    INMARSAT C SYSTEM OVERVIEW Introduction The Inmarsat C system provides worldwide telex and data transmission and reception of written information to owners of an Inmarsat C transceiver or a terrestrial telex network via satellite. Further, e-mail may be sent via the internet. Communication mode is store-and-forward telex, which means all information sent are first stored at an LES and then delivered to designated party.

    LRIT COMPLIANCE This equipment can function as a marine communications terminal for the LRIT (Long-Range Identification and Tracking) system, as prescribed by the IMO regulation MSC.202(81). The LRIT uses the FELCOM's Data Report/Polling feature for LRIT position reporting. The LRIT system is fully automatic, thus no operation is required of the user. However, follow the guidelines shown below to use this equipment as an LRIT device.

  • Page 20

    LRIT COMPLIANCE Notes on the LRIT system • Power the equipment and keep it logged in at all times except for special occasions such as when the ship is dry-docked for repairs. Position information is automatically sent at fixed intervals, thus no operation is required. However, keep the equipment in a ready state to received commands from the LRIT data center.
