INMARSAT-C SYSTEM
This chapter provides an overview of the Inmarsat-C satellite communication system.
Introduction
The Inmarsat-C system provides worldwide telex and data transmission and reception of written information to owners of an Inmarsat-C
transceiver or a terrestrial telex network via satellite.
Communication mode is store-and-forward telex, which means all
information sent are first stored at a LES and then delivered to designated party.
An EGC (Enhanced Group Call) receiver is built in the FELCOM 12
to receive the following types of messages, broadcast from a LES:
¡SafetyNETTM-governments and maritime authorities can use this
service to distribute maritime safety information to ships within
selected areas.
¡FleetNETTM-commercial subscription organizations or shipping
companies can use this service to transmit trade information (for
example, company news or market prices) simultaneously to a selected group of ships, to provide up-to-the-minute information.
FELCOM 12 allows you to make distress calls which are given immediate priority over all other calls, and are automatically routed to a
land-based Rescue Co-ordination Centre (RCC).
Besides its primary application of ship-shore, shore-ship or ship-ship
communications, the Inmarsat-C service has also proved beneficial
to trucking firms who have found it indispensable for communicating with their vehicles. In this manual, however, we will concentrate
on ship applications, the main application.

Inmarsat System Configuration
Figure 2 Inmarsat-C satellite communication system
6
The Inmarsat-C system consists of the Operation Control Center
(OCC), Satellite Control Centers (SCC), Network Coordination Stations (NCS), Land Earth Stations (LES) and Mobile Earth Stations
(MES). The OCC, located at Inmarsat’s London headquarters, coordinates a wide range of activities in the Inmarsat system, including
commissioning of mobile earth stations.
The Inmarsat-C system divides the world into four regions and each
region is covered by its own satellite.

In each region there is one NCS and several LESs. The NCS keeps
track of all Inmarsat-C transceivers in its region and broadcasts information such as navigational warnings, weather reports and news.
The LES provides the link between the MES and the terrestrial telecommunications networks via satellite.

NCS common channel
The NCS has two major functions:
1) Transmitting information on a common channel.
2) Transmitting EGC messages to MESs.
NCS/LES signalling link This is the link between NCS and all
LESs in its region. All EGC messages
pass through this link.
LES TDM channel
This channel carries the circuit control
signal for MES and transmits messages
from LES to MES.
MES message channel
This channel carries messages from
MES to LES.
MES signaling channel This channel transmits requests, distress
alerts, data reports, etc. In addition, it
carries login and logout from MES to
NCS.
NCS/NCS signaling link This is the link between NCSs. It exchanges data between MESs operating
in different ocean regions.

MES interface
The MES consists of the Data Circuit
Terminating Equipment (DCE) and the
Data Terminal Equipment (DTE). The
DCE consists of the antenna unit and
the communication unit. And the DTE
consists of the terminal unit (or a PC),
keyboard and printer.
Terrestrial network
interface
The major functions of the LESs are:
1) Telex store-and-forward conversion
2) Handling EGC messages
3) Handling distress alerts
4) Data Reporting and Polling
Types of MES
There are three types of MES: class 1, class 2 and class 3. The
FELCOM 12 is a class 2 MES.
10
Class 1
1) Transmits messages to LES
2) Receives messages from LES
Class 2
1) The functions of class 1 plus operation as an EGC receiver when not
transmitting or receiving.
2) EGC-only receiver
Class 3
The function of class 1 plus simultaneous operation as a EGC-only receiver.
Peripheral Equipment
The following equipment can be additionally connected to the
FELCOM 12.
Distress/Urgent Receiving Unit (IC-303)
The IC-303 releases an audible alarm and blinks the lamp when distress message is received. (Refer to page 4-26 for further details.)
When an EGC distress or urgent message is received, with an aural
alarm and blinking lamp.
Distress Alert Unit (IC-302)
The IC-302 enables transmission of the distress alert from a remote
location; for example, ship’s bridge. (Refer to page 6-3 for more details.)
Distress Message Controller (DMC-5:Option)
The DMC provides for transmission and monitoring of the distress
alert. For further details, refer to the operator’s manual of the DMC5.

Login and Logout
Each time the DTE and communication unit are turned on register
your vessel with the Inmarsat C system, to enable communications
between your vessel and LES. This is called login. The first time you
login you must do it manually; thereafter the NCS does it for you
automatically, even when you move to another ocean region.
Note that the distress alert can be transmitted and EGC messages
received regardless of whether you are logged in or not.
If you will not be using the FELCOM 12 for a prolonged period
you should logout from the Inmarsat C system, before turning
off the power to the communication unit. The Inmarsat C system
will then register you as inactive, notifying anyone trying to call you
that you are currently unavailable. If you do not log out before turning off the power, the LES may attempt to send a message to you. It
may charge your correspondent, even if you never receive the
message.
Note: The communication unit should be idle (“Current State: IDLE”
appears at the bottom of the screen) to login and logout.
Note: When the FFA version is active, vessel is automatically logged
in when the power is turned on.

