The IMO’s Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) has approved Iridium as a provider of GMDSS satellite services. In early 2020, these GMDSS services, hereunder: Distress Alert, Safety Voice, and Maritime Safety Information (MSI) will be available via the LT-3100S GMDSS system, a terminal developed by Lars Thrane A/S.
OceanLink software allows for geo-zoned commercial fishing boundaries to be created and monitored for violations. Fishing Boats must be equipped with Lars Thrane LT-3100L /S system or other GPS reporting hardware compatible with Datalink's OceanLink platform.
If an LT-3100 / S is not installed Datalink recommends the Iridium GO with fixed installation kit.
Where government regulations limit catch stock and volume, OceanLink can link to on-board reporting apps such as Vericatch’s FisheriesApp. Reports are processed and sent over Iridium Satellites to land based host programs.
