Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS)

Long a leader in radar simulation, Buffalo Computer Graphics (BCG) also offers a Virtual GMDSS Trainer (see screen shot below) and a realistic GMDSS Training System (see bottom image).

The BCG approach uses computer stimulated Real or Virtual radio panels along with actual INMARSAT terminals, Telex terminals and Navtex receivers. The system provides the user with all the essential elements necessary for training the complexities of GMDSS. This GMDSS Trainer utilizes Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) technology, and no RF emissions! BCG's GMDSS Training System is designed to be compliant with existing performance standards of the international maritime authorities.
