Security Alert System for Yachts

KVH has developed a new system, eTrac, allowing crew to send out an emergency message containing realt-time position data. Other systems are availaible, but this complies with all new standards like SOLAS and has low lifetime cost.
“Sadly, the danger of hijacking by international terrorists or boarding by pirates is not limited to large commercial ships,” explained Ian Palmer, KVH’s vice president of satellite sales. “The ability to alert shore-based authorities instantly to any danger is critical to the safety of crews, passengers, harbors, and people on shore. With its global satellite communications capability, multiple ‘panic buttons’ and integrated GPS, the KVH eTrac SSAS is well-suited for this task.”
