COASTAL SERVICESThe ship hits the rocks, an environment disaster. The two vessels on collision courses suddenly find themselves in a horrible situation, risking lives, assets and environment. The fishing vessel capsizes, due to leakage or over-load from good fishing. Where do they turn for assistance? To avoid such incidents, ship traffic should be monitored, vessels being notified and when the accident is a reality, an effective search and rescue operation been executed. With Coastal Services, maritime traffic is monitored by AIS, Radar (and CCTV), (Vessel Traffic Management Services), communication and assistance secured by GMDSS compliant Coast Radio Station and Search and Rescue handled by the Rescue Coordination Centre. Arlo Maritime offers governments and stakeholders to implement Coastal Services for their coastal areas and near-by waters.

GMDSS COAST RADIO CRS The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) is the international radio safety system authorized by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for ships at sea. The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) uses terrestrial and satellite technology and ship-board radio systems to ensure rapid, automated alerting of shore-based communication and rescue authorities in the event of an incident at sea. Ships engaged on international voyages must be equipped with radio equipment that conforms to international standards as set out in the system. Search and rescue (SAR) authorities ashore and shipping in the immediate vicinity of the ship in distress, are rapidly alerted through satellite and terrestrial communications so that they can assist in a co-ordinated rescue operation with the minimum of delay. GMDSS defines four sea areas based upon the location and capability of onshore-based communication facilities. The definition of the Sea Areas for GMDSS is outlined below. Sea Area A1Covered by VHF coast stations in which continuous alerting by Digital Selective Calling (DSC) is available. Sea Area A2Covered by MF coast stations in which continuous alerting by Digital Selective Calling is available. Sea Area A3The coverage of Inmarsat geostationary satellites and HF Coast Radio Stations. Sea Area A4Area outside A1, A2 and…
VHF Coast RadioMarine VHF radio uses the radio frequency range between 156.0 and 162.025 MHz, called the VHF maritime mobile band. A VHF station consists of operator site, transmitter/receiver site, Antenna sites and connection between the various sites. A marine VHF set is a combined transmitter and receiver (transceiver) and operates on standard, international frequencies known as channels. Channel 16 (156.8 MHz) is the international calling and distress channel. VHF Coast Radio Stations require “Digital Selective Calling” (DSC) capability, to receive and relay e.g. distress signals. Transmission power between up to 75 watts, give a maximum range of about 40 nautical miles (75 km) with aerials mounted on hills. Frequency modulation (FM) is used, with vertical polarization, meaning that antennas have to be vertical in order to have good reception.

MF/HF Coast StationAn MF/HF Coast radio is built with an operator position, a transmitter site and a receiver site. The reason for parting transmitter and receiver on separate sites and antennas, is to avoid the transmitter signal to block the receiver signal. The longer distance between the two sites, the better. The communication between the operator and the transmitter/receiver sites are mainly by telephone cable (fibre optic) or microwave link. Connection between transmitter/receiver and antennas are coax cables. MF/HF radios integrate an MF/HF DSC Controller. The DSC functions via the DSC Controller or Modem, which simply sends a burst of digital code on the MF/HF DSC frequencies, and will automatically “call” another MF/HF radio. This is feasible because each MF/HF DSC Controller has been allocated a unique MMSI number that acts like a telephone number.CONTAINS OFTransmitter Receiver DSC Modem Transmitter Antennas Receiver Antenna Operator Control Unit Software Fundaments and infrastructureIncludes Measurements Documentation Training Support Extended Warranty CONTACT US FOR ANY INQUIRIES
NAVTEX, (NAVigational TEXt) is the primary method of disseminating Marine Safety Information (MSI) out to 270 miles and is part of the integrated Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS). NAVTEX is obligatory for Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) convention vessels. It may also be installed on other, none-convention vessels.CONTAINS OFTransmitter ATU (Antenna Tuning Unit) Antenna Antenna Coil Operator Control Unit Software Fundaments and infrastructure Power Supply (Solar, Wind, Diesel, Local) Cables LANINCLUDESTraining Extended Warranty Measurements Documentation Support
Vessel Traffic Services
VTS – VESSEL TRAFFIC SERVICESVessel traffic services – VTS – are shore-side systems for extensive management of traffic within ports, waterways or coastal areas. Generally, ships entering a VTS area report to the authorities, usually by radio, and is tracked by a VTS control centre. Vessels Traffic Management Systems are making valuable contribution to safer navigation, more efficient traffic flow, and protection of the environment. Incidents and emergency situ-ations can be dealt with quickly. Data from traffic movements can be stored and used as reference information for port administration, port authorities, coastguards and search and rescue services. The VTMS traffic image is compiled and collected by means of advanced sensors such as ra-dar, AIS, direction finding, CCTV and VHF or other co-operative systems and services. A modern VTMS integrates all of the information into a single operator working environment for ease of use and in order to allow for effective traffic organization and communication.

Search and Rescue
SEARCH AND RESCUE – SARSearch and rescue (SAR) is the search for and provision of aid to people who are in distress or imminent danger. The general field of search and rescue includes many specialty sub-fields, typically determined by the type of terrain the search is conducted over. These include mountain rescue; ground search and rescue, including the use of search and rescue dogs; urban search and rescue in cities; combat search and rescue on the battlefield and air-sea rescue over water. These services are performed through a cooperative effort involving government agencies, voluntary organizations and private enterprises. The SAR RCC (Rescue Coordination Centre) should have state-of-the-art electronic equip-ment, including access to VTMS (if present), CRS (Maritime Communication), up-to-date in-formation retrieval through internet and other sources, updated maps and charts, and ac-cess to existing resources present in their Search and Rescue Areas.
