Implementation of the Multifunctional Communication System for RIS Center Supporting Inland Navigation
ABSTRACT: The article presents the feasibility of implementation integrated digital and analog radio-communications systems in maritime and inland navigation at the RIS Center. Structure of the date transmission in the RIS system was characterized. Integration of the Iridium Satellite System into a Multifunctional Communication System for the RIS Centre was presented. The integrating DSC VHF and DSC MF GMDSS subsystems with Multifunctional Communication System was presented. The possibilities of integrating The LT- 3100S Lars Thrane module for Multifunctional Communication System. was presented. The architecture of Multifunctional Communication Systems implementing distress communication procedures in cooperation between RIS Center and Search and Rescue Centers was presented.
