Keeping a Grip on Where They Are

Press Release
Monday, April 15, 2013

Pole Star Space Applications' Marine Asset Tracker (MAT) 2.0 monitors mixed fleets of tugs, barges, rigs & other assets; helps owners manage fleet-wide operations.

MAT 2.0 offers a brand new software platform with a sleek user-interface, support for Globalstar, Thuraya and IsatData Pro satellite networks, a range of new satellite tracking devices, flexible service plans and intelligent realtime reporting options.

Built on Pole Star’s brand new software platform, Purplefinder Pro, MAT 2.0 delivers an enhanced user experience. The software features intuitive fullscreen Google maps and marine charts, dynamic vessel history trails, graphical weather and zone and overlays, interactive ship tiles and S-AIS data in partnership with ORBCOMM. In addition, users will be able to upload key documents and ship images, link directly to Seaweb and subscribe to event-based and summary notifications.

“It’s not just the user interface that’s evolved,” commented Andrew Peters, Chief Executive Officer. “We’ve redeveloped the platform from the ground up so that it works the same way our users do.”

MAT 2.0 introduces support for hardware on the Globalstar, Thuraya and IsatData Pro satellite networks. As a result, Pole Star has added a host of new tracking devices to their range, from low-cost self-powered devices ideal for tracking unpowered marine assets, to sophisticated devices that deliver intelligent realtime reporting at a lower cost than previously possible. “Each of the satellite networks we support offers unique capabilities and coverage, and we’re pleased to pass that choice on to our customers,” said Jeff Douglas, Chief Technology Officer.

“New to MAT 2.0, and indeed to Pole Star, is the introduction of ‘intelligent’ reporting which automatically adjusts a vessel’s reporting rate based on its status,” he continues. “This means, for example, that we can reduce a vessel’s reporting rate when it stops moving, giving our customers the benefit of high-rate reporting when the vessel is at sea, while minimising costs when it’s in port.”
