The Baltic Sea Area is a globally unique and sensitive brackish-water ecosystem. More than 2,000 ships are on the way in the Baltic Sea Area on an average day. The Baltic Sea Area was designated as a Particularly Sensitive Sea Area (PSSA) at IMO Marine Environment Protection Committee's 53rd session in July 2005. Contemporary hierarchical maritime navigation safety management system from global to local level is considered as a basis for implementation of the System Theoretic Accident Model and Processes (STAMP) approach to architecting the maritime navigation safety control system. This paper introduces the STAMP-Mar research concept and application positions under development aimed at dynamic safety management of eco-socio-technical maritime navigation system that will network existing systems, systems already under development, and systems to be developed to meet the system safety requirements and to enable high levels of joint connectivity, situational awareness and understanding. Issue is exemplified by outlining the systems theoretic STAMP-Mar framework applied to safety management of maritime navigation in the Gulf of Finland (Baltic Sea). © 2016 IEEE.
