eBNMs Now Available Nationwide

We at NAVCEN are thrilled to announce significant advancements in our ability to deliver Broadcast Notice to Mariners (BNMs) across all US waterways. This achievement is the culmination of years of effort, and we’re proud to relay that every single one of the USCG’s 37 Sectors and 9 Districts are now actively transmitting BNMs. As part of our commitment to harnessing technology for safer navigation, we have augmented the required VHF radio delivery method to providing real-time information directly to registered devices. This ensures that mariners and the public can access real-time safety data wherever they are, at the touch of a button. For those involved in route planning, we’ve also introduced an archive on the NAVCEN website containing all BNM data, making it even easier to check the status of navigable waterways before setting sail.  NAVCEN is dedicated to leveraging technology to bolster the safety and efficiency of our maritime community, and we invite you to explore these enhancements by visiting the Broadcast Notice to Mariners section on the Navigation Center website: Broadcast Notice to Mariners | Navigation Center (https://www.navcen.uscg.gov/).
