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”.

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.

A040-DP easyRESCUE-DIVEpro

Each diver has certainly wondered what happens if he gets separated from his “Buddy” or dive group and in addition has no orientation where the dive boat is.

The tiny portable transmitter unit easyRESCUE-DIVEpro can be worn on the vest during the dive. Don’t panic, it is water-resistant to more than 100 meters!

The unit is developed out of the AIS S.A.R.T. emergency beacon easyRESCUE-DIVE for safari boats as well as diving bases. The unit of each member of the diving group will be activated before diving and handed out with specific briefing “how to use”. A persistant position report will be send by every unit received by the diving boat or diving center. By means of position report the diving group could be tracked on water surface to be “insight”.

If the group appears out of sight of the diving boat, the diving master takes out his transmitter, unfolds the antenna and lift up the unit as high as possible. The diving boat will get the current position to drive by and pick up the whole group.

If the case described above occurs, on water surface the diver takes out his easyRESCUE-DIVEpro, unfolds the antenna, pushes the slider down and press the ALERT button. Via VHF radio the dive boat receives detailed information regarding the exact GPS position of the diver along with his/her Course Over Ground (COG) and Speed Over Ground (SOG) if he/she is in a current. This information is updated every minute. Just fix the unit at the carried along “ALERT BUOY” or reach you arm out of the water as high as possible.

Scenario as followed is running in the background:

The easyRESCUE-DIVEpro with its built-in GPS receiver will get a fix within the next 35 seconds after activation. With this fix the current GPS position is transmitted with a formal emergency telegram on two world wide standardize VHF frequencies.

Additional to the GPS position, which is updated every minute, data as “course over ground” and “speed over ground” are transmitted as well as an individual unit ID.

These data within this emergency telegram will be received by every AIS equipped vessel in the surrounding of the victim. Radiation range depends on the height of the receiving antenna. Range up to 10 nautical miles or more are possible.

Since 2007 for every commercial vessel of more than 300 BRT and/or 12 people crew/passenger having AIS system aboard is mandatory by law. Each year the number of pleasure boats using AIS system as well is still increasing. The pleasure boaters at least want to have all information regarding the commercial vessels.

All these vessels do receive the emergency telegram as a position report on the chart plotter or PC screen and can assist with fast and effective help.

A118 easyPOSALERT

Persistent locating where necessary!

The easyPOSALERT is a portable position transmitter which uses VHF technology.
The device enables the persistent locating and monitoring of moving objects within range.

Function:

The easyPOSALERT has a built-in GPS receiver. After manual activation the device transmits the current GPS position by means of VHF signals in a preset time interval. This position report is sent on customized VHF frequencies, so a “closed user group” may be arranged. Each unit of the easyPOS-ALERT can be personalized individually. In case of an emergency there is an alert function which transmits on regular frequencies receivable by everyone within range.

The easyPOSALERT is floatable and waterproof to a depth of 10m. The rechargeable batteries have a lifespan of 5 days, depending on the pre-set transmission interval. The transmission range of the easyPOSALERT is from about 10nm (10m height of receiving antenna) up to 40nm (air craft at 1000 ft).

The easyPOSALERT is especially suitable for race boats, ferry boats, pilot vessels, jet-skis, smaller fishing boats and charter boats. Fact is: the easyPOSALERT is needed where persistent locating and monitoring of moving objects becomes necessary.

What is necessary to run the easyPOSALERT?

Each object going to be monitored and located needs an easyPOSALERT. The charging station provides intelligent and ideal charging, which ensures the long lifespan of the batteries. The object-related data is programmed into the device by the customers administrator or by the manufacturer. Only a VHF receiver, the easyAIS, is needed to receive the customized signals of the easyPSOALERT. It is factory pre-set to the custom frequencies.

Geo-Fence

Special areas can be programmed into the unit where not to enter or not to leave. So called “Geo-Fence-Areas”.

Intelligent tamper-proof solution

If the unit will be stolen or tampered, an intelligent high tech solution will trigger a flashing LED to inform the vessels Captain as well as a special information message is send to base station immediately.

Transmission will run according to the world wide standardized AIS system (Automatic Identification System), but on special proprietary frequencies which are not used for AIS. The regular AIS radio traffic will be not disturbed or interfered by the position reports of the vmsTRACK units.

“Who and Where” for coastal security and fleet management

RangeTest_Tower_21

Vessels in Street of Malacca, Malaysia

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 send out on both regular AIS frequencies to reach every AIS receiver within transmission range of the vmsTRACK.

Individualization of vmsTRACK units

vmsTRACK_programmingtool

vmsTRACK programming tool

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 define. Each second up to 1 time per hour, everything is possible. As bigger the time gap is, as 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 realized by solar panel. This will continuously charge the transmitter.
