Fupe Systems Supports SkyWave LRIT

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Fupe Systems AS, a provider of satellite, radio, data, GSM and software engineering solutions, announced its agreement to support the SkyWave Mobile Communication Inc. Long Range Identification Tracking (LRIT) solution.

Fupe was selected as one of test ASPs for Norway by the Norwegian Maritime Directorate. Fupe is also the test ASP for the Flag of Barbados and Sierra Leone. As a test ASP, Fupe is responsible for initial testing of ship terminals to verify their compliance with International Maritime Organization’s LRIT specifications.

“By supporting the DMR-800LRIT satellite terminal, Fupe is giving ship owners greater choice in their selection of LRIT compliant equipment” said John-Harry Edvardsen, Data and Telecom Manager at Fupe.

LRIT regulations came into force on January 1, 2008. Vessels found to be non-compliant with IMO specifications may be denied entry to territorial waters or ports and face significant fines. Information collected by LRIT Data Centers can be used by Flag authorities for vessel traffic monitoring, transport planning, locating vessels in distress and monitoring vessels involved in illegal activities.

The SkyWave LRIT system is built for use on the SkyWave IsatM2M network service, an enhanced mode of the globally-accepted Inmarsat D+ network.
