IMO Resolution MSC.202(81)
LRIT, or Long Range Identification and Tracking was adopted by the IMO in May of 2006. It was also included in SOLAS chapter V. All passenger ships including cargo ships, mobile offshore drilling units, high-speed craft, including high-speed craft at 300 gross tonnage or greater, are vessels that are subject to this requirement.
The Case for a Standalone LRIT
The SAILOR 6130 mini-C LRIT provides cost conscious and reliable LRIT compliance, with simple installation, so you can remain confident that you will meet all of the required standards. The satellite terminal comes complete with everything you need, straight out of the box. It arrives standard with a 30M long connection cable, but this can be upgraded to a 200M cable, if required.
Optional Terminal Control Unit (TCU)
The SAILOR 6130 mini-C LRIT has a great optional feature, the Thrane 6194 Terminal Control Unit (TCU). This is a key connection point to make operations easier. The TCU gives you access to new functionality to help with determining the operational status of your system towards your flag ASP and other physical inspections, with a range of LED indicators to tell operators the status of your program, as well as your Inmarsat log-in, GPS location fix, and power.
Certifications & Approvals
The SAILOR 6130 mini-C LRIT has been approved by both Inmarsat & the major flag ASP state administrators. Functional requirements for LRIT of ships are described in the IMO Circular MSC.1/Circ.1307: “Guidance on the survey and certification of compliance of ships”. This terminal is also in full compliance with the requirements for performance laid out in IMO Resolution MSC.263(84).
