The FELCOM 16/FFA facility is based on the Inmarsat mini-C mobile earth station. The Inmarsat mini-C system is proven for VMS (Vessel Monitoring System), guaranteeing high performance.
The information transmitted includes ship’s current position and identification. A backup battery is available as an option to drive the system up to five days for continual data transmission. Furthermore, its polling function enables tracking of a ship even after the loss of ship's communication.
The FELCOM 16/FFA can be easily installed anywhere in the bridge thanks to its compact size.
