This is to advise the requirements and solutions JRC offers for
LRIT, including practical notes.
Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT) is a global
monitoring system of the ship's movements. Ships are required to fit a system
that automatically transmits information, such as identity, position and the
date and time of the position at time of transmission. Ships are required to
have such a system installed on the first radio inspection day after 31 December
2008, according to MSC.202 (81).
The following ships (engaged on international voyages) are
required to implement LRIT:
- All passenger ships, including high speed craft
- Cargo ships, including high speed craft of 300 gross tonnage and above
- Mobile offshore drilling units
Note that even if your Inmarsat C terminal currently not requires LRIT
operation, updating software is highly recommended in case of possible future
The JUE-95LT is a simple-to-install stand alone system that will easily and
accurately transmit key information to improve the safety of life at sea.
FLEXIBLE INSTALLATION APPROACH
The JUE-95LT system has the same cable management philosophy resembling all
other Inmarsat products that JRC is offering, allowing for an easy installation
as only a single coax cable is used between antenna and terminal. Both are very
compact and can be easily installed on any size and type of vessel.
The Long-Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT) regulation
will apply to the following ship types engaged on international voyages:
- All passenger ships including high speed craft,
- Cargo ships, including high speed craft of 300 gross tonnage and above,
- Mobile offshore drilling units.
All vessels of 300 gross tonnage and above on international
voyage will need to be compliant with LRIT regulations.
Those ships operating exclusively in coastal Sea Area A1 and
fitted with an Automatic Identification System will be exempt, while ships
operating in near-coastal Sea Area A2 not fitted with Inmarsat C GMDSS will be
required to fit a compliant terminal. Ships operating in polar Sea Area A4 above
70 degrees latitude will require a non-Inmarsat terminal that operates in
conjunction with a low-earth orbit Communication Service Provider (CSP) approved
by the Flag in conjunction with its appointed Application Service Provider
A phased approach to the implementation of the regulation will
allow for compliance not later than the first radio survey after 31 December
2008 or in the case of ships operating in Sea Area A4 not later than the first
radio survey after 1 July 2009.
The terminal must be capable of being configured to transmit the
following minimum information set in an Automatic Position Report (APR):
- The identity of the ship
- The position of the ship, and
- The date and time of the position.
In addition, the terminal must be able to respond to polling for
an on-demand position report and be able immediately to respond to instructions
to modify the APR interval to a frequency of a maximum of one every 15 minutes.
APR's will be transmitted as a minimum 4 times per day to a National Data Centre
(NDC), a Cooperative Data Centre (CDC), or a Regional Data Centre (RDC)
nominated by the Flag (collectively "DC's").
