Yannis Papaefthimiou, Managing Director, FURUNO gave a presentation on the ‘’ECDIS use in the modern era’’ during the 2016 SMART4SEA Forum.

He noted that ECDIS is a milestone marking the industry’s transition from paper to digital navigation; 58% of the world’s fleet is now using ECDIS showing that the industry is on track for adoption in the end of the decade.
