Thuraya unveils SatTrack web-based service for its maritime clients
Thuraya, the UAE-based mobile satellite services company, has unveiled SatTrack – a secure, reliable and affordable web-based service that facilitates sustainable fishing practices, improved crew welfare and safety, better fleet visibility and management, and also onboard real time condition monitoring.
Thuraya partnered with FrontM, a UK-based developer of software applications, to roll out SatTrack for vessels and fleets serviced by the Thuraya MarineStar Solution (supporting voice, tracking and monitoring).
A low-cost turnkey subscription-based service, SatTrack enables MarineStar users stay in command and gain vital market advantage, while ensuring compliance with national and international fishing laws and regulations.
The online system displays the information reported from onboard MarineStar terminals on a user-friendly dashboard.
The system can create and monitor geo-fences, produce detailed maps, customised alerts, weather and position reports at preset intervals based on user requirements.
SatTrack extends the GPIO functionality of MarineStar, which supports third-party integrations.
By monitoring asset activities, owners and operators are able to make critical decisions efficiently, resulting in huge cost savings.
SatTrack also enables whitelisting and blacklisting of call numbers, effectively putting checks on the expenses accrued by crews.
