NORCONTROLL CAPELLA 5.1 GMDSS SIMULATOR and Real GMDSS Console:
SEA 3 (Ship Station Licence No A/7014/2009 and other radio systems and equipments
described as follows (see Annex 2.1 – MCU GMDSS Laboratory - GMDSS SEA 300
GMDSS CONSOLE (real GMDSS CONSOLE) & OTHER EQUIPMENTS &
NORCONTROL CAPELLA GMDSS SIMULATOR).
A.
The NORCONTROL CAPELLA 5.1 GMDSS Simulator, designated and
implemented by Kongsberg Maritime Ship Systems (KMSS) Norway, incorporates all
communication equipments applicable to four sea-areas (A1 to A4) as determined by the
IMO/SOLAS GMDSS regulations.
The GMDSS Simulator is used to train our students in order to obtain:
- General Operator's Certificate for the Global Maritime Distress and Safety – GOC;
- Restricted Operator’s Certificate for the Global Maritime Distress and Safety - ROC;
- Long Range Operator's Certificate for the Global Maritime Distress and Safety – LRC;
- Short Range Operator's Certificate for the Global Maritime Distress and Safety – SRC.
The NORCONTROL CAPELLA GMDSS Simulator consists of:
- one Instructor Station for full exercises and system control
- and 10 Student Stations enabling all GMDSS COMMUNICATIONS
TRAINING CAPABILITIES.
All terrestrial and satellite systems or equipments are implemented in The GMDSS
NORCONTROL CAPELLA Simulator:
-
VHF/MF/HF radio systems;

The flexible design allows the users to specify the communication equipment required
to satisfy any individual training needs. The GMDSS Simulator can be used for SAR
(Search and Rescue) simulated operations in a multi ship environment.
The NORCONTROL CAPELLA GMDSS Simulator, KMSS Norway is certificated by
TELENOR, Division Maritime Radio, Norway, as in full compliance with and direct
functional and pedagogical evaluation according to STCW95 and TELENOR
requirements.
TELENOR, Division Maritime Radio, Norway recommend The NORCONTROL
CAPELLA GMDSS Simulator, KMSS Norway, for GMDSS training at any national
2
and international university, academy and special GMDSS training institutions.
NORCONTROL CAPELLA GMDSS Simulator manufactured by KONGSBERG
MARITIME NORVEGIA, purchased by Constanta Maritime University was assessed
by the ANCOM (NATIONAL AUTHORITY FOR COMMUNICATION) –
BUCHAREST, ROMANIA – the national competent body in the field, as complying
with the requirements for training and certification as specified in the decision CEPT
ERC / Dec/ (99) 01; this document is the basis for the activity of this authority
regarding the assessment of the maritime radio operators.
