Unexplained collissions

Another unlucky event happened last week. A japanese warship collided with a fishing boat, east of Tokyo. The fishing boat was halved, and two fishermen are missing.

The warship is equiped with the latest ship detection technology. What was the problem then? a human error? we do not know wether both ships were equiped with AIS transponders.

But it stems from this piece of news, there is still a lot to do with regards to maritime traffic detection, and radar systems seem not to be enough.

Our best wishes for the search of survivors.
