Abstract [en]

The complexity and diversification that characterise society of today arereflected both in socio-technological systems and labour organisations but also in the renewal of the language a profession uses. The transfer of knowledge, meaning and understanding through communication between people is not neutral and unproblematic.

In the Maritime Search and Rescue Service different professionals withdifferent norms, knowledge bases and use of technology have to communicate effectively in order to be able to carry out their duties in the best way possible. The Maritime Search and Rescue (sAR) undergo big changes and the activities make great demands on co-ordination, organisational as well as geographical. The development of ICT has lead to new technology and new organisational structures being established within the former organisation.

Information and communication technologies (ICT) are a condition for the inter- and intraprofessional communication in the modem Maritime Search and Rescue Service. Its participants are found in geographical separated pockets of local order, which together creates the virtual pocket of local order of Maritime Search and Rescue organisation. ICT makes it possible to coordinate all the activities that are needed to create an order (temporary pockets of local order) at SAR operations. Further, ICT create new and big potentials for learning. They are however not yet fully used, partly because the different actors during their everyday work at the same time handles both old and new ICT. Rules and laws restrict the cooperation between the different organisations in the same virtual and local pocket of local order but the cooperation is also restricted by how ICT is used in its socio-cultural context.
