Maritime Communications in RIS System for Inland Navigation
1 Maritime University of Szczecin, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: The article presents the VHF communications system architecture for inland navigation within the area of operation of the RIS-PL Centre. The author has described the communication system modules used in the RIS on the Lower Oder stretch and presented the relevant equipment specification. The present condition of the system has been described, taking into consideration the location of its components, both in the field and in the environment, of key importance for VHF communication. The feasibility of implementation of GMDSS subsystems for integrated navigational data transmission in maritime and inland navigation at the RIS-PL Centre has been discussed.
