The prospect of Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS) crossing the ocean without a crew demands a new paradigm for thinking about safety.
The marine industry has traditionally relied on compliance with government regulation and the rules of “classification societies” to achieve the safe integration of structural, mechanical, electrical, and other physical aspects of their systems. CSL understands this way of thinking.
CSL also has experience addressing the new safety challenges associated with MASS, including advanced sensor technologies, AI/ML, and system interdependencies. Additionally, we understand the importance of analyzing safety risks associated with security vulnerabilities.
Drawing on parallel experiences and insights with the integration of complex “systems of systems” from other industries, such as autonomous cars and driverless trains, CSL can provide strategies for managing safety risks associated with MASS and other emergent technologies in the marine industry.
