System Integration


Based on its long experience, Marcom is able to propose complete Radio Frequency Stations design capabilities from the Coverage Study (with special software) to the Completion of the Project (Hardware & Software Supply; Factory Acceptance Test, Engineering, Installation, Commissioning, Site Acceptance, Training) including its management. Below some non-exhaustive Radio System Integration Examples:

GMDSS VHF Station

Thanks to its experience in maritime communication systems, Marcom can propose turn-key VHF coast stations for maritime safety or coastal surveillance with the following sub-systems integrated in a fully equipped 19'' rack :

  • VHF Transceiver for channel 16 in simplex mode (distress channel for DSC),

  • VHF Transceiver for Channel 70 in simplex mode (distress channel for Voice),

  • VHF Transceiver for Public Correspondence in duplex/simplex mode (ITU maritime bands),

  • Spare VHF Transceiver (cold or hot spare),

  • Audio, RS232/422/485, IP interface for data and control,

  • Local operator console for Voice  when necessary,

  • Duplexer for Simplex/Duplex modes,

  • UPS with main AC and DC inputs,

  • Rack Earthing Connections,

  • Coupling and filtering (cavity filters) when necessary,

  • VHF antennas with mounting kits, coaxial cables with connectors, coaxial jumpers, coaxial earthing kits, coaxial lightning protection etc.

  • Other Accessories such as Ethernet Switches, rack internal cables,

  • Specific adaptations when necessary,


AIS VHF Station


Thanks to its experience in maritime communication systems, Marcom can propose turn-key AIS coast stations for maritime safety or coastal surveillance with the following sub-systems integrated in a fully equipped 19'' rack :

  • AIS Transceiver for channel 29 (AIS1) and channel 89 (AIS2) ,

  • UPS with main AC and DC inputs,

  • Rack Earthing Connections,

  • Coupling and filtering (cavity filters) at transmission and reception when necessary,

  • VHF antennas with mounting kits, coaxial cables with connectors, coaxial jumpers, coaxial earthing kits, coaxial lightning protection etc.

  • GNSS Antenna with mounting kit, coaxial cable and connectors,

  • Other Accessories such as Ethernet Switches, rack internal cables,

  • Specific adaptations when necessary,
