Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC 61108-5:2020 specifies the minimum performance requirements, methods of testing and required test results for BDS shipborne receiver equipment, based on IMO resolution MSC.379(93), which uses the signals from the BeiDou navigation satellite system in order to determine position. It takes account of the general requirements given in IMO resolution A.694(17) and is associated with IEC 60945. When a requirement in this document is different from IEC 60945, the requirement in this document takes precedence. This document also takes account, as appropriate, of requirements for the presentation of navigation-related information on shipborne navigational displays given in IMO resolution MSC.191(79) and is associated with IEC 62288 and MSC.302(87) associated with IEC 62923-1.
This receiver standard applies to navigation in the ocean, coastal, harbour entrances, harbour approaches and restricted waters, as defined in IMO resolution A.915(22) and IMO resolution A.1046(27).
