Rotterdam. In 1950, a number of shore-based radar chains were established in other European ports, including the approaches to the port of Amsterdam in 1952 and the entire Rotterdam port area in 1956. 3 © Leonardo - Società per azioni Company General Use
The idea of a Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) system comes by VTS - Summarising evidence of needs of safety and efficiency for vessels in port areas and their approaches, that traditional lighthouses and sound signals cannot guarantee • Safety: reduce number of shipping accidents in port’s approaches/areas • Efficiency: increase traffic flows per time unit, avoid traffic delays, provide better port’s capacity utilization (increasing port’s operational hours) Early VTS systems were composed by just a primary RADAR and a VHF radio, by the meanings of communication among ships/base stations 4 © Leonardo - Società per azioni Company General Use
