A193 vmsTRACK-PRO-CS

Real-Time vessel & object monitoring by VHF

The system allows persistent locating and monitoring of vessels and moving objects in a special area via VHF technologies. The vmsTRACK-PRO-CS is working with CSTDMA Class B transmission functionality. CSTDMA is the abbreviation for “Carrier Sense Time Division Multiple Access”, which is used for AIS Class B units. The vmsTRACK-PRO-CS operates on the principle “listen before talk”. If a transmission is due, the transceiver watches the dedicated slot and if there is no transmission in the slot from a Class A transceiver, then the CSTDMA unit starts transmission on its own in this slot.

Palm-sized for every request

The vmsTRACK-PRO-CS is a small portable “grab’n’go” position transmitter, which broadcasts in a pre-set time interval via VHF radio frequencies. The unit is ideal for coastal fishing fleet, movement monitoring of harbour vessels, small target tracking and pleasure boaters tracking. It is suitable for fishermen, vessels, leisure boats, ski jets, harbour crafts, pilot vessels, etc. The system is expandable to a full target management system. With the usage of the vmsTRACK-PRO-CS real-time-tracking system, a radar-less traffic monitoring system for economic application is possible. By means of the transmission, information about current GPS position as well as curse and speed over ground of the object, real-time-tracking and monitoring of  objects is possible for a base station. Such a base station only needs a special tuned receiver unit to get these position reports, if customized frequencies are used. The creation of a “closed user group” is possible with such a system, in which only the base station has the permission to look into, thanks to these customized frequencies. The vmsTRACK-PRO-CS is also able to run on regular AIS frequencies which makes a special tuned receiver needless.

Geo fencing possible

Special areas can be programmed into the unit (not to enter or not to leave). They are called “Geo-Fence-Areas”. The vmsTRACK-PRO-CS unit gives visual alerting by flashing LED if this geo-fence-function is triggered and a special information message is immediately sent to the base station. Only the base station will be able to interprete this message.

Intelligent tamper-proof solution

If the unit is stolen or tampered, an intelligent high tech solution will trigger a flashing LED to inform the vessel’s Captain. A special message is also sent to the base station. This special message is sent within the normal position report, but only the base station can decode it.

“Who and Where” for coastal security and fleet management

The real-time-knowledge of “who and where?” is very important in administration of coastal fishing fleets, as well as in coastal boarder security issues. By transmission of special names and unit IDs, “friend or foe” identifying is possible.

Additional emergency distress button

The small vmsTRACK has got an additional emergency distress button. By triggering the alert function, additional to the regular position report on special frequency, according to customer’s specification and with approval of the national authority, an official emergency message will be sent out on both regular AIS frequencies to reach every AIS receiver within transmission range of the vmsTRACK.

Individualization of vmsTRACK units

The vmsTRACK units can be individualized by means of programming ship name, type of vessel as well as area of activity into the unit for transmission. The pre-set time interval is free to definee: each second up to 1 time per hour, everything is possible. The bigger the time gap is, the longer the battery capacity will be. E. g. once per minute will last for a couple of days. The power supply for the vmsTRACK unit on a small fishing vessel can be done by solar panel. This will continuously charge the transmitter.

Basic needs fulfilled

This small device is waterproof to a depth of 10 meters.

Different power supply solutions possible

There are 3 ways of using the vmsTRACK-PRO-CS with reference to power supply.

  1. Charging station Staying independent by own rechargeable batteries going to be charged by own charging station (A122 Tamperproof & Powersocket)
  2. Board net Fixed solution by means of connection to 9-32VDC board net power supply. This will give permanent intelligent recharging (special modification of charging station on demand).
  3. Solar panel Persistent external power supply with permanent intelligent recharging. This will be a fully self contained solution for permanent operation.

What is needed to run the vmsTRACK?

Each object going to be monitored needs a vmsTRACK. The charging station provides intelligent and ideal charging which ensures the long lifespan of the batteries. The vmsTRACK is factory pre-set to a custom frequency for “closed user groups”.

Approval

Our easyRESCUE Rescue Transmitters have a basic approval and do not have to be registered anymore!

The new easyRESCUE-PRO3 combines the 3 most effective alerting and locating systems, AIS, DSC and 121.5MHz homing, in one unit – just to make rescue missions as fast and efficient as possible.

Via AIS emergency message all vessels with AIS receiver aboard in the vicinity of up to 15 nm and more around the victim, including the mother ship, are informed about the distress situation. Updated every minute, this alert message contains current GPS position as well as COG (course over ground) and SOG (speed over ground) of the victim in a drift. These information enable every crew to assist with the rescue.

