IMO970E- GMDSS Manual – 2019 Edition

$357.00 GST

Since its establishment in 1959, the International Maritime Organization and its Member Governments, in close co-operation with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and with other international organizations, notably the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) and the International Mobile Satellite Organization (Inmarsat), and with the COSPAS–SARSAT partners, have striven to improve maritime distress and safety radiocommunications.

The culmination of this work was the entry into force and implementation of the global maritime distress and safety system (GMDSS) in February 1999.

The intent of this Manual is to provide in a single comprehensive publication an explanation of the principles upon which the GMDSS is based, the radiocommunication requirements and recommendations for its implementation, the operational performance standards and technical specifications to be met by GMDSS equipment, and the procedures for and method of operation of the various radio services which form the GMDSS and the Master Plan for the GMDSS. Regulations cited in the text are taken from the 1988 (GMDSS) amendments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, as amended.
