Short summary
Maritime study sites utilized as a physical experimental test bed for sensor data fusion, communication technology and data stream analysis tools can provide substantial frameworks for design and development of e-navigation technologies. Increasing safety by observation and monitoring of the maritime environment with new technologies meets forward-looking needs to facilitate situational awareness. The study highlights research potentials and foundations achieved by distributed optical sensors.
