The INCASS (Inspection Capabilities for Enhanced Ship Safety) project brings together experienced partners to tackle the issue of ship inspection, providing access to information related to ship surveys independent of the ship flag state and inspection regime. Moreover, it incorporates enhanced and harmonized cooperation of maritime stakeholders targeting to avoid ship accidents, promote maritime safety and protect the environment. The INCASS consortium brings an innovative solution to the integration of monitoring, inspection, data gath-ering, risk analysis and management and Decision Support for ship structures, machinery and equipment in an efficient and collaborative manner. INCASS project introduces the enhanced inspection of ship structures employing robotic platforms, providing real time data, incorporating Structural and Machinery Risk Analysis (SRA and MRA), enhanced central database and Decision Support System for structures and machinery for continuous monitoring and risk analysis. This paper demonstrates the key features of INCASS project meth-odology as well as tools development.
