Pole Star SSAS Alert Advanced

Pole Star

The Pole Star SSAS Alert Advanced package offers the end user a complete and dedicated SSAS solution, integrating onboard hardware with the shore-based online management system.  It operates for both routine and specific incident monitoring, providing maritime crew & security team with real-time alerts and visibility of on-ship position and status.

Increased piracy attacks and terrorist incidents have elicited the need for improved ship security alert systems (SSAS).   Pole Star’s Alert Advanced SSAS system meets or exceeds all the requirements of the SOLAS* regulation XI-2/6 and associated performance standards, backed by Inmarsat’s renowned satellite network.

During a security alert, Alert Advanced provides you with essential situational awareness and decision-ready information. When the crew hit the panic button, the SSAS message is transmitted via the reliable Alert Advanced system to your designated recipients by email or SMS. Add, edit and delete recipients instantly, via the secure web-based application, without the need for a technician to go onboard. Alerts are fully customisable and can include a map, track-history, forecast weather and ship particular. In the event of a security situation, rapid response is vital. Fleet wide integration makes it possible to manage alerts in a single system irrespective of the make or manufacturer of the hardware installed aboard the vessel.
