Aim is to support both main research areas by underlying developments for data acquisition, data processing, and data provision. An essential component in this context is our self-developed real-time framework with its capability to develop and evaluate algorithm and processors under real-time conditions. The increasing complexity of used data sources as well as increased requirements on functionality of PNT and TSA software solutions results into the necessity to enhance the framework (e. g data synchronization, time control, configuration of complex systems, automated quality monitoring) to meet the evolving usage requirements furthermore too. The further extension of the maritime data server is an intrinsic task serving the acquisition and provision of additional test data, the realization of measuring campaigns, the establishment of new communication means, up to optimized data management. Initial developments of a maritime sensor simulation system are aimed to enable in the future that also complex error scenarios can be considered during evaluation of methods and functions.
