Satamatics Launches New Version of Ocean Alert Tracking System

Wednesday, November 07, 2007
Satamatics, the global provider of satellite telematics, asset tracking and monitoring services, has announced the launch of the Ocean Alert MKIII, satellite tracking unit for maritime applications. The new model is based on the proven technology of the SAT-201, replacing the SAT-101 unit which formed the basis of the previous Ocean Alert product. The SAT-201 is the smallest IsatM2M transceiver on the market, making the unit both discreet and compact. Its low power consumption and proven network reliability make Ocean Alert MKIII a low maintenance, end-to-end solution to meet ship security and tracking requirements and regulations. Satamatics' service provides seamless and uninterrupted global roaming across all the ocean regions of the world. Utilizing the Inmarsat system of geostationary satellites ensures a cost effective, high quality, reliable service with rapid message delivery. The Ocean Alert MKIII meets or exceeds all SOLAS XI-2/6 mandatory regulations, guidance notes and performance standards for Ship Security Alert Systems (SSAS). The product meets all current equipment requirements for Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT), due to be implemented in 2008. In an emergency, where the security of the ship is compromised, the triggering of any of the covert activation points will immediately raise an alert, automatically sending SMS text, facsimile and email alerts to the fleet operator’s chosen points of contact. In the event of an external power supply interruption, including malicious disconnection, Ocean Alert’s integrated back-up battery will take over.
