Promoting Maritime Safety Worldwide

The International Marine Electronics Alliance (IMEA) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining and improving maritime operations and safety through the use of electronics. The IMEA supports global efforts to establish, educate, install, operate, and maintain safe and reliable electronics aboard all vessels. IMEA is an Alliance not a member Association. IMEA will form worldwide alliances with other marine industry associations, marine standards bodies, and marine companies to collaborate on specific projects directly involved with marine electronics efforts to improve maritime safety through better marine electronics.

MISSION STATEMENT:

The International Marine Electronics Alliance (IMEA) focuses on maritime safety which encompasses scientific research education, and data interfaces. IMEA will serve as the NMEA technical interface with international standards bodies and organizations. IMEA will encourage the development of fair and uniform installation practices, and rules and regulations for the safety benefit of all stakeholders involved with marine electronics. IMEA is dedicated to serve the worldwide maritime industry by creating and promoting educational programming to improve the excellence of the marine electronics industry resulting in greater understanding and awareness of public safety for the boater.  IMEA collaborates with other nonprofit associations and governmental agencies to provide both operational and technical marine electronics education and validation of marine electronics performance through testing and development.  IMEA will be involved in pursuing the development and maintenance of NMEA Digital interfaces for the global marine electronics market.  This would include other conformity assessment bodies, commercial interests, governmental safety requirements, marine electronics manufacturers, integrators, dealers, installers, and end users.

IMEA SAFE Campaign

IMEA is concerned with the SAFE interconnection and interoperability of marine electronic equipment. A primary goal is facilitating the communications between various constituent groups and minimizing misunderstanding and confusion between manufacturers’ equipment. The IMEA SAFE Campaign below will better the overall enjoyment of the recreational boater, and further the safety of all commercial vessels and their mission of life at sea.
 
IMEA will perform the duties and responsibilities necessary for further development and advancement of NMEA 0183, NMEA 2000®, and IMEA OneNet®.  IMEA will encourage the development and standardization of fair and uniform practices, usages, rules and regulations for the safety benefit of all stakeholders involved with marine electronics.
 
IMEA collaborates with other nonprofit associations and governmental agencies to provide both operational and technical marine electronics education, advancement of marine technology, and validation of marine electronics performance through testing and development.
