Shipping and Navigation

Survey theme: Shipping and Navigation

Marine traffic surveys and navigational risk assessments


The UK is surrounded by some of the busiest shipping channels in the world. Understanding where these are and how any new projects may impact existing marine traffic routes is extremely important.

In addition to shippping and recreational boating, offshore wind farms may also need to understand the potential impact on radar systems, which rely on moving target indicator filters, for example those used in air traffic control and air defence.
