The SAILOR 6120 mini-C SSAS builds on the successful legacy of the SAILOR TT-3000SSA System, which since its introduction in 2004 has proven its
worth in real world incidents, time and time again. Like its predecessor, the SAILOR 6120 mini-C SSAS is based around a, self-contained and sealed Inmarsat mini-C terminal, housing both antenna and transceiver. This design approach has proven to be rugged and reliable regardless of vessel type and with the terminal’s 50 channel GPS module and omni-directional antenna, satellite fix and position are ensured even under the most adverse conditions.
SAILOR 6120 mini-C SSAS Features
The multiple address functionality enables additional messages to be sent directly to, e.g. the vessel owner, operator or crew family, in addition to the required flag state and ship owner message in relation to the ISPS code. It is possible to have 6 seperate entries with up to 128 characters.
Re-configuration can be done remotely or by a SAILOR technician, and has been
made simpler, requiring no crew interaction. New configurations may be required when changing flag, where the SSAS alert address stored in the terminal needs to be updated. The Thrane 6194 Terminal Control Unit (TCU), is the key connection point to the system and brings new functionality to ease operation. The TCU has a range of LEDs that allow operators to quickly determine Inmarsat, GPS and program status. They are all usefull features if the SAILOR 6120 mini-C SSAS is also used as Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT) carrier. The TCU allows for up to 6 SSAS buttons to be connected and monitored seperatly.
