EMA Group and Astra Paging Ltd combine Terrestrial, GPRS and Satellite vessel positions to offer worldwide fleet tracking. You can keep using existing VT Explorer application you have been using until now.
Current industry needs
Shipping companies and ship owners expect high data availability as they are being pushed by their customers to provide complete track of their shipping services to clients requiring minimized shipping costs. Special purpose working boat owners feel the most pressure as operating hours do not come cheap.
Terrestrial, GPRS and Satellite data merging
Adding a dedicated BlueTraker® SatAIS transponder next to existing AIS device on board offers you the possibility to use existing terrestrial tracking when inside VHF coverage, GPRS when in coastal area with no VHF coverage and Satellite tracking on open seas.
Simple and straight forward
BlueTraker® SatAIS transponder installation only demands a simple power supply connection any local maintenance provider can perform. So you are up and running in the fastest time possible. We will take care of the data to be served to you and your VT Explorer application will automatically display your vessel positions.
What are business benefits we offer to you
Complete vessel's voyage track
Having terrestrial position data, combined with 5 min position data when inside GPRS coverage and adjustable position data frequency when on Satellite on open seas, allows you to have a complete vessel's voyage track covered. Position reporting frequency can be adjusted according to your needs.
Data for incidents and strange situations investigation
In case a detailed information about vessel's track is needed, we can provide you with a High Definition Data Request (HRDR) report, containing all positions logged by BlueTraker® SatAIS (position data every 15 min or more often), during a defined time frame. Reports can be used as additional proof for insurance cases or other usages of your interest.
