This paper deals with a relatively new concept, namely, regional vessel traffic services (RVTS). A comprehensive program of experimental trials to determine the feasibility of a RVTS for the Mediterranean region, using a reduced but representative VTS system, is described. The work was carried out with the cooperation of Mediterranean countries under the auspices of the COST 301 project. Based on the results of the trials, the authors conclude that "a Mediterranean RVTS can be implemented by a stimulated growth of the existing resources in the Mediterranean basin, in terms of progressive, organizational and technological upgrades of the present non-organized system structure."
