Vessel Traffic Services

Through a strong working relationship with Internationally renowned VTS Instructor Bob Shaw, AMC Search has recently upgraded its VTS training capability, through the installation of a new Transas NTPro 5000 based VTS Simulator.

The VTS simulator provides trainee operators with Radar, AIS, and four VHF frequencies for communication with traffic ships. The new facility has synchronized playback capability enabling visual observation of vessel traffic movement while reviewing voice communications between VTS operators and the vessel traffic in their area.

AMC Search’s VTS Basic Operator (V/103/1) and VTS Supervisor (V-103/2) courses have AMSA acceptance as meeting the IALA Guidelines.
