Since its founding in 1959, the 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 Cospas-Sarsat partners, have striven to improve maritime distress and safety radio and satellite communications, as well as general communications for operational and personal purposes. This paper also reviews the principal concept of the GMDSS network, an overview of existing LRIT and maritime Integrated Radio-Automatic Identification System (R-AIS) and Satellite-AIS (S-AIS) networks. In addition, new proposed by author networks of the Satellite Data Link (SDL), Maritime GNSS Augmentation Satellite Data Link (GASDL), Maritime Global Ship Tracking (GST), and Maritime Satellite Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (SADS-B) are also described in this paper.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.16.02.09}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Communication, International Maritime Organization (IMO), Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS), International Mobile Satellite Organization (IMSO), Maritime Global Ship Tracking (GST), Maritime GNSS Augmentation Satellite Data Link (GASDL), Satellite Data Link (SDL), Integrated Radio-Automatic Identification System (R-AIS)} }
