                 Maritime mobile INMARSAT-C installation ( LRIT, SSAS )

  • The international organization of Inmarsat for already many years offers services of global satellite communication. In total a few years ago by means of group of high-orbital companions Inmarsat served mainly the sea market.
  • Inmarsat was set up in 1979 by the International Maritime  Organization (IMO) to enable ships to stay in constant touch with shore  or to call for help in an emergency, no matter how far out to sea.
  • Today our customers are found in many different sectors – but they  are typically businesses and organisations that need to communicate  where terrestrial telecom networks are unreliable or simply cannot  reach.
  • The Inmarsat-C system provides telex communication and low-speed data transmission (600 bits/sec.) on the basis of a method of storage and the subsequent transmission via the omnidirectional antenna. The Inmarsat-C also ensures functioning of e-mail via the specific earth-based station, using the X.25 and X.400 protocols. The terminal can incorporate or be connected to GPS receivers.

               long-range identification and tracking (LRIT)

  • The long-range identification and tracking (LRIT) of ships was established as an international system on 19 May 2006 by the International Maritime Organization
   (IMO) as resolution MSC.202(81). This resolution amends chapter V of  the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS),
    regulation 19-1 and binds all governments which have contracted to the  IMO.
  • The LRIT regulation will apply to the following ship types engaged on international voyages:
     All passenger ships including high-speed craft,
     Cargo ships, including high-speed craft of 300 gross tonnage and above, and
     Mobile offshore drilling units.

  • These ships must report their position to their flag administration  at least four times a day. Most vessels set their existing satellite  communications systems to automatically make these reports. Other  contracting governments may request information about vessels in which  they have a legitimate interest under the regulation.
  • The LRIT system consists of the already installed (generally)  shipborne satellite communications equipment, communications service  providers (CSPs), application service providers (ASPs), LRIT data  centres, the LRIT data distribution plan and the International LRIT data  exchange. Certain aspects of the performance of the LRIT system are  reviewed or audited by the LRIT coordinator acting on behalf of the IMO  and its contracting governments.
  • Some confuse the functions of LRIT with that of AIS (Automatic Identification System),  a collision avoidance system also mandated by the IMO, which operates  in the VHF radio band, with a range only slightly greater than  line-of-sight. (See AIS) While AIS was originally designed for  short-range operation as a collision avoidance and navigational aid, it  has now been shown to be possible to receive AIS signals by satellite in  many, but not all, parts of the world. This is becoming known as S-AIS  and is completely different from LRIT. The only similarity is that AIS  is also collected from space for determining location of vessels, but  requires no action from the vessels themselves except they must have  their AIS system turned on. LRIT requires the active, willing  participation of the vessel involved, which is, in and of itself, a very  useful indication as to whether the vessel in question is a lawful  actor. Thus the information collected from the two systems, S-AIS and  LRIT, are mutually complementary, and S-AIS clearly does not make LRIT  superfluous in any manner. Indeed, because of co-channel interference  near densely populated or congested sea areas satellites are having a  difficult time in detecting AIS from space in those areas. Fixes are  under development by several organizations, but how effective they will  be remains to be seen.

                Ship Security Alert System (SSAS)

  • The Ship Security Alert System (SSAS) is one safety measure for  strengthening ship security and subduing acts of piracy and/or terrorism  against shipping.
    Widely Acknowledged as a part of the International  Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS code), the  Ship Security Alert System (SSAS)
    complements the International Maritime  Organization (IMO)’s attempts to increase maritime vessel security.
  • According to the information of International Maritime Organization  (IMO) the number of seamen injured and deceased due to pirates’
    attacks  have increased in recent years. In order to provide security of the crew  and passengers of ships in December 2002 IMO has introduced
    amendments  to the International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea SOLAS-74 as  related to Ship Security Alert Systems (instruction SOLAS XI-2/6).
