About BlueTraker® VMS, fisheries monitoring terminal:
The BlueTraker® VMS is the latest generation of marine grade satellite terminals especially designed to monitor fishing vessels in seas worldwide.
Compared to other tracking and monitoring solutions, BlueTraker® VMS terminals offer several unparalleled benefits, enabling clients to gain better overall performance for the same or a lower cost of operation. BlueTraker® VMS offers a fully integrated design by housing all electronics, antennas, GNSS receiver, satellite communication channels as well as the back-up rechargeable battery inside a single device housing, further improving security.
Over-The-Air upgrade functionality for firmware and geo-zones upgrades is another feature highly regarded by fleet managements worldwide.
By utilising multiple global satellite positioning services (GPS, Glonass and Galileo (when effective)), the positioning of fishing vessels is highly accurate, while Iridium satellite communication constellation enables tracking regardless of a vessel’s position, even in the most problematic signal coverage areas, such as A4 geographic locations in the Northern Hemisphere.
An Arctic version of the BlueTraker® device is also available, which was developed for operation in extreme weather conditions, in temperatures as low as -50°C.
