Description

The bearing information from transmitters can be correlated with the corresponding radar target and AIS-position information at a VTS (Vessel Traffic Service) centre. Two or more RT-800 Systems on different locations can be used to locate a ship’s exact position by triangulation. The RT-800 can easily be integrated in a VTS environment.

The RT-800 operates on four frequency bands:

  • All 19 Cospas-Sarsat frequencies between 406.022 and 410.000 MHz
  • Marine VHF from 156.000 MHz to 162.025 MHz including channel 16
  • Civil VHF air band from 118.000 MHz to 123.999 MHz, including the international emergency frequency of 121.500 MHz
  • Military air band from 240.000 MHz to 245.975 MHz including the military emergency frequency of 243.000 MHz
