Wärtsilä GMDSS Simulator TGS 5000

  • Transas GMDSS simulators accurately imitate actual ship-to-ship communications and ship-to-shore stations using highly realistic simulated terrestrial and satellite communication systems. Trainees can be familiarised with the correct operation of a variety of GMDSS equipment for distress and general communication as the software emulates recognised GMDSS equipment produced by S.P. Radio, Thrane&Thrane and other manufacturers.

    Precise Simulation of Real GMDSS Equipment
  • Simulation of full set of SAILOR 6000 equipment
  • It is possible to use four different types of GMDSS radio equipment, manufactured by S.P.Radio/ Thrane&Thrane: SAILOR 6000, SAILOR 5000, SAILOR System 4000 and SAILOR Compact 2000. In addition, the VHF&DSC FURUNO FM-8800S is included
  • Jotron AIS SART as per IMO Resolution MSC. 256 (84) as an alternative to 9 GHz SART (from January 1st 2010)
  • Simulation of Inmarsat Fleet77, Inmarsat FBB, AIS Class A and Glonass/GPS receiver.
  • Each trainee workplace can be supplemented with a Transas compact console including the real control panels of SAILOR Program 6000 units.


    • Simulation of 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;
    • Simulation of maritime safety information transmission via SafetyNET, NAVTEX and HF NBDP services;
    • Imitation of radio wave propagation using a radio ether model which accounts for the frequency range, time of day and distance between stations;
    • Conducting SAR operations using a radar for detecting SART marks, allows for a prompt change of the ship’s course and speed;
    • Electronic chart displaying the coast station bases, GMDSS sea areas, and SAR areas, as well as the capability to make a rough estimate of the radio waves propagation in the selected frequency band;
    • Option to change from a networked operation to single-user mode to enable self-education in Demo, Test and Exam modes;
    • Recording and playback of radiotelephone communications;
    • Joint operation with navigational simulator.

    Transas GMDSS simulator:

    • Covers the essential areas of maritime training in full compliance with STCW 2010 and IMO Model Course 1.25;
    • Holds a type approval certificate from the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation;
    • Is certified by DNV as a “Class A” Radio Communication Simulator according to the Standard № 2.14.


    • Standalone mode for self-education;
    • Network mode for individual and joint training of fleet operators, including an expert assessment of their competency in accordance with STCW 2010 Code. Up to three instructor workplaces and up to 16 fully interactive trainee workplaces;
    • VTS operator training. The simulator can include up to 10 VTMS communication operator workplaces intended to train coast VTMS operators;
    • Mobile GMDSS Simulators for Long Range Certificate Examination. Used for local on-site examinations at various radio schools. The networked simulator (one instructor and two trainee stations) is connected via a wireless LAN. Designed to be carried in rugged suitcases to allow easy travelling and quick setup on-site.
