For vessels that operate in the Polar Regions, BlueTraker LRIT Arctic is the world’s only LRIT terminal capable of withstanding the extreme cold of this environment including Sea area A4. The terminal with its unique double shell housing resists accelerated cooling in extreme environments from the wind chill factor. Its smart engineering allows operation and even cold start at temperatures as low as -50° Celsius!
The following group of products are, or may be included in the solution
Fully integrated and robust design
BlueTraker LRIT is a fully integrated terminal with embedded GPS and an Iridium antenna, removing any need to connect additional external components for tracking purposes. All its components are packed inside a robust housing with IP68 environmental protection. This level of integration makes misapplication impossible and therefore protects sensitive ‘cable rich’ modular devices.
Pole-to-Pole coverage and optimises your running costs
BlueTraker LRIT terminal offers true global communication coverage through the Iridium Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellation, which is the only one offering Pole-to-Pole coverage, including the A4 sea area. BlueTraker LRIT terminal transmits Automatic Position Reports (APR) using Iridium’s efficient and cost-effective Short Burst Data (SBD) service.
Free full pre-conformance test
When installed on a ship, all LRIT terminals have to be tested for communication capabilities by an Application Service provider (ASP) and acquire Conformance Test Reports (CTR). In order to complete the test hassle free, the BlueTraker LRIT customers have the unique advantage of an absolutely free and full pre-conformance test.
A complete ship-borne LRIT solution
BlueTraker LRIT terminal is an easy-to-install device, installed above the deck and able to withstand the harshest weather conditions. It comes together with a 50m connection cable and all mounting accessories.
