GMDSS for the Solomon Islands

The Asian Development Bank has commissioned GMDSS company Dunstan and Associates, and its local partner company Cruz Communications, to supply and install a new GMDSS marine radio station for the Solomon Islands Maritime Safety Authority.

The station is located at the Rescue Coordination Centre in Honiara and provides communication for vessels operating in the Solomon Islands region using Barrett Communication 2050 MF/HF radio communications systems and the TransOceana Digital Selective Calling (DSC) system.

“We use four Barrett 2050 radios as HF Digital Selective Calling receivers, a fifth Barrett 2050 as the Digital Selective Calling transmitter and a sixth Barrett 2050 for radiotelephone operation,” said managing director of Dunstan and Associates, Glenn Dunstan.

As part of the installation, five operators attended a training course on the principles of GMDSS and operation of the new system.

Dunstan and Associates says it has already used similar Barrett HF configurations for projects in Thailand, Papua New Guinea and Iraq.
