SHIP'S SPECIFICS RELATED TO THE OTHER INTELLIGENT TRANSPORT SYSTEMS IN CROATIAN TRANSITIONAL CONDITIONS

The goal of this paper is to present current intelligent maritime systems (ship) with their basic components and characteristics. These systems are very complex in order to fulfill strict safety, environmental protection, and commercial requirements. Intelligent ships must be fully automatic, fully integrated, and supported with computers for operation and maintenance. Stability must be calculated and controlled with adequate computer systems thus providing safety for all operational conditions. Satellite communication on such ships provides efficient connections for and fluent transmission of data and information. Satellite positioning systems also make navigation safe, precise, and reliable. Croatian shipyards are currently constructing such ships and the maritime Croatian educational system is providing training in the operation of such vessels to seamen and control personnel. Evaluating the Croatian geographic position, it is evident that shipping and naval architecture must be Croatia's major traffic orientation under current transitional conditions in order to make shipyards, ports, and shipping companies more active, functional and prosperous.
