IoS-OP is a distribution platform which realizes data distribution in the maritime industry, creates a new maritime cluster in the digital age that will continue through future generations, divides work roles including data creation, sending/receiving of data, storage etc. from upstream to downstream, and invites each company to freely participate in their specialized area. In order to provide service to its members under everlasting, orderly regulations/agreements, IoS-OP must promote fair, reliable, and independent activities. Accordingly, ShipDC has established the IoS-OP Consortium consisting of member companies and will continue to carry out various activities such as working groups (WG).


Organization & Activities

There is the general meeting which all members participate in, the steering committee which consists of main members, a sub-committee, and the working groups (WG) that carry out actual discussions, debates, tests, case studies and more under the direction of the sub-committee. Members can not only propose their suggestions and thoughts on the management of IoS-OP, but also participate in ShipDC meetings/events, be active WG members, use testbed service, and develop their business in many ways with ShipDC.



Testbed Service

Service contents

This is a shore based service which provides some equipment such as shipboard data collection and data transmission to shore via satellite communication, and you can simulate tests such as shipboard data collection, transmission, and acquisition as onboard. Members of IoS-OP Consortium are free to use these environments!

Scenario to use

Facilities and communication costs are free of charge. In addition, since the ISO 19847-compliant servers from several manufacturers are provided, various test can be carried out such as the evaluation of conformity to ISO standards of existing systems and services, examination of new services, trial of the high speed satellite communication service, and pre-test before the actual shipboard test. It is also available as a demonstration environment for new products and services:

  1. Examination of engine preventive maintenance service by remote monitoring of engine data
  2. Examination of new maintenance service by remote monitoring of machinery operation data
  3. Investigation of various analysis and new analysis services that utilize ShipDC’s ship IoT data
  4. Trial of ship-to-shore data communication with your own system using actual satellite communication
  5. Functional verification of shipboard data server and shipboard application

Contact IoS-OP Consortium Secretariat at first. We will arrange necessary preparations according to your test scenario after interviewing the purpose of use. If a setting change or software modification is needed, we may make a separate consultation with actual expense based on man-hours.
