Vessel monitoring system
The global coverage provided by the Inmarsat-C satellite network, alows reception and transmision of messages from any ocean, directly to an e-mail address, SMS, fax, Telex or another Inmarsat-C or mini-C transceiver.
Depending on Inmarsat-C and mini-C model, easyMail is prepared for Enhanced Group Call (EGC) reception, comprising of FleetNet and SafetyNet. EGC supports reception of free Inmarsat-C broadcasted weather reports and maritme safety warnings etc, making easyMail more and more popular onboard commercial ships, fishing vessels and ocean going yachts, as the most simple and cost-efficient communications solution.
VMS Working Principle [PATENT PENDING]
The above block diagram illustrates the concept and principle of Vessel Monitoring SCADA System. The SCADA systems consist of three major layers. They are Field components, PLC systems and SAT systems respectively. The first layer is the generation & processing of SCADA data’s, the second layer is the collection & conversion of SCADA data’s and the third layer’s propagating the SCADA system data to land office by SAT systems.
VMS for Marine Application:
Using SCADA systems to monitor & control the Vessel equipment, it is also able to control the action of vessel systems by locally as well remotely. The vessel monitoring SCADA system constitutes of total ship alarm status, warning alert, vessel fuel bunkering management, tank level management and engine management. The above mentioned system data can be monitored from any particular location to any land office at any specified time of interval without delay. The lists of ship monitoring systems are as follows:
1. RPM monitoring
2. Fuel monitoring,
3. Engine alarm monitor & control and
4. Vessel distress to mobile phone as well as an email to land office.
5. Tank level monitoring (Optional)

The “Vessel Monitoring System” [VMS] is NOT an aid to navigation. Fleet Automation Services Pte Ltd actively promotes VMS as a “Management Information Tool” and its use is not intended as a replacement for any other devices that may actively monitor the same function(s). A cautious navigator does not rely on a single source of information for monitoring a Vessel’s Asset Information Data [VAID]. Fleet Automation Services works in conjunction with many different information producing devices, cabling and other elements, and therefore is not in any way responsible for any damages to person or property, in any way, even if incorrect information is displayed, or not displayed on the Vessel Monitoring System.
