The actions to promote primarily maritime traffic safety in the River Scheldt and its approaches, and to facilitate a quick turn-round of shipping are summarized. Within this context the Scheldt Information Service--S.I.S.-- acts as a programming and as a controlling organization. The main elements of this service and developments from its inception up to the present are reviewed and future plans for extension into a complete radar system are described. This system will include semi-automatic processing and presentation of data derived from the radar, in order to provide radar observers, pilotage offices and other interested parties with better information on ship movements in the whole area.
