NOAA Approves Marine Monitoring System (1/11)
Thursday, January 11, 2007 | Comments
ORBCOMM value-added reseller (VAR) SkyMate, a marine satellite communications systems provider, has received full type approval from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for its enhanced Vessel Monitoring System (VMS). Increasing numbers of commercial fishermen, including reef fishermen in the Southeast, who are facing a March 7 compliance deadline, are required to install and operate tracking systems on their vessels to meet government regulations. SkyMate's recent type approval gives these fishermen an option to help them to manage their fishing business. Using the e-mail, forms, and weather services features, fishermen can stay in touch with shore, fish more safely, and coordinate with buyers and suppliers to increase revenue and reduce costs.
