The article presents a concept of an integrated navigational decision support system for vessel traffic control. The system is based on a joint platform for decision support systems on land and ships. The platform construction is recommended to be based on the shipboard navigational decision support system. The necessary scope of work to build such system is defined. The proposed integrated decision support system NAVDEC fits such concepts as e-navigation, e-maritime and intelligent marine transport systems that reflect global trends in the development of navigational systems, widely using modern information communication technologies.
