The Japanese Coastguard has contracted Transas and its representative Marix k.k as Application Service Provider (ASP) for the National Data Centre (NDC). The NDC will be operational by 31st December 2008.
Transas has developed a complete range of Long Range Identification Tracking (LRIT) products and services for contracting governments and shipowners. The design of the Transas LRIT software allows a flexible and custom installation according to national requirements. This can range from a wholly outsourced service to a mixed architecture whereby Application Service Provider services are hosted by Transas yet the National Data Centre and data storage resides in the contracting government’s chosen location. Transas performs conformity testing for onboard LRIT terminals.
Today there are over 26 Flag States on the company’s test list.
