BlueTraker HRDR function

HRDR which stands for a High Resolution Data Request is a command that can be sent from the Fisheries Monitoring Centre (FMC) to the BlueTraker terminal and is a request for more detailed positional information about a vessel over a given period of time.

Suspected transshipment? Use BlueTraker’s HRDR function to find out now!

HRDR which stands for a High Resolution Data Request is a command  that  can be sent from the Fisheries Monitoring Centre (FMC) to the BlueTraker terminal and is a request for more detailed positional information about a vessel over a given period of time.

The feature allows the FMC operators to see in greater detail the movements of a vessel at sea. This can be particularly useful in instances where operators feel that there are potential regulation infringements E.G. Transshipment.

In Figure 1, Vessel A is on the high seas and passes suspiciously close toVessel B.  The FMC suspects that transshipment has taken place, so a HRDR command is issued; data is immediately transmitted through the satellite network allowing the FMC to make a  decision  upon  any  further  action  required  (e.g.  penalties  for  the  vessels).

HRDR requests are an embedded function of BlueTraker terminal and can be sent over multiple channels (satellite or GPRS). If you want to find out more about this and the other embedded functions of BlueTraker terminal then please get in contact with us.


‘World Class’ Ship Builder chooses ‘World Class’ Tracking Device: BlueTraker LRIT Arctic

Polarcus needs a ‘Polar-capable’ solution for their LRIT needs.

Polarcus which has a fleet of seismic vessels with the very distinctive and the  innovative ULSTEIN X-BOW® choose BlueTraker LRIT Artic for their long range  tracking needs. Polarcus ships travel the world and need to be assured that wherever they voyage on the planet, they can let people know where they are. BlueTraker LRIT Arctic which uses Iridium satellite communication for complete 100% global coverage lets  them  do this: even in the Polar Regions.

BlueTraker LRIT Arctic has the ability to withstand the extreme temperatures experienced in these areas and is the only device tested and capable of doing so! In these hostile environments any exposed electronics needs to be able to cope with the extreme wind-chill factor, temperatures as low as -50°C and the ability to restart in subzero temperatures should the main power go out (which is not an unlikely occurrence in these extreme temperatures).

BlueTraker engineers understood the difficulties in providing tracking in areas like the A4 sea area. They rose to the challenge to design innovative solutions such as the double – shell housing, integrated heating element and components specifically designed to withstand the cold to survive and thrive in this environment.

If your vessels travel the world and need to assuretheir long range tracking needs then contactBlueTraker or click here to see how we might help.
