Monday, March 09, 2009

SARS Corp. (OTCBB: SARO.OTC), a provider of technologies dedicated to the satellite-based management of fixed and mobile assets, together with its marketing partner, Securewest International, Inc., a maritime security and emergency response company, announced its agreement to integrate the SkyWave Mobile Communication Inc. Long Range Identification Tracking (LRIT) solution with the SARS asset tracking and management systems.

In addition, SARS and Securewest International have been selected as joint Test Application Service Providers (ASP) for certification of their respective asset tracking systems for the Flag Administrations of Kuwait, Mauritius, Australia, Bahamas, Gibraltar, United Kingdom, Bermuda, Norway, Turkey, St. Kitts and Nevis, Sierra Leone and Cook Islands (pending), which are responsible for enforcing maritime law in their respective jurisdictions. In 2008, SARS and Securewest International were awarded the contract for the provision of a National Data Centre (NDC) for vessels registered under the Flag Administrations of St. Kitts and Nevis.

LRIT regulations, which the IMO established to improve maritime security, 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, in addition to facing significant fines. As a Test ASP, SARS and Securewest International are responsible for (i) providing information to ship owners and operators, as well as Flag Administrations, and (ii) enabling testing to be carried out on ships to ensure LRIT compliance.
