Maritime Information Technology Standards - MITS

We have been collecting information about maritime ITS standards for several years and this is available at the MITS Forum web pages. This has not been updated much since 2015 so some of the information is a bit outdated, but it still contains many historical references that can be of interest.

We plan to update and/or update the information over the coming years, so stay tuned.
