    The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) is an international system which uses terrestrial and satellite technology and ship-board radio-systems to ensure rapid, automated, alerting of shore based communication and rescue authorities, in addition to ships in the immediate vicinity, in the event of a marine distress.   Title: Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) 1 Global Maritime Distressand Safety System(GMDSS) 2 Basic Concept of the GMDSS. The fundamental difference between the old and the new distress system is that the new system is shore centred/coordinated and moves emphasis from ship to ship alerting to ship to shore alerting.

      GMDSS is now an international system which uses land-based and satellite technology, aiming to ensure rapid, automated, alerting of shore based communication and rescue authorities, in addition to ships in the immediate vicinity, in the event of a marine distress.   It is worth mentioning that for approximately 90 years, the emphasis on vessels in distress was to contact nearby ships for assistance. Between and , a new system of communications was introduced; this is called the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System .

    Inter-ship safety communications only. 9. Commercial and non-commercial inter-ship, ship to coast and alternate calling channel. Ocean-going vessels, bridge tenders, tugs while towing, locks. Distress safety and calling, call Coast Guard, establish general contact. , Public telephone calls (to call the marine operator) 68, Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) has been developed by the maritime nations in the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and is the result of their adoption of amendments made in to the International Convention on the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS). Based on recent developments in maritime communications, such.

The Coverages of the MF and VHF Maritime Distress Communication Systems W.A. Kissick u.s. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE 'Philip M. Klutznick, Secretary Henry Geller, Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information October Unquestionably, the marine VHF is the workhorse of marine communications.

Typical uses of the VHF range from distress and safety communications, marine navigation advisories, current and forecast weather reports, contacting other vessels, connecting into the phone system for phone calls thorough a marine operator, right down to getting a slip.

When the situation allows, the use of both DSC and voice communications in combination is the preferred method and will probably result in a faster response. Distress, Safety and Hailing Frequencies.

The following MF & HF marine radio frequencies have been set aside by the ITU as distress, safety, and hailing frequencies.

The basis on a fundamental concept, the main functions and the international requirements the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) have been presented. The SAILOR MF/HF range of maritime radios from Cobham provide seafarers with the perfect solution for long range communication and emergency distress calling.

Engineered to withstand the harshest of marine environments, the robust systems feature a clear screen and large buttons for. Urgent marine navigational and weather information is broadcast over VHF channel 22A ( MHZ) from over sites covering the coastal areas of the U.S., including the Great Lakes, major inland waterways, Puerto Rico, Alaska, Hawaii and Guam.

Broadcasts are first announced over the distress, safety and calling channel 16 before they are made. [tabs] About The GMDSS is an internationally recognized distress and radio communication safety system for ships replacing the previous ship to ship safety system, which relied on a manual Morse code system on kHz and voice radiotelephony on Channel 16 and kHz.

The GMDSS is an automated ship to shore system using satellites and digital selective calling technology. Very High Frequency (VHF) Radios Very High Frequency (VHF) radios have been around for many years and remain the primary means of communication for vessels throughout the United States.

The main uses of a VHF radio are: Distress calling and safety; Ship to shore communications; Navigation (vessels to bridges, etc.) Marine operator to place. The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) is an internationally agreed-upon set of safety procedures, types of equipment, and communication protocols used to increase safety and make it easier to rescue distressed ships, boats and aircraft.

GMDSS consists of several systems, some of which are new, but many of which have been in operation for many years. Such communication was held by means of on board systems through the shore stations and satellites.

Thus ship-to-ship communication was carried by VHF radio, and then DSC appeared. It could provide digitally remote control commands to receive and transmit distress signals, urgent. with the global maritime distress and safety system (GMDSS) required by the International Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) convention, to which New Zealand has been party since Requirements for smaller ships are appropriate for the radio coverage within their restricted operating areas.

Routine daily MF-HF and Inmarsat-C transmissions do not have to be logged. INTERNATIONAL VHF MARINE RADIO CHANNELS AND FREQUENCIES.

The following table is adapted from the International Telecommunications Union Radio Regulations Appen including changes adopted by the World Radio ission on frequencies or channels shown in blue are not allowed within U.S.

territorial waters, but are allowed on the high seas and in most. Due to the limited range of each of the radio communication systems, several operation and cover areas have been defined: A1- Zone near the coast with VHF-DSC coverage (approx.

miles). A2- Navigation zone with MF-DSC coverage, excluding zone A1 (approx. miles).

It is a core part of the Global Maritime Distress Safety System (GMDSS). The radio coverage for two maritime distress communication systems are calculated for those U.S.

Coast Guard stations in the contiguous United States. The two systems are the international MF distress channel and the international VHF distress channel. The predicted coverage for each station is shown as a contour drawn on a map background.

According to GMDSS, every ship needs to be equipped with satellite emergency position-indicating radio beacons and NAVTEX receivers, so that ship safety information are received automatically.Digital Selective Calling (DSC) - A paging system that uses data signals to automate the transmission of distress, urgency or safety calls via MF, HF or VHF radio.

As outlined in Sectionthe ITU has allocated a speci c frequency in the MF, each of the HF and the VHF marine bands for distress and safety tra c via each of these three modes.
