A Sea Captain’s Device

A story on MariTrack, another solution to meet new requirements for ship security alerts and vessel monitoring. Although it primarily focuses on commercial vessels for the moment, I’m sure some of these solution will come to the private yachting market as well.
“It includes a Ship Security Alert System, which can transmit a distress message with a ship’s longitude, latitude and the time of day. The alert system is designed as a defense against piracy, which is still a huge problem in some parts of the world, Romey said. MariTrack also has a Vessel Monitoring Service, to track ships’ locations in specified waters. Not yet mandated but included in MariTrack is an automatic system that identifies ships as they approach one another, and a long-range system that tracks where ships have been since they left port.”
