Transas GMDSS simulators accurately imitate actual ship-to-ship communications and ship-to-shore stations using highly realistic simulated terrestrial and satellite communication systems. Trainees can be familiarised with the correct operation of a variety of GMDSS equipment for distress and general communication as the software emulates recognised GMDSS equipment produced by S.P. Radio, Thrane&Thrane and other manufacturers.
Precise Simulation of Real GMDSS Equipment
- Simulation of full set of SAILOR 6000 equipment
- It is possible to use four different types of GMDSS radio equipment, manufactured by S.P.Radio/ Thrane&Thrane: SAILOR 6000, SAILOR 5000, SAILOR System 4000 and SAILOR Compact 2000. In addition, the VHF&DSC FURUNO FM-8800S is included
- Jotron AIS SART as per IMO Resolution MSC. 256 (84) as an alternative to 9 GHz SART (from January 1st 2010)
- Simulation of Inmarsat Fleet77, Inmarsat FBB, AIS Class A and Glonass/GPS receiver.
- Each trainee workplace can be supplemented with a Transas compact console including the real control panels of SAILOR Program 6000 units.
- Simulation of MF/HF/VHF communication in DSC, telephony and telex modes, as well as satellite communication between workplaces (ships) and with coast radio stations for any shipping area;
- Simulation of maritime safety information transmission via SafetyNET, NAVTEX and HF NBDP services;
- Imitation of radio wave propagation using a radio ether model which accounts for the frequency range, time of day and distance between stations;
- Conducting SAR operations using a radar for detecting SART marks, allows for a prompt change of the ship’s course and speed;
- Electronic chart displaying the coast station bases, GMDSS sea areas, and SAR areas, as well as the capability to make a rough estimate of the radio waves propagation in the selected frequency band;
- Option to change from a networked operation to single-user mode to enable self-education in Demo, Test and Exam modes;
- Recording and playback of radiotelephone communications;
- Joint operation with navigational simulator.
