ARMADA DEL ECUADOR DIRECCION GENERAL DE LA MARINA MERCANTE MARITIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION SYSTEM ECUADOR INTERNATIONAL TRAFFIC (SITRAME) 1. INTRODUCTION The Ecuador, as a signatory of the International Conventions for the Safety of Life at Sea and Search and Rescue, has assumed the commitment to mobilize their available means to help and protect merchant ships of any nationality who are in an emergency situation inside the jurisdictional maritime area of their responsibility. In the presence of risks that the threat of terrorist acts establishes putting in danger people and goods, and that can affect to the economy of the country, especially in the maritime field, the National Government settled down as Politics of State the Maritime Protection implementing in the Ecuador the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS). In this sense, the Ecuadorian Navy, through the Dirección General de la Marina Mercante y del Litoral,, has implemented the present MaritimeTraffic Information System in Ecuador (SITRAME), that uses the data process to carry out the surveillance and control of merchant ships in their sailing by the ecuadorian area of responsibility. As much increases the number of ships introduced into the system, more reliable and effective it will be, consequently the safety and protection of all kinds of ships that sail through the jurisdictional waters will increase. For this reason all the national merchant ships and foreigners of international traffic are forced to participate in this system, with the transmission of messages on a programmed trip, the same ones that have been designed under an established format. 2. PURPOSE AND UTILITY 2.1 Purpose To carry out the surveillance of national ships and foreigners of international traffic in their passage through the Ecuador area of responsibility, in demand or leaving from Ecuadorian ports and/or in innocent pass, through the information sent by the own ships who are navigating in this area, in order to take the appropriate actions before SAR incidents and Maritime Security. 2.2 Utility The SITRAME, in the event of a SAR incident, allows the immediate localization of a damaged ship and consequently the opportune action of the next ships under conditions of given support; likewise, in an incident of Maritime Security, it allows to take the necessary actions specifies it the ISPS Code. 3. PROCEDURE 3.1 Operation Area. The system will be applied in the maritime area of Ecuador responsibility, implicit toward the West until longitude 095 23 00 W, among the latitudes 01° 28' 54" N and 03° 23' 33.96" S; and, 200 NM around the Galápagos Islands, geographic coordinates that belong to the Ecuador SAR Region (Figure 1) 3.2. Getting into the system All the ships that sail into the Ecuadorian maritime jurisdiction are forced to participate in the system. To enter into the system, ships should send their sail plan message for each journey inside of the responsibility area that covers this system or when ships are sailing by innocent pass through the area. That means the introduction into the system and later the control begins when the ship sends its sail plan with the SP message and ends when it sends his arrival/final message with the FR message, by going out the Ecuadorian jurisdictional area.

A ship that is already inside the area and is uninformed, and hasn't sent the correspondent messages; it should enter immediately into the system, sending its Sailing Plan (SP), from the position on which it stays and it will remain within the system sending the correspondent messages until it leaves the area, finishing its intervention sending the arrival/final message (FR). 3.3 General Instruction The SITRAME basically consists on the administration of the remitted information by the ships in four types of messages of established format that reveal data of its permanency in Ecuadorian ports and its passage from the entrance until the exit of Ecuadorian responsibility waters; the messages are the following ones: Sailing Plan Report (SP), Departure/Position Report (PR), Deviation Report (DR) and Arrival/Final Report (FR). At the entrance of the operation area, in demand of an Ecuadorian port, the control begins when a ship sends its Sailing Plan with the SP message, confirms its entry to the area with a PR message, confirming its position according to its sailing plan sending another PR message in an intermediate point of its transit; and, it ends when it sends its Arrival/final message with the FR message. At the sail of an Ecuadorian port, to leave the area or with destination to an another Ecuadorian port, the control is reinitiated when a ship sends its Sailing Plan with the SP message, and confirms its port sailing with a PR message, confirming its position according to its trip plan sending another PR message in an intermediate point of its transit; and, it ends when sends it Arrival/Final message with the FR message arriving to the new Ecuadorian port or at its final departure of the operation area. All the ships of International traffic, greater than 500 GT or that carry hydrocarbon or potentially dangerous cargo, that must navigate in the Galapagos Islands area, for entering to an Ecuadorian port or to departure the Ecuadorian jurisdictional area, should make its navigation out of the specific zone established as Galapagos Maritime Sensitive Zone, declared by the International Maritime Organization (Figure 2) The Route Points that are established in the literal E of the SP and DR messages are points that will always be located inside the responsibility area that covers the system, according to the suggested in the numeral 3.1 Operation Area. In every message there is a field to introduce remarks, when it's necessary, they must be written down to clarify the information that is tried to express in the context of the message. The sending of the Sailing Plan Message (SP) that anticipates the sailing of an Ecuadorian port will be a requirement to obtain the sailing permission from the Captain of Port or Superintendence of the Oil Terminals that belongs to; and, when it arrives from foreign ports and the ship enters to an Ecuadorian port or a Superintendence, the sending of SP, PR, FR messages and the IAA format will be requirements to obtain the free chat in the destination port or superintendence. 3.4 Types of Messages 3.4.1 Sailing Plan Report (SP) It is the basic information sent when a ship enters to the system and to estimate its position based on the route points, hours and speed; and, to realize its surveillance, should carry out it in the following cases: a) when the ship anticipates its anchor to an Ecuadorian port, b) when the ship proceeds from foreign ports, it enters in the area of Ecuadorian jurisdiction in demand of an Ecuadorian ports; and, c) when the ship comes from foreign ports, it enters in the area of Ecuadorian jurisdiction through innocent passage. It uses the following format: ID MESSAGE/SITRAME/SP// A/SHIP'S NAME/CALL SIGN/FLAG/TYPE// B/PORT OF DEPARTURE/DATE-TIME OF DEPARTURE/MONTH/PORT FACILITY// C/PORT OF DESTINATION/ETA/MONTH/PORT FACILITY// D/POSITION LAT-LONG/DATE-TIME/MONTH// E/WAY POINTS/LAT-LONG/ETA/MONTH// F/COURSE/SPEED// X/REMARKS//
