Full Line Of GMDSS Products From Raytheon Marine —Literature Available—

Raytheon Marine Company and JRC have worked closely with ship owners, operators and crew to develop functional, easy to use, reliable products for Global Maritime D i s t r e s s and Safety System (GMDSS) carriage. Together these companies offer a single source for all GMDSS equipment to help ships meet GMDSS requirements.

These GMDSS products include MF/HF, and VHF radio, and Inmarsat equipment for voice and printed message communication, which can be operated by remote control from the ship's bridge. The key MF/HF radios from Raytheon are the JSS- 710 and 720 which provide ship-toshore communication by voice or telex using Digital Selective Calling (DSC) and Narrow Band Direct Printing (NBDP). The system features automated Maritime Safety Information Alerts, message calls by DSC, and printed messages in ARQ mode. These features allow routine operation and message transmission without the need for special training and skills. Onscene, ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore communication are provided by VHF-FM radiotelephones, the JHS- 31 with DSC, and the waterproof JHS-7 Portable VHF Radiotelephones.

The JRC Inmarsat Ship Earth Station (SES) satellite communication systems provide a high degree of reliability. The JUE series of SES have been installed on over onethird of all shipboard systems worldwide.

Other products, such as Navtex (model NCR-300A) and ECG Receivers and Decoders, provide Enhanced Group Call Maritime Safety Information messages such as weather warnings, SAR alerts, and other communication.

Raytheon is the exclusive distributor of JRC GMDSS products in North, Central and South America and Europe.
