What is GMDSS and why is it important?




The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS)




GMDSS stands for Global Maritime Distress and Safety System, which is an international system that uses modern communication technologies to ensure the safety of life at sea. It was established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 1988, and became mandatory for all passenger ships and cargo ships over 300 gross tonnage in 1999.


GMDSS consists of several subsystems that provide different functions, such as:



  • Alerting: sending and receiving distress signals in case of emergency



  • Search and rescue coordination: locating and assisting vessels in distress



  • Maritime safety information: broadcasting weather forecasts, navigational warnings, and other safety-related information



  • General communications: facilitating routine communications between ships and shore stations



  • Bridge-to-bridge communications: enabling direct communication between ships in close proximity



GMDSS uses various types of radio equipment, such as:



  • VHF (Very High Frequency): for short-range communication within line-of-sight



  • MF/HF (Medium Frequency/High Frequency): for long-range communication beyond line-of-sight



  • Inmarsat-C: for satellite communication with shore stations



  • DSC (Digital Selective Calling): for automatic calling and alerting using digital signals



  • Radiotelex: for sending and receiving text messages over radio channels



  • NAVTEX: for receiving maritime safety information in text format



  • EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon): for transmitting distress signals with location information



  • SART (Search And Rescue Transponder): for indicating the position of a survival craft or a person in the water



The benefits and requirements of GMDSS




GMDSS has many benefits for enhancing the safety of life at sea, such as:



  • Improving the speed and reliability of distress alerting and response



Continuing the article:



  • Reducing the workload and stress of the radio operator



  • Increasing the coverage and availability of maritime safety information



  • Facilitating the coordination and cooperation among rescue services



  • Enhancing the efficiency and quality of general communications



However, GMDSS also has some requirements that need to be met by the ship owners, operators, and crew, such as:



  • Equipping the ship with the appropriate GMDSS equipment according to the sea area and the type of service



  • Maintaining the functionality and performance of the GMDSS equipment



  • Registering the ship and the GMDSS equipment with the relevant authorities



  • Keeping a radio log book and a GMDSS log book on board



  • Ensuring that at least one person on board holds a valid GOC or ROC for operating the GMDSS equipment

You can adjust various parameters, such as sound volume, language, time zone, units, etc. You can also customize the appearance and layout of the simulator interface, such as colors, fonts, icons, etc.



The creation and management of exercises and tests




To use TRANSAS GMDSS SIMULATOR TGS 5000.171 effectively, you need to create and manage exercises and tests for your trainees. An exercise is a simulation scenario that allows your trainees to practice their GMDSS operation and maintenance skills in a realistic environment. A test is a simulation scenario that allows you to assess your trainees' GMDSS operation and maintenance knowledge and competence in a controlled environment.


The creation and management of exercises and tests require the following steps:



  • Select an exercise or a test from the library or create a new one on the instructor station. The library contains a collection of predefined exercises and tests that cover various topics and levels of GMDSS operation and maintenance. You can also create a new exercise or test by using the editor tool. You can define various parameters, such as title, description, objectives, duration, equipment, conditions, events, etc.



  • Assign an exercise or a test to one or more trainee stations on the instructor station. You can select which trainee stations you want to assign an exercise or test to by using the selector tool. You can also group multiple trainee stations into a class or a team by using the group tool. You can assign different exercises or tests to different groups according to their needs and abilities.



Start an exercise or a test on the instructor station. You can start an exercise or test by clicking on the start button. You can also pause, resume, stop, or restart an exercise or test by using the control buttons. You can monitor Continuing the article:


  • Monitor and control an exercise or a test on the instructor station. You can monitor the progress and performance of each trainee station by using the monitor tool. You can see various information, such as time, location, equipment status, communication messages, etc. You can also control an exercise or test by using the control tool. You can change various parameters, such as conditions, events, interference, noise, etc. You can also communicate with each trainee station by using the communication tool. You can send and receive voice or text messages.



  • Complete an exercise or a test on the trainee station. You can complete an exercise or test by following the instructions and objectives given by the instructor or the simulator. You can operate and maintain various GMDSS equipment by using the simulator interface. You can see realistic representations of the equipment panels, buttons, displays, etc. You can also communicate with other trainee stations or the instructor station by using the communication equipment.



  • Evaluate and review an exercise or a test on the instructor station and the trainee station. You can evaluate and review an exercise or test by using the evaluation tool. You can see various statistics and reports on the performance and results of each trainee station. You can also see feedback and comments from the instructor or the simulator. You can also review an exercise or test by using the replay tool. You can replay the simulation scenario from different perspectives and angles.
