Since its foundiing in 1959, International Maritime Organization (IMO) and its member states, in close co-operation with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and other international organizations, notably the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO), the International Mobile Satellite Organization (IMSO) and the Cospas-Sarsat partners, have striven to improve maritime distress and safety radiocommunications, as well as general radiocommunications for operational and personal purposes. This paper also reviews concept of the GMDSS network, an overview of new propsed by author maritime VHF Data Link (VDL), maritime Radio Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (RADS-B), an maritime GNSS Augmentation VDL-Broadcast (GAVDL-B). In addition, the type of the current radio Maritime VHF Data Exchange System (VDES), Maritime MF-band Navigational Telex (NAVTEX), and Maritime MF/HF-band Navigation Data (NAVDAT) are also described in this paper.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.16.02.08}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Communication, International Maritime Organization (IMO), Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS), VHF Data Exchange System (VDES), International Mobile Satellite Organization (IMSO), VHF Data Link (VDL), MF/HF-Band Navigation Data (NAVDAT), Radio Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (RADS-B)} }
