Product Description

GMDSS Simulator is intended for primary education and training of General (GOC) and Restricted (ROC) GMDSS radio operators for mariners working in Sea Areas A1-A4, as for their professional training, according CEPT programs.

The simulator is designed in accordance with the new Amendments to STCW Code (Section BI/12 "GMDSS communication simulation"), and also allows training on “The use of reporting in accordance with the General Principles for Ship Reporting Systems and VTS procedures”.

List of basic knowledge and skills, worked out with the use of GMDSS simulator:

  • the basic concepts of the GMDSS;
  • the principles of the radio communication and alerting systems in GMDSS;
  • the basic opportunities of Maritime Mobile and Maritime Mobile-Satellite Services;
  • use of the GMDSS radio equipment and obligatory documents for realization of emergency radio communication procedures, reception of Maritime Safety Information (MSI) and general communication;
  • actions in the case of the false distress alert transmission.

Using GMDSS Simulator it is possible to get practical training in real radio traffic in the case of Distress or Emergency as well as for commercial communication.

GMDSS Simulator software consists of:

  • Instructor WorkPlace (station, used as server) and
  • Desired numbers of the Students’ WorkPlaces (up to 8) combined in a Windows local network. Students’ WorkPlaces can be equipped with PC with      “Touch-Screen” for radio equipment imitated in the simulator.

Functions

GMDSS Simulator provides the following modes:

  • Individual work on the Simulator without each other interference.
  • Individual work with software response for the calls;
  • Network communication with workstations

GMDSS Simulator imitates the following GMDSS communication systems:

  • Radiotelephony in VHF/MF/HF bands
  • Digital Selective Call (DSC) in VHF/MF/HF bands
  • Narrow Band Direct Printing (NBDP) in MF/HF band
  • Reception of the Maritime Safety Information via NAVTEX, SafetyNET and HF-NBDP
  • Satellite communication systems INMARSAT-C, FLEET-77, SARSAT
