Iridium-based SSAS from SAILOR DNV Approved

Thursday, May 06, 2004
The recently launched Ship Security Alert System (SSAS) by SAILOR using the Iridium System has now been approved by Det Norske Veritas (DNV), meeting all requirements for Ship Security Alert Systems as specified in the amendments to SOLAS, chapter XI, Annex 6 (Dec. 2002).

The unique features of the SAILOR’s Iridium SSAS solution is the fact that the SAILOR SC4000 Iridium terminal at the same time can be used for standard Iridium features, such as voice and data communications, while still fulfilling all necessary SSAS requirements. The SSAS add-on feature is made possible thanks to a dedicated SSAS Box to the well-known SAILOR SC4000 Iridium terminal. When one of the up to four Alert Buttons is activated, an SMS-based alert is generated and transmitted through the SAILOR SC4000 Iridium terminal. The alert includes the identification and position of the vessel as well as time and date. The alert is delivered as an e-mail or an SMS (to another Iridium terminal) to pre-defined recipients. The alert is transmitted continuously at a pre-defined interval until de-activated.
