SISCO's A-PASS® 6 Wireless Mobile Life Safety & Security Access Control System to be installed on 'Royal Princess'.

The Royal Princess is the first of two 1082 ft, 141,000-ton prototypes joining the next generation of the Princess fleet in June 2013.

The A-PASS® 6 system is comprised of multiple software modules and mobile wireless hand held readers that handle critical tasks relating to passenger and crew safety, security and accountability.  

According to the manufacturer, passenger boarding and de-boarding is fast, accurate and secure with the A-PASS® 6 Mobile Guard Station module.  Life Boat Tendering, Passenger Mustering, Immigration Clearance and others modules make up a total solution that is seamlessly integrated into the ship's operations.

The system allows shipboard management to account for everyone on board at any time with photo verification of the individual.  This process is crucial for identifying people and knowing who is on or off ship as well as accounting for them during drills, tendering and shore side operations in the event of a real emergency.  

The system is fully compliant with Coast Guard, IMO and SOLAS regulations and allows for expansion to meet future requirements and government regulations.
