KVH’s Covert Alert System

New regulation has triggered KVH to highlight their integrated communication system that uses the Inmarsat mini-C communication system and real-time GPS position reporting to alert when in distress. Although they are using terrorist threats to persuade commercial shippers to buy this product, this solution could be useful for private yachting as well.
“The eTrac SSAS is very easy to use – just press one of the two panic buttons to instantly send an alert containing such information as vessel identification, time, and precise location. The rugged KVH eTrac SSAS stands less than 6″ high and weighs only 2.4 lbs and can be installed easily. The fully integrated system contains a transceiver, antenna, and a 12-channel GPS receiver.”
