Summary of Corrections - 14220_48
Global Maritime Distress and Safety System Background Information Whenever  a  ship  is  under  way,  it  is  necessary  to  receive  information concerning  any  hazards  in  the  area  that  the  ship  may  be  operating. Broadcast  warnings  fulfill  this  requirement.  In  recent  years  a  system  has been  established  that  notifies  mariners  by  radio  messages.  All  messages are  broken  down  into  two  categories.  The  first  category  is  called Hydros.  Hydrolants  cover  warnings  in  the  Atlantic  Ocean,  Hydropacs cover  the  Pacific  Ocean.  The  second  category  is  called  Navareas,  which covers  specific  areas.  Navareas  contain  information  that  advises mariners  of  operating  area  warnings.  An  example  would  be  a  navigation aid  adrift.  Refer  to  section  III  of  the  NTM  for  more  information. Broadcast  warning  message  boards  must  be  updated  from  the  weekly NTM. NAVTEX To  meet  changing  requirements  and  to  provide  better  service  using  the latest  technology,  DMAHTC  has  worked  with  the  Navy  to  provide up-to-date  warning  information.  Thus  the  NAVTEX  part  of NAVINFONET  (fig.  1-19)  system  has  evolved  and  is  currently  going  into place  on  all  fleet  units. Figure  1-19.  Components  of  GMDSS  (from  Pub  117). NAXTEX  will  completely  replace  the  Hydros  and  Navareas  warnings sometime  in  the  future.  Refer  to  the  NAVTEX  receiver  instruction manual  for  complete  information. 1-31