Via DSC distress call up to 8 different vessels get a first alerting call within seconds after the AIS MOB easyRESCUE-PRO3 was activated in closed loop. The MMSI numbers can be pre-programmed into the beacon. After the GPS fix is given, a second DSC distress call is send out in “closed loop”, containing GPS position of the victim. For the next 10 minutes the “closed loop” crews are able to acknowledge the incoming distress call. If the easyRESCUE-PRO3 receives no acknowledgement, the unit switches automatically into “open loop”, transmitting an “all ships call” to everybody into the GMDSS emergency network. This “all ships call” can be relayed by commercial vessels to forward the distress call to a coastal MRCC (maritime rescue coordination center) which are the sole stations to acknowledge the „open loop“.

Via 121.5MHz a so called “homing signal” is transmitted. With the respective receiving and bearing equipment the right direction to the victim can be found out of 3 nm distance. In situation when there is “no sight” to the victim this technology comes up with a high benefit. The closer the vessel is to the victim, the more precisely the life-saving bearing can be done.

The parallel activation of all 3 technologies is done automatically with rip cord and magnetic switch, as soon as the automatic life jacket inflates when submerged. The intended life jacket has to have a special pocket inside that was developed specially for the AIS MOB easyRESCUE-PRO3.

  • Automatic activation by water contact
  • Automatic activation by rip cord meachanism with magnetic switch
  • Simultanious automatic activation of DSC distress call

Approval

Our easyRESCUE Rescue Transmitters have a basic approval and do not have to be registered anymore!

The easyRESCUE-PRO (BT) rescue transmitter has an integrated Bluetooth-LE module. This allows easily and fast the programming of the up to 8 different MMSI numbers in the rescue transmitter. Get the best of both to alert vessels about situation of distress If a „MAN OVER BOARD“ situation happens, you need to keep the victim in sight. It is essential for his survival. The easyRESCUE-PRO has been developed based on the well-known and approved AIS S.A.R.T. device easyRESCUE. In addition to the AIS locating functionality, the easyRESCUE-PRO has got another built-in VHF alert: DSC distress call (MOB) By means of DSC distress call, other vessels having DSC controllers aboard are able to provide support as a potential emergency responder. It‘s a lightweight personal locating device which is fixed to clothing or lifejackets and which can be mounted onto a pole for use on life rafts.

Function

Upon activation, the easyRESCUE-PRO device starts transmitting position reports via AIS, providing the current GPS position along with COG, SOG and its individual unit ID. The victim‘s position is updated every minute and transmitted 8 times per minute for at least 96 hours, depending on the DSC closed loop distress acknowledgment. Therefore the crew of the ship will know exactly the victim‘s position, as well as every other ship with an AIS receiver or DSC controller within range. When in emergency, AIS messages are transmitted. It triggers a safety related message on every AIS chart plotter with a worldwide standardized symbol. By means of DSC distress call (MOB), this signal can be received by the GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety Service), which is installed on numerous vessels and shore stations. The MRCC (Maritime Rescue Coordination Center) is part of the GMDSS (DSC) network. The easyRESCUE-PRO starts sending “closed loop” DSC distress alerts when activated. This “closed loop” message is addressed to the own ship of the victim. Up to this time no global alarm is initiated.  The crew on the own ship can decide to rescue the victim on this own and send out a DSC acknowledgment to the easyRESCUE-PRO, which stops sending DSC messages. In addition, the easyRESCUE-PRO offers the possibility of programming up to eight mother ships ID numbers (MMSI) into the device to those users, who often need to change a vessel like pilots, SAR crew members, etc. Any vessel within the “closed loop” group (up to eight vessels) can acknowledge these distress telegrams, which lead to a termination of the DSC distress calls send out by easyRESCUE-PRO. If the “closed loop” distress telegrams are not acknowledged, the easyRESCUE-PRO starts sending „open loop DSC distress calls“ (MOB) to all ships. Now the shore station or other commercial ship stations nearby can acknowledge this message and the easyRESCUE-PRO will also cease transmitting DSC. The global rescue operation will go on.

What is necessary to run the easyRESCUE-PRO?

The easyRESCUE-PRO needs no additional accessory. The device is ready to use, grab‘n‘go! An AIS receiver and a DSC controller are strongly recommended as a radio equipment on the own ship. Only then a fast and effective rescue operation can be conducted by the own crew.

HALI

Satellite AIS – reliable solution with HALI

The new HALI transponder, a collaboration of maritime industrial leaders ORBCOMM, POLESTAR and WEATHERDOCK, enables a complete situational picture of global vessel activity.

Small vessel tracking is not the latest development which defines a wheel in a new way. There are several solutions existing in the market for such requirements. But there is one big problem all they have:

If the distance is getting higher and the transponder becomes out of reception range of coastal base stations, the vessels are not traceable anymore. The monitoring head quarter doesn’t have a clue where the objects of interest are until they get back into coastal coverage.

Satellite AIS is not the same as Satellite AIS

Today’s Long-Range-AIS via satellite is not always reliable due to known congestion problems in high traffic areas.

