Radio Equipment

The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) is an internationally agree-upon set of safety procedures, types of equipment, and communication protocols used to increase safety and make it easier to rescue distressed ships.

GMDSS consists of several systems, some of which are new, but many have been in operation for many years. The system is intended to perform the following functions: alerting (including position determination of the unit in distress), search and rescue coordination, locating (homing), maritime safety information broadcasts, general communications, and bridge-to-bridge communications. Specific radio carriage requirements depend upon the ship's area of operation, rather than its tonnage.

They system also provides redundant means of distress alerting, and emergency sources of power.
