GOST Upgrades Its Vessel Tracking and Security Systems With ORBCOMM’s Next-Gen Satellite IoT Technology
Leverages ORBCOMM’s new feature-rich satellite IoT terminal to monitor and manage vessels around the world with enhanced speed, security and reliability
ROCHELLE PARK, N.J., March 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced that Global Ocean Security Technologies (GOST), a provider of marine security, tracking, monitoring and video surveillance systems, has selected ORBCOMM’s next-generation satellite IoT technology to upgrade its global vessel tracking and security systems.
GOST is using ORBCOMM’s new, feature-rich satellite terminal, which is powered by the IsatData Pro (IDP) satellite network and provides enhanced two-way communication speed, global coverage and low power consumption for reliable vessel tracking, monitoring and surveillance. Leveraging ORBCOMM’s latest satellite IoT technology, GOST can deliver uninterrupted visibility and control for any size vessel – from tenders to ships to luxury yachts – and help protect against theft, fire, high water in the bilge, low voltage, loss of shore power and intrusion. GOST’s extensive portfolio of sensors, sirens, acoustic sound barriers and flashing lights can chase off intruders and reduce threats before the vessel is ever stolen for maximum safety and security.
ORBCOMM’s powerful, environmentally sealed terminal is integrated with GOST’s secure, intuitive vessel tracking interface, which enables geofence control and alerts, remote arm/disarm functionality as well as real-time and historic GPS tracking anywhere in the world from a desktop or mobile device. Created specifically for private tracking and alerting of events, the state-of-the-art GOST platform also allows family and friends to provide support if a vessel is in peril or notify maritime authorities if there is a deviation from the float plan for immediate action.
“ORBCOMM’s next-gen satellite IoT technology is an integral component in GOST’s vessel tracking and safety systems to ensure optimal reliability, global coverage and longevity for its customers whether their assets are at sea, in a harbor or docked at a marina,” said Christian Allred, ORBCOMM’s Executive Vice President of Global Sales. “ORBCOMM’s two-way satellite terminals enable GOST’s customers to monitor and manage their vessels from anywhere in the world, providing the peace of mind that their investments are safe and protected around the clock.”
