BlueTraker® SSAS Arctic
World’s only SSAS terminal engineered for Arctic voyage! Cold start capable down to -50° Celsius!
The BlueTraker® SSAS Arctic terminal is a self-contained unit with pre-programmed tracking and security alerting functionalities. The unique double-shell housing with a ventilated layer between the two shells gives it an added protection against low temperatures and winds.
To survive severe Arctic conditions a distributed web of heating elements throughout the electronic circuitry keeps the terminal operational down to minus 50°C additionally, device can cold start from temperatures down from -50°C… All electronic and mechanical components specifically selected for low temperature operation! See the white paper on challenges of vessel tracking in sea area A4.
- Two security buttons to sound the alarm in case of an emergency situation.
- Pole to pole coverage through use of the Iridium Satellite network.
- Ability to withstand the harsh maritime conditions.
- Tracking and Alert Messaging
In addition to SOLAS security alert requirements, the BlueTraker SSAS device is capable of position data report transmissions for day-to-day tracking purposes. The ship’s position can be monitored on the service provider’s web tracking site.
- On board security alert systems are governed by various internationally agreed rules and regulations as promulgated by the IMO International Maritime Organization), as recommended by its’ associated sub – committees, principally the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC).
- To survive severe Arctic conditions a layer of heating elements throughout the electronic circuitry which keeps the terminal operational down to – 50°C.
- Smart Firmware provides safe thermostatic control enabling ‘Cold start Power-up’ at -50°C.
