2.2.2 - LRIT Ship Position Reports (Messages 1, 2 and 3)
18.104.22.168 Table 2 outlines the parameters associated with the positional data messages (ship position reports).
22.214.171.124 The parameters added by the LRIT shipborne equipment include the latitude, longitude, Time Stamp when the position was generated, and the shipborne equipment identifier.
126.96.36.199 The parameter "ASP ID#" table 2 provides the unique LRIT component ID of the ASP that has received the LRIT positional data.
188.8.131.52 The "Message type" parameter in table 2 indicates the type of message of the associated LRIT message. The LRIT components such as the LRIT Data Centres can use this parameter to distinguish between the various LRIT messages listed in table 1.
184.108.40.206 The "Message ID#" parameter in table 2 is a unique identification number that LRIT components can use to identify individual messages within the LRIT network. The Message ID# is generated by using a concatenation of the following parameters: message type, IMO #, ASP ID# and Time Stamp. All these parameters are necessary in order to generate a unique ID number.
220.127.116.11 The "Reference ID#" parameter in table 2 will either be a message ID of an associated request message or a 0 value. The 0 value is populated if the message is not the result of a request message whereas a valid "Message ID" value indicates that a request message has initiated the LRIT positional data report.
18.104.22.168 The "IMO#" and "MMSI#" parameters in table 2 are the IMO ship identification number and Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) number of the ship being tracked respectively.
22.214.171.124 The "Time Stamp 2" and "Time Stamp 3" parameters in table 2 represent the date and time associated with when the ASP received and transmitted the positional data message.
126.96.36.199 The "Other" parameter is reserved for future parameters.
188.8.131.52 The parameter "DC ID#" in table 2 provides the unique LRIT component ID of the Data Centre receiving the LRIT positional data.
184.108.40.206 The "Time Stamp 4" and "Time Stamp 5" parameters in table 2 represent the date and time associated with when the Data Centre received and transmitted the positional data message.
220.127.116.11 The "Response type" parameter in table 2 provides information on why the designated LRIT Data User (Requestor) is receiving the LRIT positional data. The LRIT Data User will be entitled to receive the LRIT positional data report based upon functioning as: a flag State; a port State; a coastal State; or a SAR service.
18.104.22.168 The "LRIT Data User (Requestor)" parameter in table 2 represents the LRIT Data User that is originating the request message.
22.214.171.124 The "Ship Name" parameter in table 2 represents the ship name.
126.96.36.199 The "LRIT Data User (Provider)" parameter in table 2 is a unique identification number associated with the Contracting Government to which the ship is registered. This parameter is used to identify the destination of the request message. The International LRIT Data Exchange will look at this parameter during processing of the request message and use it to correctly route the message to the appropriate Data Centre(s).
188.8.131.52 If responding to a SAR request, the response type would be SAR; if responding to a port request, the response type would be Port; if responding to a coastal request, the response type would be Coastal; if responding to a flag request, the response type would be Flag.
