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.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.14.04.26}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS), Safety at Sea, Maritime Satellite Communications (MSC), Maritime Radio Communications (MRC), Global Ship Tracking (GST), Communication, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS), GMDSS Modernization, Modernization Plan for the GMDSS} }
