Vessel Current GPS Report Generated Over EMail By HQs Shore-Side User 24X7X365

When Pirates Get Onboard

It’s been noticed worldwide that many times, due to pirates managing to get onboard vessels while in the HRAs, vessels are completely lost from the radars…First thing pirates do is to completely destroy/take down vessel’s communications, including all onboard Inmarsat, Iridium and AIS systems.

… and Inmarsat Can’t Track Offline Vessel’ SatCom Systems

In this very unfortunate incident, Inmarsat has to be notified about a possible piracy attack, in order to trace a vessel, in order to check with their NOC and trace ship’s communications. But it’s very late at that moment usually, as ship’s satcom systems are down by pirates onboard, thus vessel cannot be traced…

For all ASE Marisatcom Iridium Citadel anti-piracy versions, Shore-side shipping company’s HQ PIC, no matter if located at the office or on the other side of the planet, for as long as has internet connectivity and an email client, can remotely request their vessel’s current position + heading, speed and coordinates.

to get vessel’s Current GPS Report.

In such unfortunate incidents, it is not late for vessels/fleet equipped with the ASE Marisatcom Iridium Citadel anti-piracy solution. All a shipping company’s Shore-side Security PICs has to do is to generate a vessel’s Current GPS Report, including heading, speed and coordinates.

The ASE Marisatcom Iridium Citadel anti-piracy solution delivers numerous security benefits to both:

  • people onboard vessels while transiting the HRAs and,
  • vessel’s shipping company’s HQs colleagues

Shore-side Security PICs can perform various remote tasks by email for their vessel/fleet’s equipped with an ASE Marisatcom Iridium Citadel anti-piracy solution.

So provided the onboard ASE Citadel hidden Iridium terminal is switched-on,  the shore-side Security PIC will generate vessel’s Current GPS Report, including heading, speed and coordinates.

Sample ASE Marisatcom Hidden Iridium Citadel Anti-Piracy Vessel Generated GPS Message Report Delivered To HQs EMail Address

Shore-side HQs’ email address gets automatically an email message containing the below vessel info:

The ASE Marisatcom Hidden Iridium Citadel Anti-Piracy solution includes a POTS Phone (with/w.o. a Lockable Cabinet depending on the ASE version). Vessel's ASE Citadel onboard user simply types *911 on the connected analogue RJ11 POTS Phone that is installed in the Citadel room. A triple-beep tone on the ASE hiddel citadel POTS phone provides indication that the message was transmitted. The emergency GPS report alert will be sent as an SMS email to the shipping company's HQs email address. Email message contains: vessel's: Date/Time that the GPS report was generated, ASE Iridium Phone Number, Vessel Name, Coordinates, Heading, Speed, Number Of Iridium Satellites In View and Date/time of Display Fix

Notes:
• Vessel Name and Send-Message-To-email-address must have been configured by the user during/shortly after ASE ComCenter installation.
• The alert will NOT be sent if:
º an email address has not been configured.
º the ASE ComCenter is switched off*
º the ASE ComCenter link to the satellites is not available*

* To check the health of your onboard ASE ComCenter at any vessel for your entire fleet (ASE unit is on, has link to the satellites, etc.):

  1. simply run (from the comfort of your email client) an ASE Remote Periodic GPS Report, between 30 minutes and 1 week.
  2. if you judge you don’t want to run the health report (say when your vessel/fleet is out of the HRA), simply remotely Deactivate the Periodic GPS Report.
