ABSTRACT: This article presents the principles of data transmission and processing in a module of duplex transmission of messages as required by ship reporting in the RIS (River Information Services) system. Technical specification of messages intended for ship commanders is analyzed. Data standards in harmonized River Information Services on inland waterways are presented. Furthermore, the analysis covers message structures, encrypting in XML format for electronic reporting by ships. Finally, the author evaluates the advantages of introducing the RIS system for the safety of inland vessel traffic and the effect of the system on environmental protection.
