• Autonomous system: it is not necessary to install any other systems on board.

 

  • The system includes:

 

Antenna: Iridium and GPS communications

 

Interface: Data transmission between the computer (with MSB software installed) and the antenna. The MSB software processes the data received by MSR2.

 

  • Global coverage with Iridium satellite communications.

 

  • System developed for the management of bulk data to avoid high communications costs in the sending/receptions of fishing data from the buoys.

 

  • LEDs for monitoring the operation of the equipment .

 

  • Fast reception and sending of messages, less than one minute latency.

 

  • Internal GPS and possibility to use the external GPS through NMEA.

 

  • Connection to PC through USB or serial port.

 

  • Fast and direct communications with the buoys: reception of positions or soundings,  sendings of telecommands, GPS position of purse seine, automatic activation of buoys, etc…
