Abstract
"Phase I will define the requirements and architecture of a shipboard environmental compliance information and tracking system that is web-enabled and supported by a shore side website for information aggregation and dissemination based on extensive priorexperience with web and/or GIS-enabled technologies in an environmental analysis and documentation environment. The objective of this research project is to develop a software tool that will facilitate and enable the development and use of a functionalEnvironmental Management System (EMS) for the management and assessment of the operating ship environmental responsibilities. The intended result of the Integrated Ship Environmental Management System (IS-EMS) is to improve ship environmental performance,provide current and updated environmental requirements and regulations, Navy policy, crewmember responsibilities, and reporting features to streamline shipboard environmental workload. The maritime industry is required to implement Safety ManagementSystems by the International Safety Management Code. These systems must include pollution prevention management, and are very similar to EMS. The maritime industry could benefit from an EMS capability. A Navy generated IS-EMS system would have greatbenefit to the commercial fleets and an even greater benefit to the environments of the states and ports involved. The potential for future applications of the software/website concepts develo
