SAILOR 6110 GMDSS System Technical Data

Marine Technics Group is the official distributor of Thrane & Thrane (COBHAM) in the Russian Federation.

Thrane & Thrane (COBHAM) equipment is always available for order from our offices in Saint-Petersburg and Baltic region as well as from our partners in Russian regions.

Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS)  is a communication system to enhance safety at sea. This global system comprises both radio and satellite-based technology carriers, and is currently mandatory for all vessels of over 300 GT and vessels otherwise included in SOLAS (the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea).

Overall satcom GMDSS service is operated by Inmarsat and overseen by IMSO, the International Mobile Satellite Organization and adheres to the IMO, the International Maritime Organization. The SAILOR 6110 is a GMDSS approved communication system designed for use with the Inmarsat C satellite network.

The Inmarsat C satellite network is the link between the SAILOR 6110 and the destination office. It uses four geostationary satellites to cover the world. For each satellite there is an NCS, Network Coordination Station, handling registration of the mobile unit (in this case the SAILOR 3027) in the Inmarsat C system.

Each NCS is associated with a number of LESs, Land Earth Stations, which handle the transmission between the mobile units and the destination office.

Example of SAILOR 6110 System configuration is shown on a figure below

The basic SAILOR 6110 System consists of the following units:

  • SAILOR 3027 GMDSS Terminal.
    Contains both transceiver, GPS receiver and omni-directional antenna for the Inmarsat C system as well as connects to other equipment, primarily the SAILOR 6006, through a CAN interface carrying both power and bi-directional communication.
  • SAILOR 6006 Message Terminal.
    Enables you to send and receive messages, monitor system status and test the system. The SAILOR 6006 has a touch-screen interface and comes with a SAILOR 6001 keyboard.
  • SAILOR 1252 Printer.
    Prints messages and reports from the SAILOR 6006.
  • SAILOR 6101/6103 Alarm Panel.
    Enables you to send Distress alerts. SAILOR 6101 connects to Inmarsat C. SAILOR 6103 connects to Inmarsat C, MF/HF or VHF.

The Ship Security Alert System provides ships with alarm buttons, which can be activated in case of a piracy or terrorist attack. The alarm is a covert signal that has no sound and no flashing lights, so it is not seen nor heard by any intruders on board the ship.

The SSA option consists of the THRANE 6194 Terminal Control Unit and three to six SSA alarm buttons and one test button. It connects to the SAILOR 6110 system through the CAN interface. The CAN interface also provides the power for the SSA option.
