The importance of safe marine navigation equipment
on a ship cannot be overestimated. Effective determination of coordinates, course and collision avoidance is important not only for the ship's crew, but also for the global economy, because 80% of all cargo transportation in the world is carried out by sea. Therefore, uninterrupted radio communication is of paramount importance.
In the 70s of the XX century satellites of the international system "COSPAS/ SARSAT
" appeared on orbit - a space system for searching those in distress. The principle of operation of the system is in the direction finding of the emergency buoy by satellites, and then the information is transmitted to the centers of the search and rescue services.
In addition, the Global Automatic Identification System (AIS)
has been implemented by the International Maritime Organization (IMO)
and International Telecommunication Union (ITU). Such AIS systems are used on all ships that make international mandatory voyages, contributing to the safety and control of shipping worldwide.
Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS)
uses terrestrial and satellite communications technologies on board and ashore. In the event of an emergency situation or distress, the system transmits alerts directly to shore-based rescue services, as well as to ships close to that destination point to provide the necessary assistance.