EGC Settings
What is the EGC (Enhanced Group Call) service?
The EGC service enables EGC information providers to send
SafetyNETTM or FleetNETTM messages via a LES to select groups of
ships, or to all ships within a defined geographical area.
To send an EGC message, the information provider prepares the message, and then accesses the Country of international telex network to
send the message to the LES. The LES processes and forwards it to
the NCS for the ocean region designated by the provider. Then, NCS
broadcasts the message throughout the ocean region.
Although all MESs can receive the EGC message, the message is
accepted only by those receivers that have been pre-programmed for
the area or group conditions contained in the message. All other EGC
receivers reject the message.
Two EGC services are available:
1) SafetyNETTM
This provides a means for information providers to distribute Maritime Safety Information (MSI) from shore-to-ship. Authorized information providers include:
a. Hydrographic Offices, for navigational warnings
b. National Weather Services, for meteorological warnings and
forecasts
c. Rescue Co-ordination Center, for shore-to-ship distress alerts
and other urgent information
d. International Ice Patrol, for North Atlantic ice hazards
2) FleetNETTM
This service allows authorized information providers such as commercial subscription services, shipping companies and governments, which have registered with a LES that supports
FleetNETTM, to broadcast messages to selected group of MESs.
Typical applications of FleetNETTM are:
a. Fleet or company broadcasts
b. News broadcasts
c. Commercial weather services
d. Market quotations
e. Government broadcasts to all vessels on a country’s registration

3. The cursor is on the first line. Type your message.
Preparing a confidential message
If communicating with another FELCOM 12, you can prepare a confidential message by entering “S???-addressee code(-password):” in
first line of message text. You can also receive confidential messages
containing this header from a land subscriber or any MES which uses
the FELCOM 12.
There are two types of confidential messages: message with addressee
code and message with both addressee code and password.
When a FELCOM 12 receives a confidential message, the message
is not displayed and printed immediately. To display or print the contents of a confidential message, the recipient executes the key sequences shown on page 4-23.
Explanation of addressee code and password
Caller and recipient agree beforehand on both the addressee code and
the password. The addressee code can be the title of the recipient; for
example, CAPTAIN. The password could be the classification of the
message; for example, SECRET.
Preparing message with addressee code
Type S, 3 question marks, hyphen, addressee code, colon followed
by text of message.
Be sure to enter colon.
S???–addressee code: (text of message)
maximum 8 characters

INMARSAT-C COMMUNICATIONS
This chapter explains how to transmit and receive in the Inmarsat-C
system.
Before conducting any communications, be sure to login with the
NCS in your area.
To transmit E-mail, register with the LES provider. E-mail charges
are calculated separately.
Transmitting
To transmit a message, you first create the message, attach the address of the recipient and send it to the LES. The address of the recipient in the Inmarsat-C system is his telex number for land-line or
MES Inmarsat Mobile Number (IMN) for ship.
The message can be one you’ve just prepared or one stored on a floppy
disk. (Messages cannot be transmitted by means of direct keyboard
input.)
Code description
Code can be specified at the IB-581 or PC.
IA5:
International alphabet No. 5, ASCII code (7 bit).
Specify this code to transmit English containing lower case
alphabet.
ITA2: No. 2 international communications alphabet (5 bit).
Specify this code for message which contains only No. 2 international communications alphabet (see A-11). ITA2 code
is transmitted faster than IA5 code.
Land-based telex equipment uses ITA2. The LES converts all
codes into ITA2. Code which cannot be converted is shown
with a question mark (?).
DATA: Data (8 bit). Use this code to transmit data.

Displaying EGC closed network ID (ENID)
To join a FleetNETTM service, an MES must be registered with an
information provider. The information provider adds the MES to the
group which is to receive the service by downloading a Group Call
ID, via a LES which supports FleetNETTM broadcasts, uniquely addressed to the MES. The MES stores the ID and can accept broadcasts from the information provider. The MES operator can not change
this stored EGC closed network IDs (ENIDs). Up to 64 ENIDs are
stored on a non-volatile memory.
The ENID stored can be accessed for downloading and deleting via
the satellite path. It is possible for an MES operator to inhibit (or
activate as required), via the DTE, selected ENIDs previously downloaded.
Along with the ENID, the name of the information provider is stored.
In the event that a download command is received and the ENID
storage area is full, then an ENID which has been inhibited (de-activated) by the MES operator will be written over. If none has been
inhibited, then the new download is not accepted.
Follow the procedure below to inhibit (or activate) an ENID.