In opposite to those, via HALI combines terrestrial and satellite AIS data capability with two-way satellite technology to deliver reliable vessel communication via over 40 satellites and ORBCOMM’s M2M data network ensuring vessels are always tracked for anywhere in the world. With such a bidirectional handshake between HALI transponders and ORBCOMM SATs it will be sure that AIS data are transmitted and received safely. HALI units switch automatically into Satellite AIS mode in the moment they left the coastal coverage zone.

Collaboration of industrial big players

HALI is made by Weatherdock, in collaboration with ORBCOMM and POLESTAR. Long term AIS experience meets huge satellite know-how. The result is an over-the-edge tri-mode tracking device which will be distributed by POLESTAR and their sales channels all over the world.

Cost-effective and reliable

HALI enables authorities such as Coast Guard, to improve Search-and-Rescue-Missions, enhance maritime domain awareness and increase surveillance of marine protected areas.

The included SOS functionality sends out a distress message instantly to be received at SAR facilities.

Product information

Function

The Class B unit easyRX2S receives AIS ClassA and ClassB according to ClassB standard.

The easyRX2S performs a lot of usefull features:
By means of USB port connection to PC or Laptop is possible. With contained software it can be choosen between 38400 or 4800 Baud data rate. Function activity is shown by 8 LED’s.  The easyRX2S is able to interpret incomming AIS data for CPA alert or AIS S.A.R.T. ermergency messages. Additional the easyRX2S devices can be used as power surce for external alerting devices. All received AIS data can be stored with internal SD Card recorder. With the build-in multiplexer input 3 devices with different baud rate can be pluged to the easyRX2S units. At least the external cable harness gives the possibility for outsourcing functionaly like “change into silent mode ” or “PAN PAN emergency call” by switch.

easyRX2S and gadgets that fit together

Your PC has to work at least on WIN XP SP2 and screen resolution  1024*768 for configuration. Plotter or PC software have to be intermateable to AIS to display incoming AIS data on screen.

What is needed?

What is needed to run the easyRX2S?

The ClassB device needs a separate GPS antenna and an own VHF antenna. As an alternative you can run the easyRX2S with the VHF antenna switch easySPLIT-OCB for using your existing VHF antenna. A separate GPS antenne is still needed. An other alternative is the VHF/GPS combi antenna.

Get the best of both to alert vessels about situation of distress

If a „MAN OVER BOARD“ situation happens, you need to keep the victim in sight. It is essential for his survival.

The easyRESCUE-PRO has been developed based on the well-known and approved AIS S.A.R.T. device easyRESCUE. In addition to the AIS locating functionality, the easyRESCUE-PRO has got another built-in VHF alert: DSC distress call (MOB)

By means of DSC distress call, other vessels having DSC controllers aboard are able to provide support as a potential emergency responder. It‘s a lightweight personal locating device which is fixed to clothing or lifejackets and which can be mounted onto a pole for use on life rafts.

Function

Upon activation, the easyRESCUE-PRO device starts transmitting position reports via AIS, providing the current GPS position along with COG, SOG and its individual unit ID.
The victim‘s position is updated every minute and transmitted 8 times per minute for at least 96 hours, depending on the DSC closed loop distress acknowledgment. Therefore the crew of the ship will know exactly the victim‘s position, as well as every other ship with an AIS receiver or DSC controller within range.

When in emergency, AIS messages are transmitted. It triggers a safety related message on every AIS chart plotter with a worldwide standardized symbol.

By means of DSC distress call (MOB), this signal can be received by the GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety Service), which is installed on numerous vessels and shore stations. The MRCC (Maritime Rescue Coordination Center) is part of the GMDSS (DSC) network.

The easyRESCUE-PRO starts sending “closed loop” DSC distress alerts when activated. This “closed loop” message is addressed to the own ship of the victim. Up to this time no global alarm is initiated.  The crew on the own ship can decide to rescue the victim on this own and send out a DSC acknowledgment to the easyRESCUE-PRO, which stops sending DSC messages. In addition, the easyRESCUE-PRO offers the possibility of programming up to eight mother ships ID numbers (MMSI) into the device to those users, who often need to change a vessel like pilots, SAR crew members, etc.

Any vessel within the “closed loop” group (up to eight vessels) can acknowledge these distress telegrams, which lead to a termination of the DSC distress calls send out by easyRESCUE-PRO. If the “closed loop” distress telegrams are not acknowledged, the easyRESCUE-PRO starts sending „open loop DSC distress calls“ (MOB) to all ships. Now the shore station or other commercial ship stations nearby can acknowledge this message and the easyRESCUE-PRO will also cease transmitting DSC. The global rescue operation will go on.

What is necessary to run the easyRESCUE-PRO?

The easyRESCUE-PRO needs no additional accessory. The device is ready to use, grab‘n‘go! An AIS receiver and a DSC controller are strongly recommended as a radio equipment on the own ship. Only then a fast and effective rescue operation can be conducted by the own crew.
