Nautical Control Solutions (NCS) announced an extension to the FuelTrax suite, providing the vessel crew with email access from any location worldwide. The new email capability is enabled through the Iridium satellite services, providing global satellite communications for the vessel-based FuelTrax fuel management system.
FuelTrax email uses the same advanced compression techniques for text based email and spreadsheets. Data is highly compressed and encrypted, providing quick, efficient and secure data transmission, and allowing attachments up to 500KB. Once email is received, it is decrypted and decompressed, formatted into the appropriate email format, and routed to the intended recipient.
