Inmarsat’s new Voice Distress Calling service provides full priority access in both ship-shore and shore-ship communication in emergency situations, together with pre-emption for distress priority calls initiated by activation of the ‘red button’. Essentially, the service is able to interrupt any non-urgent calls once the distress button has been activated and gives full priority to subsequent emergency communications and so improve safety onboard.
Thrane & Thrane is the first manufacturer to offer a system to take advantage of this new safety service – the new SAILOR 3771 Alarm Panel FleetBroadband.
