Service and User Passwords
The Transponder system is equipped with two levels of Password Protection, User and Service
Password.
1) The User Password, which is the lower security level, allows access to all menus except Menu 6:
Service Configuration which is protected by the Service Password.
2) The Service Password is required in order to enter the Service Configuration Menu. This is a
higher security level that can not be accessed with the User Password and therefore ensures that
the Service Configuration is protected, and limited to authorized service personnel.
The master of the vessel has to ensure that only authorized persons are allowed to make changes to
the Service Configuration and ensures that the newly reset password is stored very carefully, as it
can not be reset from the default “NAUT” a second time.
WARNING: a master key is not available and the unit would have to be returned to a service center
to correct for a lost Service password.
The User Password can be reset in the service configuration menu by entering the Service
Configuration menu and creating a new password.
Changing the Service Password
Select “Service Configuration” from the Main Menu with the cursor button [Up] & [Down] or press
Number 6 on the keyboard.
The password query field appears. Input default Service Password “NAUT” and press M5 [Enter].

3.5.2 AIS Status
The AIS Status Menu provides a variety of information concerning own vessel settings, as well as
the current AIS status of the other vessels, which are displayed in the Vessel Listing.
Version Info provides details of the actual software release currently installed. Security Log traces
the downtimes of the Transponder, to ensure those periods of down time when the transponder is
out of order or lacking electricity can be traced.

GPS Antenna Mounting
It is important to input the exact mounting position of the GPS Antenna on the vessel as this
influences the accuracy of the displayed target in an ECDIS.
(RefPntExt:) = The position of any external positioning device (GPS Antenna) used as primary
position source.
(RefPntInt:) = The position of the GPS Antenna (fallback device in case primary source is disabled).
After antenna installation, the distance from the sides must be measured and input.
Either the distance from the vessel’s bow (a) or the stern (b) and starboard (d) and backboard (c) are
required.
e.g. A vessel with the following dimensions:
Length:
Beam:
100m
20m
Input:
A90C5 - then press Enter or
B10D15 - then press Enter
Result:
RefPtExt:
A90 B10 C5 D15m
The NAUTICAST automatically calculates the missing distances (a) or (b) and (c) or (d) - based on
the vessel’s length and beam.
Note:
When receiving position data from large vessels, it should be considered that the position refers to
the antenna mounting point upon the vessel. To ensure accurate navigation, the antenna reference
points (see Other Vessels Details) should be taken into consideration when determining the vessels
position.
User Manual
50
Y1-03-0203 Rev.K
Also, the electronic chart display in use should be programmed to consider the antenna reference
points. Traffic images are represented in true distances only when all displayed targets, including
own vessel, are working with AIS position information, which considers Antenna reference points.
Sample:
Display:
CallSign = D11233
ShipName = M/V TUGELA
Length = 20m
Beam = 30m
RefPointExt = A170 B30 C15 D15m (location of the external GPS antenna)
RefPointInT = A170 B30 C9 D11m (location of the internal GPS antenna)
ShipType = Tug
With the up/down keys you may move from line to line and input the correct data. The last line
“ShipType:“ must be selected by actuating the left/right keys out of the pool of all possible types.
Actuate “Enter”
Special is the setting of the GPS antenna position:
The first settings which have to be entered are Length and Beam of the ship in meters.
Next step: enter 2 values more per location to specify the distance from the bow and from the side.
Distances are to be set in meters.
A = the distance from bow to the antenna
B= the distance from the antenna to the stern
C = the distance from the port side to the antenna
D = the distance from the antenna to the starboard side
Example: Length =200m, A = 160m, Beam = 30m, D = 15m
Move with Up/down keys to the Length line. Type 200, actuate “Enter”
Move one line down. Type 30, actuate “Enter”
RefPtExt and RefPtInt both show “N/A” now.
Only one of the length values A or B must be entered and one of the width values C or D.
For our example in the RefPtExt – line type as follows:
A160D15 (without spaces)
Actuate “Enter”
The full line as shown will be displayed: RefPtExt: A160 B40 C15 D15m
B and C are calculated by the AIS.
Do the same with the RefPtInt – line

3.5.6 Service Configuration (Service Password Protected)
The Service Configuration Menu allows initial configuration of the Service Password, Password
Settings (on/off), MMSI/IMO Numbers and the option of resetting the NAUTICAST to Factory
Settings.
The Service Password is required in order to enter the Service Configuration Menu. This is a higher
security level than can be reached with the User Password and therefore ensures that the Service
Configuration is protected, and limited to authorized service personnel.
Note:
The default Service Password is set at “NAUT”
It is strongly recommended to change it immediately after commencing initial NAUTICAST operation!

Graphical User Interface (GUI)
The advanced version of the NAUTICAST is fitted with the new Graphical User Interface. The
intention of this interface is to enable the operator to visualize any AIS traffic, which is traveling
around the own position. Fast and direct access to AIS data is supported by display of a list
containing vessel information, which can be reached directly from the Navigation Screen and viewed
in two views (radar and fairway orientations). The NAUTICAST display is limited in resolution and
size and should therefore be used as an additional information source only. The Navigation Screen
(without the graphical information) remains the most relevant information source. The GUI is only
visible in the advanced version of the NAUTICAST (software version 2.0.1.0 or higher).
Attention:
The Automatic Identification System (AIS) provides additional information
from AIS equipped vessels only.
The intentions of the new views are to visualize this AIS data
for better and faster access to the ship details.
The main features of this Graphical User Interface (GUI) are the two new view options:
- Radar View
The typical way of presenting traffic information on screens
- Fairway View
This type of view is oriented to the current course over ground (COG) and supports the
operator with information related to this particular region
Remarks
- In both views it is possible to zoom in and out to get more detail or a better overview of the
visual content.
- Additionally, it is possible to change the target (own & other vessel) symbols to fit personal
requirements in both views.
- To receive further information on a specific target it can be selected by using the cursor keys.
- Messages will be displayed on the GUI. Writing answers to messages is done by
automatically transferring to the Navigation Screen structure.
- The function keys remain unchanged in the GUI.

5 Troubleshooting
5.1
Reading and understanding Alarms:
The NAUTICAST differentiates between Alarm and TXT messages. An Alarm informs the user about
major system malfunctions and failings in the connected sensors.
The Alarm Status informs the user about all active Alarms. The Alarm will be disabled and deleted
from the Alarm Status, as soon as the displayed problem has been rectified.
The TXT status displays additional sensor information and the UTC clock status.
See tables (page 41) for Alarm and TXT Messages.
Select “AIS Status” with cursor button [Up] & [Down]
or press Nr. 2 on the keyboard.

System Reaction / Remedy
Reaction: The transponder unit stops transmission. If Alarm ID 01 and
ID 02 are simultaneously displayed, then a major antenna problem has
arisen.
Remedy:
Check if the antenna is AIS compatible (156-162 MHz) and if the
antenna cabling has a short circuit or is missing any contacts at the
connectors.
