The Basis of your SSAS Solution

The SOLAS Resolution XI-2/6 requires vessels of +500 GT to carry a Ship Security Alert System (SSAS) on board.

The SAILOR SC4000 Iridium can easily be combined with a SSAS kit complying with all requirements and approved by the major classification societies.

The SSAS add-on solution is simple to install, and consists of a SSAS connection box, 2 alert buttons and one test button. It is thus an obvious choice if you are required to fit an SSAS and need the voice communication as well.

Iridium SSAS Benefits:

  • Complies with SOLAS XI-2/6 resolution.
  • No additional SSAS signing fees – apart from the standard Iridium subscription.
  • True global coverage.
  • SSAS alerts transmitted directly to specific recipients.
  • Easy configuration of SSAS recipients and retransmission interval.
  • Cost effective solution.
  • Simple installation.
  • Up to four alert buttons possible.
  • Web-based tracking solution available.
