1 IMO/IHO World-wide Navigational Warning Service (WWNWS) 1 WWNWS 1972 PROPOSAL TO SET UP AN Ad Hoc IHO/IMO COMMITTEE TO DEVELOP AN INTER- NATIONALLY CO-ORDINATED SYSTEM FOR PROMULGATING LONG RANGE NAVIGATIONAL WARNINGS TO VESSELS AT SEA FIRST MEETING IN MONACO DRAFT PLAN SUBMITTED TO IHO CONFERENCE. 2 1

2 WWNWS 1979 WWNWS ADOPTED BY IMO RESOLUTION 1991 AMENDED ON THE INTRODUCTION OF THE GLOBAL MARITIME DISTRESS AND SAFETY SYSTEM (GMDSS) 3 WWNWS INCLUDES: ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE BROADCAST SYSTEMS 4 2

3 WWNWS ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE INTERNATIONAL CO-ORDINATION WARNINGS ISSUED FOR DESIGNATED SEA AREAS RESPONSIBILITIES OF ISSUING AUTHORITIES DEFINED SUBJECT CRITERIA DEFINED 3 LEVELS OF WARNING 5 WWNWS WARNING TYPES NAVAREA Warnings Issued by a NAVAREA Co-ordinator Information required by ocean-going mariners for safe navigation Principally affecting main shipping routes and offshore areas 6 3

5 WWNWS WARNING TYPES Local Warnings Issued by a local co-ordinator e.g. a port or harbour authority Information required for safe navigation within port or inshore waters that passing ocean-going vessels do not require 9 WWNWS BROADCAST SYSTEMS NAVTEX - DIRECT PRINTING TELEGRAPHIC SERVICE FOR COASTAL WARNINGS ENHANCED GROUP CALL (EGC) SAFETYNET - SATELLITE SYSTEM FOR LONG RANGE WARNINGS OR FOR COASTAL WARNINGS IN AREAS WHERE INTERNATIONAL NAVTEX SERVICE IS NOT PROVIDED 10 5

8 INMARSAT satellites coverage 15 Enhanced Group Call To dispatch messages to ship within: Fixed area NAVAREA/METAREA (implemented in the Ship Earth Stations processor) Coastal area (defined by a code letter) Area geographically defined by its origin: Circular ( centre coordinates, radius ) rectangular ( left corner coordinates, latitude and longitude extents ) A 16 8

9 Distress SafetyNET Priority Codes Urgency Safety Routine 17 SAFETYNET EGC INTERNATIONAL SATELLITE BASED SERVICE AUTOMATIC, DIRECT PRINTING SERVICE WITHIN THE FOOTPRINT OF GEO- SYNCHRONOUS SATELLITES ( 70 N TO 70 S) CALLS MAY BE DIRECTED TO A FIXED GEOGRAPHICAL AREA, E.G. NAVAREA OR TO A UNIQUELY DEFINED REGION 18 9

10 TSUNAMI Warnings Possible Permanent Method of Promulgation Tsunami Warnings can be classified as another type of MSI alongside Nav Warnings, Met Information and SAR Information Regional Tsunami Warning Centres become authorised information providers in the International SafetyNET Service Regional Tsunami Warning Centres input warnings directly into SafetyNET (accessed through a specified LES to broadcast through the appropriate satellite) Warnings are given a distress priority (activates audible alarm on the receiver) Warnings are issued to a large specified (circular or rectangular) geographical area i.e. one broadcast reaches all relevant national points of contact 19 TSUNAMI Warnings Possible Permanent Method of Promulgation National Points of Contact activate National Contingency Plans which may include: Re-broadcasting warnings through national radio and television Direct contact with major ports and local authorities to rebroadcast information locally Broadcasting warnings to vessels in coastal areas through NAVTEX 20 10

11 TSUNAMI Warnings Possible Permanent Method of Promulgation Vessels at sea receiving the warning through SafetyNET or NAVTEX will consider re-broadcasting the warning on other means e.g. VHF R/T to other vessels and port authorities in their vicinity who may not have SafetyNET or NAVTEX receivers 21 TSUNAMI Warnings Possible Immediate Interim Solution Tsunami Warning Centres pass warnings to relevant NAVAREA Co-ordinators who input warnings directly into SafetyNET for broadcast within their NAVAREAs Thereafter, as for proposed permanent method 22 11

12 TSUNAMI Warnings Requirements in order to Implement the Immediate Interim Solution Designated Tsunami Warning Centre with reliable communications links to relevant NAVAREA Coordinators (e.g. preferably any 2 of the following: telex, , fax, telephone, radio) National Points of Contact equipped with SafetyNET receivers National Contingency Plans for onward dissemination of warnings and measures to mitigate tsunami effects 23 TSUNAMI Warnings Requirements for permanent system Designated Tsunami Warning Centre with satellite EGC equipment and secure communications links to at least 2 satellite LES National Points of Contact equipped with SafetyNET receivers National Contingency Plans for onward dissemination of warnings and measures to mitigate tsunami effects 24 12

13 Measures already taken IMO and IHO IMO COMSAR circular and IHO Circular Letter issued to all members facilitating the use of the WWNWS for issuing Tsunami Warnings Chairman of the IMO SafetyNET Coordinating Panel is ready to authorise Tsunami Warning Centres as Information Providers in the International SafetyNET Service 25 Measures already taken IMO and IHO IHO CPRNW is ready to liaise with IOC with respect to the format of Tsunami Warnings and updating the relevant MSI guidance documents INMARSAT Ltd (who currently manage the International SafetyNET service) are ready to provide training and advice to Regional Tsunami Warning Centres 26 13
