The safety of ship and navigation, as well as of all sea coastal activities, mainly depends on the accuracy and reliability of the information about the sea state conditions. Measurements are fundamental to effectively support decisions and their quality reduces the decisional risk. In this respect, measurement obtained from onboard GNSS systems, inertial devices or gyroscopes, as well as from SAR or optical images and ground-based devices, could be useful to improve the safety of navigation and coast environments and detect in almost real-time the main sea state parameters. The session focuses on recent developments in the field of measurement systems and techniques to deliver more accurate information about the surveyed environment.
The aim of the Special Issue "Marine Installations and Constructions" is to publish high-quality papers, which ought to offer original ideas and new methodologies, with clear indication of the innovations with respect to existing solutions.

Antonio Angrisano is Assistant Professor (RTDb) at the Department of Engineering of the University of Messina and member of the PArthenope Navigation Group (PANG) Laboratory. He previously worked as junior researcher (RTDa) at the University of Benevento “Giustino Fortunato”. Heobtained his MSc degree (Cum Laude) in Science o Navigation from Faculty of Sciences and Technologies at Parthenope University of Naples (2006). After the degree he has collaborated with the Science Applied Department of Parthenope, researching on QZSS system and geosynchronous constellations (2007). Since January 2008 to December 2010 he has been a PhD student in Geodetic and Topographic Sciences at Parthenope University, working on GNSS and Inertial Navigation; during his doctoral studies he has been a visiting PhD student at University of Calgary PLAN Group (Position Location and Navigation), researching on GNSS/INS Integrated Navigation. On April 2011 he successfully defended his PhD dissertation entitled: GNSS/INS Integration Methods. He is currently a Post-Doc at Parthenope University and his main research interests include GNSS and Augmentation Systems, Inertial and Integrated Navigation, RAIM and Integrity.
Silvio Del Pizzo is Assistant Professor (RTDb) at the Department of Science and Technology of the University of Naples "Parthenope" in Celestial Navigation and member of the PArthenope Navigation Group (PANG) Laboratory. On May 2013 he obtained the PhD in Geodetic and Topographic Science at University of Naples Parthenope. His research activities are focused on the geomatic field and specifically the main interests are Camera sensors, photogrammetry, computer vision and remote sensing applied to the navigation, GNSS positioning and integration algorithms. From August 2013 he worked as postdoctoral researcher in several projects of University of Naples “Parthenope” with Navigation, Positioning and Remote Sensing as main topic. He is the author of 30 publications on journals and international conferences.
Vincenzo Piscopo is Associate Professor at the Department of Science and Technology of the University of Naples "Parthenope" and member of the PArthenope Navigation Group (PANG) Laboratory. From December 2017 to December 2020 he worked as Assistant Professor (RTDb) at the same University, where he also was junior researcher from January 2016 to December 2017 and postdoctoral researcher from October 2012 to April 2015. At the end of December 2009, he obtained the Ph.D. in Aerospace, Naval and Quality Engineering at the University of Naples "Federico II", where he earned cum laude the Master and Bachelor Degrees in Naval Engineering in July 2006 and July 2004, respectively. His research activity involves ships and marine structures, with particular reference to non-uniform torsion, buckling and ultimate strength analysis of platings affected by pitting corrosion wastage, mooring design and optimization, dynamics of offshore structures and design of wave energy converters. He is the author of more than 50 publications on journals and international conferences.
