The Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services

The Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services is a non-profit organization which serves as a focal point for the exchange of information and the development of recommendations and standards related to all aspects of maritime radiocommunications and radionavigation.

Specifically, RTCM:
• Promotes ideas and exchanges information on maritime radiocommunications and radionavigation.

• Facilitates the development and exchange of views among and between government and nongovernment interests both nationally and internationally.

• Conducts studies and prepares reports on maritime radiocommunications and radionavigation issues to improve efficiency and capabilities.

Both government and non-government organizations are members, coming from the U.S. and many other nations. The RTCM organization consists of a Board of Directors, and the Assembly consisting of all members, officers, staff, technical advisors, and working committees.

Working committees are formed as needed to develop official RTCM recommendations regarding technical standards and regulatory policies in the maritime field.

Currently committees address such issues as maritime safety information, electronic charts, emergency position-indicating radiobeacons (EPIRB’s), personal locator beacons, ship radars, differential GPS, GLONASS, and maritime survivor locator devices.

The RTCM headquarters office is in Alexandria, VA.
