Navigation support systems are part of modern maritime transportation chain where larger and larger vessels are handled in ports. Support systems for sea navigation must meet certain criteria for access, integrity, accuracy and other factors. Modelling of safety criteria for technical creation of support systems like PNS (Pilot Navigation System) or LDS (Laser Docking System) consists of several stages both conceptual, and real time experimental. Even basic systems must be designed and developed in manner where assumed safety factors are met.
