The TRANSAS GMDSS SIMULATOR TGS 5000.171l is a software-based system that simulates the operation of various Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) equipment. The simulator is designed to train and examine ship specialists who work on obtaining a General Operator Certificate (GOC) or Restricted Operator Certificate (ROC), as well as to support Search and Rescue (SAR) operations and Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) operator training.

The simulator accurately imitates actual ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore communications using highly realistic simulated terrestrial and satellite communication systems. Trainees can familiarise themselves with the correct operation of a variety of GMDSS equipment, for both distress and general communication, as the software emulates recognised GMDSS equipment produced by S.P. Radio, Thrane&Thrane and other manufacturers.


The simulator also allows trainees to practice radio wave propagation using a radio ether model, which accounts for the frequency range, time of day and distance between stations. The simulator can simulate MF/HF/VHF communication in DSC, telephony, and telex modes, as well as satellite communication between workplaces (ships) and with coast radio stations for any shipping area. The simulator can also simulate maritime safety information transmission via SafetyNET, NAVTEX and HF NBDP services.

The TRANSAS GMDSS SIMULATOR TGS 5000.171l is compatible with the latest standards and requirements of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA). The simulator can be used for both classroom and distance learning, as well as for self-study. The simulator has a user-friendly interface and a comprehensive instructor station that allows easy monitoring, control and assessment of trainee performance.

The TRANSAS GMDSS SIMULATOR TGS 5000.171l is a product of Wärtsilä, a global leader in innovative technologies and lifecycle solutions for the marine and energy markets.
