New Aspects for Modernization Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS)
ABSTRACT: This paper describes the new aspects of modernization Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) proposing new developments and integrations of Radio and Satellite Communication, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS) and Global Ship Tracking (GST) systems in the function of enhanced Safety at Sea (SAS) and improved Search and Rescue (SAR) operations. To provide reliable tracking and detecting facilities of ships in distress have to be integrated the current Maritime Radio Communications (MRC) and Maritime Satellite Communications (MSC) systems with new Space Communication, Navigation and Surveillance Systems (CNS). The preliminary modernization aspects and plan for the GMDSS radio and satellite network are introduced in this paper. Based on the current state of the GMDSS and considerations on updating, upgrading and improving the system, some normative and technical aspects of the GMDSS modernization proposals are given. Further proposals on the GMDSS modernization plan were also considered.
