ORBCOMM Vessel Monitoring System IDP-690

// DESCRIPTION

ORBCOMM’s Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) IDP-690 is pre-certified by the Pacific Island Forum Fisheries Agency, a cooperative organization that combats illegal fishing in the South Pacific, and includes many features to assist in maritime endeavors.

The rundown: The satellite communications device included in the VMS system uses the IDP-690 to connect to satellite data for vessel tracking and ship-to-shore communications anywhere in the world. The device allows for consistent and event-based reporting, GPS position reports, geofence alerts, system status reports, data logging and two-way email capabilities. The interface unit, the SVM-610, relays status information to the vessel operator via LED indicators. This information displays power status, terminal connection status, satellite connectivity and GPS availability. The SVM-610 can also connect to a computer through a serial port, or a connector by which a device that sends data, to allow for system diagnostics/updates and e-mail capabilities.

Report management: Periodic and event-based reporting are included with this VMS system. Messages are delivered periodically at pre-configured intervals. This information includes time, longitude, latitude, speed, course, GPS and satellite signal quality. Events-based reports include notifications that are sent when specific or multiple tampering events are detected. These can include power disconnection, GPS jamming, GPS and/or IDP blockage, among others.

Strengthen your de-fence: Geofences can be defined on the device in order to generate entry and exit notifications for virtually demarcated areas.

Remotely float your boat: Configuration and system updates can be configured remotely over the air in order to eliminate disruptions to fishing operations and costs associated with the deployment of field workers.
