many difficulties whit purchasing and implementation of VMS (Vessel
Monitoring System). Assist AB can help you with avoiding the
pitfalls. Call us and we can tell you more.
Vessels larger than 15 meters
shall be equipped with satellite based electronic surveillance system in all EU
countries. There are several transponders and several ready made systems for
central management of position data to buy on the market. Many investigations
have been made both comparing different satellite systems with each other but
also regarding security between different transponders.
An important point when
choosing transponders is the balance between security and functionality. If the
security is too high, maybe functionality like electronic logbook will not be
allowed. Too low security will on other hand result in opening for tampering
with the system.
Another important part is
that the information collected can be used and shared between the
authorities concerned. The coast guard might for example need to identify
vessels at sea, and will be helped with information of that this is a
fishing vessel when they spot an unidentified vessel. This might also assist
the security and control management at sea.
In most of the systems
there is a possibility to register alarms for certain events. Often missing
are the routines that describes what actions that has to be taken after
these alarms has been effected.
