Ship Security Alert Systems (SSAS)

Standalone SSAS

SSAS is a 'PREMIUM' dedicated SOLAS X1.2.6 type approved standalone system that operates on the new INMARSAT IsatDataPro (IDP) satellite network. Designed to exceed regulations with the addition of an internal backup battery module, on board test functions, up to two separate alert zones and GPS jamming notification.

New installations come inclusive of all cabling and alert button requirements. If upgrading from legacy D+ SSAS systems, operators can take advantage of utilising existing SSAS cable runs, reducing upgrade or consolidation deployment and avoiding any technician charges.

SSAS Alert Service

SSAS is automatically integrated with our OTiS software that will receive and direct all Ship Security Alerts to the company security officer, competent authorities, regional co-ordination centres, high risk patrols and or flag authorities via priority email and SMS . By integrating your SSAS into OTiS there is no need to have multiple recipient addresses stored and maintained at terminal end. Furthermore OTiS will be able to configure and control SSAS terminal tests in a supervisory status, reducing time and resources during periodical maintenance. Clients will also benefit from unlimited alert recipients and the ability to remotely reset terminal in alert.

SSAS Tracking services

Tracking is a standard provision with our alert service. SSAS automatically transmits a daily system report inclusive of position, course and speed. These reports can be increased to provide a vessel tracking service. The frequency of position reports can be automatically adjusted from once a day down to every 15 minutes depending on individual tracking or monitoring needs. The tracking reports are instantly displayed via our online tracking and information software, OTiS.

SSAS Online software

OTiS instantly displays security alerts and automatic position reports sent from the SSAS and referenced against real time location based information to provide users with a detailed view of a vessel's movements and performance with configurable email notifications. OTiS also correlates meteorological observations, forecasts, tropical storm warnings and piracy activity against vessel positions serving a complete fleet tracking and optimisation solution. The comprehensive security alert module manages alert messages and recipient lists as well as simplified testing functions with audit trails.

SSAS Transceiver

SSAS includes the new Skywave IDP 600 series terminal which uses the two-way Inmarsat IsatData Pro satellite service and delivers up to 10,000 bytes to the device and up to 6,400 bytes from the device
