introduction
Introduction
  • Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centres
    • Data source access, past and present
    • The need for speed and accuracy
    • The new Inmarsat solution
  • False Distress Alerts
    • Evolutionary software implementation
    • Pro-active reduction in false distress alerts
    • Proof that it works!
mrcc data requirements
MRCC Data Requirements

For information related to Inmarsat alerts

  • MRCCs traditionally called the Inmarsat NOC
  • Can be time consuming
  • Potential for not transcribing correctly
  • Accuracy and timeliness is essential
making the information available
Making the Information available
  • Inmarsat holds the registration database
    • Contains sensitive commercial information
    • LESO agreement needed to release
    • Agreement obtained 
    • Development of special MRCC database
    • Trials late 2000/early 2001
    • Now open to all associated RCCs around the world
the new mrcc database
The new MRCC Database
  • Advantages for MRCCs
    • True copy of relevant part of main Inmarsat database
    • Contains all information needed by the MRCC
    • Dynamically updated
    • 24 x 7 availability
    • Secure web access
    • RCC operators have all information ‘on tap’
    • ….. and can still also call to the NOC
false distress alerts
False Distress Alerts
  • Constantly debated at IMO
  • Seen by some as an increasing problem
    • But reality is quite different
  • Actions demanded – but how to achieve?
  • MF/HF DSC broadcast vs. Inmarsat distress
    • Inmarsat is one-to-one alerting
    • Real or false quickly established
  • Inmarsat research and results
distress alert quality control system
Distress Alert Quality Control System
  • Accurate master database and application tools
  • Monthly reports now produced as routine
  • Actual distress usage on all Inmarsat standards
  • We now have proof and are taking action
reducing false alerts via inmarsat
Reducing False Alerts via Inmarsat
  • Worst offenders tackled first
  • Ships contacted directly from Inmarsat
  • “Softly, softly” approach adopted
  • “Do you have a problem, please?”
    • With the equipment; or
    • Understanding the operation; or
    • Training needs
results achieved
Results achieved
  • All ships have responded positively so far
  • Real reductions in false alerts
  • No immediate need to escalate action
  • However, if problems persist…
  • IMO and IMSO warm welcome
  • MRCC and other beneficiaries
inmarsat enhancing maritime safety
Inmarsat – Enhancing Maritime Safety
  • Inmarsat
    • Not just maintaining, but improving safety
    • Front line information support for MRCCs
    • Positive and practical responseto IMO requirements
