Abstract:

The Coast Guard CG currently maintains 12 Navigational Telex NAVTEX broadcast transmitters. These transmitters are part of the International Maritime Organizations IMO Global Maritime Distress Safety System GMDSS and provide essential Marine Safety Information MSI to mariners. The CG Telecommunication and Information Systems Command TISCOM and Command, Control, and Communications Engineering Center C3CEN are working to improve the Coast Guards NAVTEX system by recapitalizing the NAVTEX transmitters with power levels optimized for the published coverage area. They also plan to add additional monitoring capability. In this report, RDC provides transmitter power recommendations along with candidate locations for NAVTEX monitoring sites.
