We look at AMSA’s work to ensure emerging autonomous and remotely controlled vessels in Australia can operate safely. We also feature Paradigm Training’s use of technology in training and assessment; talk to Steber International about their evolution over the years; and follow the build, delivery and maiden voyage of three new transfer vessels commissioned to boost tourism to Norfolk Island.