Data Reporting
Data reporting provides automatic data transmission at regular (preset) intervals from your ship to your home office. The data are position, speed, bearing and other data sent from a navigational equipment
or an interface unit.
The data transmitted from the FELCOM 12 is temporarily stored in a
data reporting file at the LES. When an operator at your home office
accesses the LES, the LES delivers the data to your home office.
Some LESs may deliver it without being accessed.
Data reporting can be initiated by setting a data report on the FELCOM
12 or receiving a polling command from your home office.
FELCOM 12 offers two types of data reporting as follows:
¡Data report --------- on MES signalling channel
Refer to “Setting a data report” below.
¡Message report --- on MES message channel
Refer to “Setting a message report” on page 5-4.

Polling
When the FELCOM 12 receives a polling command from your home
office, it automatically transmits data to your home office. The data
are position, speed, bearing and other data sent from a navigational
equipment or an interface unit.
A polling command from your home office can also activate data
report or message report if the corresponding setting is completed on
the FELCOM 12. If a polling command with a file name is received,
the FELCOM 12 transmits the file to your home office.
Polling command
This paragraph shows you how to make the polling command at your
home office.
There are two kinds of polling commands: one is sent on the MES
signalling channel and the other is sent on the MES message channel.
Polling command on MES signalling channel
Request a land station to make the polling command because the format vavies with land station.
5-6
Polling command on MES message channel
To make the polling command, enter D???, hyphen, PIN code (max.
8 digits), hyphen, file name (stored in the floppy disk of the FELCOM
12), colon and text of message.
To send file data, type a hyphen and file name. If no hyphen and file
name is entered, MES automatically transmits nav data (own ship
position, course, speed, etc). For PIN Code setting refer to page 5-4.

Scanning NCS
The communication unit automatically tunes itself to the NCS selected on the System Setup menu. You can, however, tune to another
NCS which has a stronger signal. Scanning is possible only when the
communication unit is IDLE and FELCOM 12 is set to operate as an
Inmarsat-C transceiver.
If the communication unit is not idle, “Communication unit is not
Idle now. Cannot start scan.” appears. Press any key to escape then

result.
8-1
General Checking and Maintenance
Turn off the power before conducting any maintenance procedures
other than the cleaning of the terminal unit and communication unit.
Cleaning the terminal unit and communication
unit
These units can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. DO NOT use chemical cleaners. They may remove paint and markings.
Checking connectors and earth terminal
The connectors and earth terminal on the rear panel of the communication unit and on the bottom panel of the terminal unit should be
checked periodically for tightness. If the earth terminal has rusted,
clean it.
Floppy disk drive head
The floppy disk is coated with a magnetic material which stores information entered into the disk. If this material is damaged by foreign material adhering to the disk drive head it may not be possible to
read from or write to the disk. Clean the head regularly with a cleaning floppy disk to prevent loss of data.
When the power can’t be turned on (power lamp
does not light)
3) and 4) are for service technicians.
1) Check the power cable connector on both the rear panel of the
terminal unit and communication unit for tightness. Check if the
ship’s mains switchboard is turned on.
2) On the terminal unit, check the breaker on the rear panel. If it has
tripped it will be protruding several millimeters. Reset it if necessary.
3) On the rear panel of the terminal unit, disconnect the power cable.
Connect a multimeter to the power cable connector and confirm
21.6 and 31.2 V. (pin #1: positive, pin #2: negative)
4) On the rear panel of the communication unit, disconnect the power
cable. Connect a multimeter to the power cable connector and
confirm 21.6 and 31.2 V. (pin #1 and #2: positive, pin #3 and #4:
negative)
8-2
Self Tests

Performance Verification (PV) Test
After the FELCOM 12 is installed, the installing technician usually
confirms that the unit is functioning properly and is logged in with
the Inamarsat C system by conducting the PV test.
The PV test consists of the message reception test, message transmission test and distress alert test.
The results of the test appear on the PV test result display.
Note that the test cannot be conducted from a 2nd DTE. Note also
that the test can be initiated by a LES.
PV test sequence
1. Select PV Test on the Test menu.
2. The NCS acknowledges request for testing.
3. The MES, upon receiving acknowledgment from NCS, goes into
pending state.
4. NCS will select a (not busy) LES to perform the test.
5. The LES transmits a test message to the MES.
6. MES transmits a test message to the designated LES.
7. LES receives test message.
8-4
8. The MES automatically transmits the distress alert test within two
minutes after completion of step 8.
9. When the distress alert test is finished the results of the test are
sent to MES.
The entire PV test can be conducted automatically (taking about
15 minutes in total).
