The Furuno Felcom 19 Inmarsat C Mobile Earth Stations (MES) provide SSAS and LRIT support functionality.
The FELCOM19 terminal is compatible with LRIT applications. It features SSAS capability with optional SSAS alert units. A wide variety of communication schemes available, including telex, FAX, e-mail, EGC (non-GMDSS), and Data reporting/polling. A GPS receiver is incorporated, and its black-box configuration allows for flexible installation.
The IC-307 SSAS (Ship Security Alert System) Alert Unit connects to the Inmarsat-C MES FELCOM 15/FELCOM 18 or the Inmarsat Mini-C FELCOM 16/FELCOM 19 for the purpose of alerting specified addresses (for example, your ship’s company) that your ship is under attack by intruders. The SOLAS Resolution XI-2/6 requires vessels of 500 GT or more constructed before 01 July 2004 to install an SSAS.
