ABSTRACT: This paper introduces software solutions for communication, equipment control, and management of oceangoing ships for enhanced Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) network and equipment. This software controls all maritime transmission systems and integrates communications software at level of server and workstations. Equipment control software is used to control and maintained locally or remotely transceivers, transmitters, receivers and other hardware. Special management software is included to process, analyze and exploit the various types of information generated by GMDSS networks and equipment. This papers are also includes the concept of software solutions on radio and satellite GMDSS ship terminals, on radio and satellite GMDSS coast terminals, and as well as in GMDSS Cospas-Sarsat ground terminals. In addition, the cybersecurity system in GMDSS security management is also described in this paper.
