Vessel Monitoring System (VMS)

BlueTraker VMS System is a robust, cost effective and intelligent solution for your vessel monitoring needs. It is the only solution that provides true global coverage and comes with many unique features. One of those features and probably the most important; it offers the abilty to adapt to the needs of the end customer.

VMS collects vessel positions using GNSS satellite signals and sends them together with speed, bearing and optional BlueSenz sensor data to the TDS communication server. BlueTraker VMS Terminal intelligently transmits data via either the GSM/GPRS terrestrial network or the Iridium satellite network at predefined intervals. The telematic data aggregation server (TDS) processes the received data and delivers it to any third party VMS Fisheries Monitoring Software application in the appropriate format used at the National FMC. BlueTraker VMS solution enables tracking fishing vessels wherever they might be, even in the Sea area A4.

BlueTraker VMS solution has been thoroughly tested and has already been operational for years in several countries. The system complies with EU, NEAFC, NAFO and SEAFO regulations on data exchange, and to bilateral agreements commonly made between nations. It also fully complies with EU Commission Regulation Nos. 2244/2003, 1224/2009 and Implementing Regulation No. 404/2011.

Vessel Monitoring Systems provide regular reports of the fishing vessel’s location, speed, bearing, eLogBook data and other information to the relevant fisheries management authority.

Features Overview

communication_system

Hybrid Communication System – SAT and GSM/GPRS

BlueTraker VMS terminals use a hybrid communication system that dramatically reduces reporting costs by using GPRS communication when in coastal waters but while on the high seas seamlessly switching to the Iridium satellite constellation.

security_features

Device Security Features

BlueTraker VMS was designed with a high level of mechanical and electrical safety and security features to avoid any tampering or fraud. The most noticeable features are an integrated design, tamper detection, antenna blockage detection, unique serial numbers engraved into the housing and unique security seals.

alarm

Ensuring fishermen’s safety

Fishermen’s safety onboard the vessel is drastically improved by offering integrated IN-PORT and ALERT buttons into the connection box. The BlueTraker VMS alert function is unique in that it will work even when the ship’s power goes down and also provides a distress call acknowledgement message which provides the fishermen with peace of mind knowing that someone is coming to their aid.

geozones

Embedded Geozones

Minimum 100 geographical areas (polygons and associated rules, e.g. vessel speed, time intervals,…) in the form of Geofences can be remotely uploaded, edited, activated and deactivated for each and every BlueTraker VMS terminal using land-based servers and the over-the-air upgrade feature. Specific geographical areas can be defined and specific operational rules can be put into effect (e.g. increased reporting frequency). Alerts can also be put in place for when a vessel is traversing geographical areas or a Geofence.

ebook

eLogbook ready

With the worldwide eLogbook initiative gathering pace helping to eradicate Illegal, Unregulated and Unreported fishing (IUU); Fisheries Monitoring Centres need to be ready to introduce Electronic Reporting Systems to ensure the traceability of their fleet’s catches. BlueTraker VMS integrates with Octopus 10, an advanced touchscreen tablet computer with built-in data-pass functionality for transferring »Catch« reports. Octopus 10 allows only approved Electronic Reporting Systems (ERS) to be integrated and authentication is required each time »Catch« report is sent using BlueTraker VMS ensuring that the system cannot be ‘spoofed’.

low_cost

Lower operating costs and high frequency of position reports at the same time

BlueTraker VMS dramatically reduces cost by using two communication channels. Switching between channels depends on vessel location. Beyond the reach of a GPRS signal, tracking data is transferred via the satellite communication channel. In coastal waters, it switches to a low-cost mobile network automatically. Reporting interval can be set differently for each communication channels, generally with a higher reporting interval when using the GPS network and a lower reporting interval when using the satellite network.

switch

Seamless automatic switching from GPRS to SAT channel and back

BlueTraker VMS technology is engineered as a hybrid solution. Switching between data delivery channels (satellite or GSM) is automatically applied, depending on the vessel’s position and location.

improvements

Low installation cost with one-cable installation

BlueTraker VMS transponder is characterized by low installation costs associated with simplified one-cable installation (connecting the device to the power source).

maintenance

Cost-efficient operation

BlueTraker VMS transponder is a maintenance-free device that offers reliable and cost-efficient operation. The device is fully remote controlled and upgradable via satellite or GSM network without interruption of the transponder operation. So there is no need for costly and time-consuming manual update physically onboard the ship.

communication_channel

Connectivity with 3rd party GIS software

BlueTraker VMS system enables integration with the existing FMC infrastructure regardless of the communication channel.

battery

Continuous operation even in the case of vessels power failure

BlueTraker VMS transponder operates for up to 3 full days on the rechargeable internal battery in the event of an external power failure or if the primary power source is being disconnected.

security

Unrivaled safety and security level

Several mechanical and electrical security measures protect data integrity and security from tampering or fraud. Hardwired security codes prevent swapping of modules. Sealed with laser marked wiring. Access to the software code can be disabled remotely to prevent against hacking/patching.

certification

Compliant with EU fishing regulations

Fully compliant with Council Regulation (EC) Nos.2371/2002 and 1224/2009
